Crochet Pattern: Post Stitch Hexagon

Post Stitch Hexagon, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares @ucrafter in @galleryarns Inca Eco

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.

As you may have guessed from the Popcorn Hexagon and Circle Hexagon patterns, I love to use organic cotton yarn for face scrubbies. They soften wonderfully in the wash and are gentle on sensitive skin.

A set of these scrubbies would be a great baby shower gift, or package several with some special soaps as part of a spa basket for a friend. This hexagon is the same size as the two linked above, so you can also make a hexagon blanket combining all three patterns.
