Free pattern: Popcorn Hexagon

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

I usually post roundups on Friday, but this week I’m at a conference, so I decided to share another free pattern!

This crochet scrubby pattern 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 textured scrubby is great for washing off dirt or just massaging your face after a long day. I’ve mentioned before that I love using cotton scrubbies and washcloths. They soften after washing in a way that store bought cloths don’t.

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

I prefer using organic cotton for scrubbies and washcloths. (To find out why, you may want to read this guest post on eco-friendly yarns.) Galler Yarns Inca Eco is a favorite organic cotton yarn, and it also uses low impact dyes, so its great for baby projects, too.

A set of these scrubbies makes a great baby shower gift, or package several with some special soaps as part of a spa basket for a friend.
