Cotton yarn pads crochet patterns

Thanks for checking out my cotton yarn pads crochet pattern. I’ve decided to replace my cotton wool pads with cotton yarn pads, and I will never go back! There’s so many benefits to making the change.

Firstly, the eco-friendly face pads will help you do your bit to help our plant as you’ll be sending less to landfills. Secondly, you’ll save money. Unlike your usual cotton wool pads, the cotton yarn pads are re-usable so you’ll never have to buy more again. If your anything like me you’ve probably got a little leftover cotton in your stash waiting for a purpose. Thirdly, I have to admit the cotton yarn pads look so much nicer than their rival. Not only do they look nicer they also feel nicer on your skin. It feels like they’re gently exfoliating while removing your make-up. I’ve also tried applying face serums and creams with them too and had no problems at all.

To summarise:

  • Eco-friendly – Send less to landfills and do your bit to save our planet.
  • Cheaper – Use up leftover cotton, no need to buy more disposable pads.
  • Quality – They look and feel superior in quality.
  • Exfoliating – Gently exfoliates skin as your removing your make-up.
  • Super soft – Soft enough to apply your creams and serums.

Cotton yarn pads description

The cotton yarn pads are a great alternative to cotton wool pads. They are exactly the same size in diameter, but are thicker and better quality. The face pads have a simple yet pretty texture and are ideal for removing make up and applying creams and serums. The face pads are also re-usable, therefor helping both your pocket and the environment.

How they’re made

The cotton yarn pads crochet pattern is easy skill level. You’ll need to know your basic crochet stitches and also know how to work into a magic ring. Additionally you’ll need to know how to make a cluster stitch stitch, although instructions on this stitch are included in the pattern. To make the cotton yarn pads I used white aran (weight 4) yarn and a 5mm crochet hook. As the name suggests, cotton will work best for this pattern. I chose to use white like a traditional cotton wool pad but you could use any colour you like. The crochet pattern is very fast, it’s only 3 small rounds to complete one face pad. You can easily whip a basket full up in no time!
