Do you use dishcloth scrubbies for your kitchen clean up? I adapted my pattern to include the nylon scrubbie and some crochet and came up with a triangular dishcloth scrubbie.You can buy packs of nylon scrubbies for $1, and they come in various colours. They are quick and easy to make and make great little gifts or craft sale items.
You can make your own scrubbies but I find buying them at dollar stores is a lot quicker and at 6 in a packet you can’t go wrong. The first thing to do was stitch with a tapestry needle and some yarn all around the outside of the scrubbie. I found stitching around the middle made it easier to start the crochet. It was a challenge to get the crochet hook through the scrubbie. This way I had the foundation row to work from.
Then with a 5mm crochet hook I did 30 single crochets into the stitches.
-nylon scrubbie purchased from dollar stores
-dish cloth yarn
-5 mm crochet hook
Do 30 single crochets into the stitches around the center of the scrubbie.
After doing a round of sc, join with a slip stitch.
Row 1 – ch1, sc in next 12 stitches, (2 sc, ch2, 2 sc) in next stitch, this forms the center point of the cloth, sc in next 12 stitches
Row 2 – turn, ch 3, dc to center point, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in this stitch, dc end of row. *(the center point/corner stitch is the ch 2 space of previous row)
Row 3 – turn, sc to corner, (2 sc, ch 2, 2 sc) in corner stitch, sc in each stitch back to top. *(the center point/corner stitch is the ch 2 space of previous row)
Repeat row 2 and 3 3 more times. On the last row of sc go across the top of the cloth as well to finish it off neatly.
I think this is a great pattern and would love to make a few. However I don’t understand
how to do the 3rd row. The 1st and 2nd rows were easy. Do I turn after the 2nd row and where is the corner stitch that I sc to? I’ve tried various scenerious but have not been able
to figure it out.
I do hope you can help me. It’ll be much appreciated.
Thanking you in anticipation
Hi Jackie, thanks for contacting me. It has been awhile since I made this pattern, so had to work through it again. I guess what is clear to me is as clear as mud to others.
Yes you turn work for row 3, so I added that word. I also added about the corner stitch, you work to the chain 2 space of the previous row. Give that a try and see if it works for you. Hear from you soon.
Thanks for the amended pattern.
You are welcome, hope that it helps you with making the triangular scrubbies. Let me know.
I finished the triangular scrubby and it looks great thanks to you. I will now try the round scrubby.
