I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Here is the easiest possible crocheted project for beginners. Using only a single crochet stitch, learn how to crochet by making a Single Crochet Face Scrubbie Cotton Pad.  Based on single crochets, it allows you to practice the most basic crochet stitch – the single crochet.

How to make a Single Crochet Face Scrubbie Cotton Pad Step by step


  1. Start with a slip knot on your crochet hook. If you don’t know how to make one, you can find a tutorial here
  2. Make ch 11.

Row 1:

 Sc in the 2nd ch from the hook (it will be the 10th chain you make). Sc in each chain. (You will get 10 sc in a row, as we needed 1 additional chain to make a sts).

Row 2 – 10: 

ch 1 and turn. Make sc in each chain (10 sc in a row). Repeat 8 times, to get 10 rows in total.

Finish off: 

Leave 3 in of the yarn end and cut off the rest. Yarn over and pull through. Pull the hook out.

Pull the yarn to tighten the knot. Weave in the ends.
