Scrubbie Dishcloths

posted in: Crochet | 0

Dishcloth scrubbies are great for cleaning those hard to clean dishes and pots  My finished version reminds me of a little flower.  You can make the scrubbie yourself but I buy mine at dollar stores – usually in packets of 6 for $1.  I find working with the nylon required to make the scrubbies is very hard on my hands.

A  print version of the pattern has been added.  Just click here and then click print button and you can print with or without the image.

Here is a collection of dishcloths I’ve made with the dishcloth scrubby on to. Does it remind you of a fried egg?

The pattern:

  • Crochet 30 stitches around the center of the scrubbie
  • Rnd 1 – Single crochet into each stitch for the second row. Join the first to last with a slip stitch and chain 2.
  • Rnd 2 – * sc in next 3 stitches, 2 sc in the next sc * repeat * to * to end, slip stitch to join first to last ch 3
  • Rnd 3 – dc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, * dc in next 2 sc, 2 dc in next sc * repeat to end, if any stitches remain dc in each one, sl st join last to first
  • Repeat previous row 4 times (or more if you want a bigger cloth)

The edging is a shell stitch, sl st in next dc * skip 2 dc, 5 dc in next dc, skip 2 dc, sl st in next dc * repeat * to * to end.

I do not claim this pattern to be absolutely perfect, but those that crochet on a regular basis will be able to figure it out and adjust where necessary. I’m better at doing crochet than writing down a pattern.

Have you seen my triangular dishcloth scrubbie pattern?  These make great gifts or items for bazaars and craft sales.
