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.
You will need:
-nylon scrubbie from dollar stores
-4 mm crochet hook
Here is a collection of dishcloths I’ve made with the dishcloth scrubby on to. Does it remind you of a fried egg?
- 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.
