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.

If you are going to print the pattern I’d love to hear from you. I don’t guarantee it to be perfect, as I’m not a professional pattern writer but just someone who likes to share with others.
