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.

Post Stitch Hexagon, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares @ucrafter in @galleryarns Inca EcoIn addition to being organic, Galler Yarns Inca Eco uses low impact dyes, so its great for baby projects, too.

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.

Crochet 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.

Crochet 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.

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

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).

This post contains affiliate links.

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.

Crochet Pattern: ’80s Remix Chain

'80s Remix Chain, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

I’ve seen my fair share of fat gold chains. After all, I grew up in New York City during the birth of the hip hop scene. In 2013, I was asked to make some samples for the Kollabora booth at Vogue Knitting Live, and this is one of them.

My friend, Carlota Zimmerman, also remembers those days. We shared a few laughs and memories during this summer time photo shoot. However, this eye catching necklace could be worn in any season.

I’m sharing this as a blog freebie. Enjoy!
