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.
