Introduction

In my home there are three women and we all wear makeup, we get through an unbeliveable amount of disposable removers.In my bid to be environmentally friendly I decided to make a batch of reusable makeup remover padsThese are a great stashbuster. Easy to make. I made each of us seven pads one for everyday of the week.
These pads get softer with every wash. Handwash is best, but I do wash in the machine.I put mine in one of those meshed bags with a zipper used for small things usually socks.If you happen to have some of the coarser cotton yarns they make great exfoliating pads.

 

Materials List

Hook size :3.5mm feel free to use whatever hook for the yarn you are using.

 

I used a variety of cotton, Rowan's cotton yarn milk, purelife ,rowan denim, sirdar, debbie bliss dk cotton, sublime's organic cotton.Feel free to use whatever yarn you have as long as it's cotton. It doesn't have to be done in one colour making it a great stashbuster.

quick question:  Is the pattern really 4 rounds?  The photo looks like just 2. 

I plan to make a bunch of these to put into the gift baskets that I make - some I sell, others are for friends and family.

Hi.  I tired making these the other day....... the picture looks like 2 rows with double crochet..... your pattern is 4 rows..... tripple crochet and 64 stiches total at the end?  With a cotton yarn, it's more the size of a potholder......  I don't mean to be rude, but could you please clarify your pattern a bit?  What did I miss?  Thank you......

@barbarann20 

 This pattern is a UK pattern so you have to use the conversion to US for the correct crochet terms, so in the UK the Term "TR"

  is actually a DC or double crochet in US terms.  I hope this helps and you can find the conversion chart here.

I just made one, and when I finish row 2, it looks just like the photo.

I stopped after row 2 also.  Mine looks great!  Got a little confused in row two but figured to do what it says in the parenthesis, only dcs instead of trs, like Simmy wrote.  Next one, I'm going to continue on and see what happens.

@murple63

Did you miss the note at the end of the pattern "please don't use this pattern to sell"? Will you be passing on a portion of your profits to the pattern creator? This is one of the reasons many crafters don't share their patterns with others. It's on the same level as pirating music or movies.

@simmywade

Thanks for the link to the conversion chart - mine didn't survive the transfer to a new computer. I have lots of British crochet books that I haven't used for a bit because of it.

When my husband and I got married 13 years ago, a friend gave us a bunch of these as a wedding present. She gave them to us as pot scrubbers though. They were made with that plastic netting stuff that bath scrubbies are made of.. You can get it at craft stores. Anyways, I fell in love with them and last Christmas she gave us some more, I asked if I could get the pattern and she said her mom made them and she would ask for it.. She never has been able to get it for me.. I am so excited to find it here.
