A DIY Original pattern for our CROCHET enthusiasts: I love projects that make sense and can be used daily. Below I share an Eco-friendly little makeup removal flower that you crochet. These are so easy that you will crochet a pile of them out of your cotton sports weight yarn scraps. They make wonderful gifts. I crochet about 10 of them for girlfriend gifts and place them in a toile 4×6 gift bag- so cute.
They save your washcloths- look sweet filling a bowl in your bathroom, and are simply thrown in with your laundry along with your wash.
For this project you will need:
US Size D Crochet Hook. 3.0 mm.
Sport weight cotton yarn scraps– Using sport weight creates a smaller, tighter make up removal flower.
