Luxurious Crocheted Spa Face Cloth Pattern

This face cloth was created using Tunisian crochet. I love these because they are soft and smooth, perfect for gentle cleansing on the knit side, yet they are bumpy and perfect for a bit of scrubbing or exfoliating on the reverse side.

        

Materials

Less than 50 yards of worsted weight cotton in the main color

Less than 20 yards of worsted weight cotton in a contrasting color

Standard or afghan hook, size I/9 (5.5mm)

Instructions

Foundation chain

Chain 21. Working into the bump on the back of the chain, insert your hook into the second bump from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop. Keep this loop on the hook. Repeat for all remaining bumps in the chain. At the end of the row there should be 20 loops on the hook.

Return pass

Do not turn the work. Keep working from the front of the cloth.

YO, pull through 1 loop on the hook. *YO, pull through 2 loops on the hook.* Repeat *to* until there is only 1 loop remaining on the hook.

Forward pass

Insert hook behind the 2nd vertical bar from the hook, all the way through to the back of the work. YO and pull up a loop. *Insert the hook behind the next vertical bar through to the back of the work. YO and pull up a loop.* Repeat from *to* until there are 20 loops on the hook.

Work 20 rows in Tunisian Knit Stitch (TKS). One row in TKS includes 1 return pass and 1 forward pass. 

To cast off

Complete 1 return pass. Complete the forward pass as follows:

Insert hook behind the 2nd vertical bar from the hook, all the way through to the back of the work. YO and pull up a loop. YO and pull through both loops. There should be 1 loop remaining on the hook. *Insert the hook behind the next vertical bar through to the back of the work. YO and pull through both loops* Repeat from *to* to the end of the row. Fasten off.

Finishing

Work a single crochet border around the edge of the square in a contrasting color. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
