I got the idea to make my daughter these Super Simple Face Cloths after watching her purchase package after package of disposable make-up removal pads. I was working up new drink coasters and thought just stopping a few rounds before getting to coaster size would be the perfect size for a face cloth. The Super Simple Face Cloth Crochet Pattern is a no frills make, but it gets the job done!
If you are looking to practice crocheting in the round, these Super Simple Face Cloths are perfect practice!

A few things about this pattern. For this Face Cloths crochet pattern, I suggest using a cotton yarn. Cotton is easy to care for and absorbent.
These reusable Super Simple Face Cloths are great for face cleaning and make-up removal. They are soft, and gentle on the face.
Want a cool treat? Get them damp with some water or some witch hazel and pop them in the fridge or freezer to use later.
I’ve chosen Loops and Threads Coastal Cotton (90% cotton, 10% acrylic) for this pattern mainly because I already had it in my yarn stash. Any worsted weight cotton yarn will work though, so go though your yarn stash and see what you’ve got. If you are using a cotton blend yarn, my suggestion is to use a blend that has at least 70% Cotton. The higher the percentage of cotton the better. 100% cotton yarn would be ideal.
Washing these super simple face cloths is a breeze. I just toss them in the wash with my bathroom towels and washcloths. I don’t run them through the dryer because they tend to curl up and go wonky on me if I do. Instead, I just lay the face cloths out flat and let them air dry for a couple hours.
For the Super Simple Face Cloth Crochet Pattern you will need:
Yarn-For each face cloth you will need about 5g/9.5m or .18oz/10yd of a worsted weight #4 cotton yarn or cotton blend yarn (at least 70% cotton).
For a set of 4 face cloths, you will need about 20g/37.5m or .71oz/41yd of worsted weight #4 cotton yarn or cotton blend yarn.
Hook- 4.5mm crochet hook (sometimes called a #7 hook or a G+ hook). I used my Furls Streamline Swirl 4.5mm G+ hook in Andromeda, you can find them here (this is an affiliate link). If you prefer, you could use a 4.0mm (G) hook or a 5.0mm (H) hook, but your coaster measurements will be slightly different and your yarn usage will also be different.
Extras- yarn needle and scissors
Stitches used in this pattern
CH– Chain SLST- Slip Stitch
ST(S)– Stitch(es) HDC- Half Double Crochet
Finished Size of each Super Simple Face Cloth
Approximately 3.5″ (9 cm) across
