Cotton Rounds

Cotton Rounds 2It’s not very often that I make something for myself.  But I took a break over the last couple of days and did just that.  I saw a pin on Pinterest for a pattern in a UK crochet magazine that was an idea I could really use. cotton roundsI like to use cotton rounds to clean my face with astringent.

Even at 35 (Oops. There it is.)  it’s still the only way I feel like I’ve gotten the dirt and oil off my skin.  I fell in love with cotton rounds instead of cotton balls when I found them.  But I’m constantly buying new and throwing them away.  These rounds are also made of cotton, but are reusable.  I tried them out already and they work great.  The pin I saw on these looked like it was just one round but that seemed too small to me, so I did a second round of single crochet.  But after using them I think the single round (I did treble crochets) would work fine.
