Free pattern: Circle Hexagon

Circle Hexagon, free #crochet pattern by @ucrafter in @galleryarns Inca Eco

This pattern for a crochet scrubby was originally published on the Galler Yarns blog, which is no longer available. I made a few updates and now I’m sharing it here.

This simple scrubby is great for removing makeup (or sweat!) after the end of a long day.

Galler Yarns Inca Eco is an organic cotton yarn that uses low impact dyes, so its great for baby projects and anything used directly on the skin. Make a set for a DIY baby shower or housewarming gift. Or, piece them together to create an eco-friendly hexagon baby blanket.

Announcing the Picnic Basket Shawl Crochet-a-Long!

Picnic Basket Shawl CAL with @ucrafter, free #crochet pattern

A few weeks ago, I was chatting with members of the Underground Crafter Ravelry group about a summer crochet-a-long (CAL). Everyone agreed that the project should be both portable (for summer travel) and lacy (so it could be used right away).

This post contains affiliate links.

I found Malabrigo Sock in a beautiful colorway, Lotus, at my local yarn shop, Knitty City. I spent some time swatching and thinking about special techniques, like broomstick lace or hairpin lace, but I wasn’t convinced that carrying the extra equipment around would meet the portability requirement. It’s no secret that I love pineapples, and I eventually settled on this lovely stitch, which reminded me of a picnic basket.

Picnic Basket Shawl CAL with @ucrafter, free #crochet patternAnd this shawl definitely meets the portability requirement.

Everything you need for the shawl fits into a project bag.

If you peek inside, you can see that the bag is only half full, even with 2 skeins of yarn, a scissor, the hook, my pattern notes (including several extra pages of revisions and handwritten notes), and my Chibi tapestry needles and case.

The finished shawl will roll up small enough to fit easily into your picnic basket.

Free pattern: Scrub-a-dub-dub Washcloth

Scrub-a-dub-dub Washcloth, free #crochet pattern by @ucrafter . This stitch pattern would also make a great blanket!

I’m sure I’m not the only one, but in the summer, I shave my legs more frequently than in the winter. (That may seem a bit like too much information, but I’m sharing it for a reason!)

All of this shaving leaves my skin just as dry as it would be in the colder months, so I decided a little exfoliating was in order.

There’s nothing quite like a handmade cotton washcloth. It softens with each wash so it feels great on your skin, and it’s a great way to refresh the surface of your legs (or, really, any part of your body).

I like to use organic cotton for washcloths since they are so close to your skin. (If you are wondering why, you may enjoy this post about eco yarns.) I used Galler Yarns Inca Eco for the sample, and since it’s also colored with low-impact dyes, this washcloth also makes a great baby shower gift.
