I like this pattern as the popcorn stitches give you a little scrubbing power when you are using it. This is made with cotton yarn and a H hook. This one was hard for me to write. You can go to Annie’s Attic for tutorial to how to do the popcorn stitch. http://www.anniesattic.com/crochet/content.html?content_id=12
Ch 4, slip st tog, chain 2 and do 13 dc in ring. Slip st tog and ch 3, count this as you first dc in your popcorn stitch. Do 4 dc in same stitch, take hook out of loop and insert hook in top of first dc of group, pull dropped loop through st and ch 3. Skip next st. In next dc, *do 5 dc in st, drop lp from hook, insert hook in top of first dc of group, pull dropped lp through st, ch3. skip next st. and repeat from * around. Slip st to top of first ch and then slip st to the ch 3 loop. Ch 3, count this as you first dc in your popcorn stitch. Do 4 dc in same stitch, take hook out of loop and insert hook in top of first dc of group, pull dropped loop through st and ch 3. Now do another 5 dc in the chain 3 space, take hook out of loop and insert hook in top of first dc of group, pull dropped loop through st and ch 3. Repeat the 2 popcorn stitches in each ch 3 space around. Slip st tog and slip st to chain 3 space, ch 3, count this as you first dc in your popcorn stitch. Do 4 dc in same stitch, take hook out of loop and insert hook in top of first dc of group, pull dropped loop through st and ch 3. Now do another 5 dc in the chain 3 space, take hook out of loop and insert hook in top of first dc of group, pull dropped loop through st and ch 3. Repeat the 2 popcorn stitches in each ch 3 space around. Slip st tog, ch 3, now do 3 dc in each chain 3 space around. Slip st tog, ch 1 and sc around. Fasten off and weave in ends. 
I added the black for the eyes and smile. I just “winged” it to make the stitches for the smile.

Ch 4, slip st tog, chain 2 and do 13 dc in ring. Dc in same stitch as ch 2, then 2 dc in each st around. *Dc in next st, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around, slip st tog and ch 2. *Dc in next 2 st, then 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around, slip st tog. Ch 2, *dc in next 3 st, then 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around, slip st tog and ch 2. *Dc in next 5 st, then 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around, slip st tog and fasten off. Now make another circle the exact same way. But don’t fasten off when you get to end. Instead sc the 2 circles right sides out together. Ch 10 for a loop, sc to circle and fasten off and weave in ends. The black eyes were done separately. I chained 4 and then did 2 sc in each stitch around and then weaved in the ends so that the hole would not show. The mouth is just black yarn weaved in with a needle to look like a mouth.
