As I mentioned in a post in February, Crochetville’s Amy Shelton organized a great blog tour. Each day one (and in some cases two) crochet artists, designers, and enthusiasts do a post specifically to celebrate crochet. I decided to share a free pattern with all of you – a kitchen scrubbie.
Crochet Kitchen Scrubbie
Anyone who does dishes by hand knows that a little texture to go along with elbow grease goes a long way! Well, this kitchen scrubbie will certainly help get your dishes clean.
Yarn: Lily Sugar & Cream
Hook: Size “H” hook (5.00mm)
Foundation: Ch 10, join with sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: *Ch 5, sc in ring,* rep from * to * 35 times total.
Round 2: *Sc in next ch 5 loop, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 7 dc in same ch 5 loop (for a total of 8 dc), rep from * to * around all ch 5 loops, join with sl st to base of original ch 3.
Finishing: Ch 12, sl st at base to form a ring as a hanger, weave in ends.
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
I know many people who also use these as shower puffs. The best part is that you can just throw them in the washing machine to bring them back to life.
I hope you enjoy this pattern as well as reading all the other posts! Tomorrow is Joy Prescott and Donna Childs. I hope you will also consider signing up to receive my newsletter that is sent out once or twice a month. Finally, if you love crochet as much as those of us participating in the blog tour do, please consider joining the Crochet Guild of America. It is a wonderful organization!
