Homemade for the Holidays #13: Crocheted Scrubbies

Two crocheted scrubbies on a table.

I wanted to share these very quick crocheted kitchen scrubbie patterns.  These make great gifts!  Crochet several of these and wrap them together with a package of pretty kitchen towels for a nice gift.  The first pattern below is actually one that I created.  I have been using the second pattern below to make my scrubbies, but then I decided to try to create a pattern that was even easier and quicker!  This first pattern is just that!  Yeah!

So…take your pick.  These are both really easy to make…have fun!  Oh…the yarn you use is called Plastic Canvas Yarn or Nylon Yarn.  I used to be able to find it at Walmart, but since they have cut way back in their craft supplies, you may need to go to a craft store to find this yarn.  have fun!

Kitchen Scrubbie

Materials:

Size H Crochet Hook

Plastic Canvas Yarn (100% Nylon)

HDC = Half Double Crochet

SC = Single Crochet

Instructions:

Chain 15

Row 1:  HDC in 2nd chain from hook.  HDC in remaining 13 stitches of beginning chain.  Chain 1.  Turn.  (14 HDC)

Row 2:  HDC in each stitch of Row 1.  Chain 1.  Turn.  (14 HDC)

Rows 3-6:  HDC in each stitch.  Chain 1.  Turn.  (14 HDC)

Fold scrubbie in half so that it is doubled over.  Match sides together and then begin Row 7.

Row 7:  SC in each stitch around the entire outside of scrubbie, crocheting both sides together (on 3 sides).  One side (the folded side), you will just do SC stitches across that side.  You won’t actually be crocheting two sides together when crocheting that side.  Join with a slip stitch in beginning SC to end row.   Finish off and weave in ends.


Round Scrubbie

plastic canvas yarn

I/9 – 5.50mm crochet hook

Rnd 1: ch 4, 7 dc in 4th ch from hk, join to top of beg ch 3 (8 dc)

Rnd 2: ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in each dc around, join (16 dc)

Rnd 3: ch 3, dc in same st, dc in next dc, *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc, rep from *around, join (24 dc)

Finish off.

Make 2 of the above circles. Do not finish off the 2nd circle.

Place the two circles together with wrong sides facing together and join with a row of sc.

  1. This is by far my favorite scrubbie pattern to make. Super easy, fast to make, and most effective at cleaning. I toss mine in the wash when they get icky and let them air dry. With COVID, I was able to make over 120 of these this summer and give them all to people I work with for Christmas. Thanks for providing this pattern. Everyone has loved them!
  2. Thanks so much for the idea! I;m forever grabbing yarn at yard sales and need all the help I can get to use it up!
  3. Hi Sheri, I bought some yarn today to make these scrubbies, but when I crocheted the square one, it was tiny - like 2" square. What are the dimensions on the square scrubbies? The nylon yarn I purchased may not be the right kind. Thank you!
    1. Hi Wendy, That is about the right size. I like to use these scrubbies to scrub stuck on food when I am doing dishes. They aren't supposed to be that big. It sounds like you did it just right! Have fun!
  4. Thanks for sharing! I just made one and I love it. It's so much easier that using netting.
    1. Yeah Kris! I'm glad you like it. I can't imagine crocheting with netting either. I would think it would be so hard on your hands. Anyway, glad you enjoyed the scrubbie!
      1. Surprisingly nylon net strips are not hard on my hands. It is a pain to cut them and wrap them though.
  5. Can you tell me what brand of yarn you used for this project, and any other places that you've found it besides Walmart? Thanks!
    1. I can't remember the brand of yarn, but it is yarn used for doing plastic canvas projects. I think sometimes it is called plastic canvas yarn or nylon yarn. If you can't find it at Walmart, any hobby store such as Hobby Lobby or even a craft store should have it. Hope that helps! Here is a link to some of this yarn on Amazon: https://amzn.to/1WbwKTT.
  6. I'm definitely going to make some of these! I'm tired of buying the plastic ones in the store that fall apart after a month or so.
    1. HI Sheri! I love my scrubbies! I make quite a few and keep them in my kitchen towel drawer. They last forever too, so a few lasts a long time. They are so easy to make and make great little gifts too. Have fun!
  7. Thanx for sharing this pattern! I am looking forward to trying the nylon yarn. I tried to make scrubbies with the netting and they were a NIGHTMARE! I'm sure this will be a lot easier! How much yarn does it take for one? I plan on getting the 20 yard cards, and would like to get enough for a few of them. Have a good day!
    1. Hi Carol, I can't remember how many yards it takes. I used to get those little packages of the nylon yarn and it took two to make a scrubbie. I guess just get some and try it out. I love my scrubbies!
  8. hi Sheri, not sure if you received my reply, computers ??? !!! i do want to buy your scrubbies, color doesn't matter. not sure the price, i know i bought one out here i found for 2.00$ each. please let me know, i will order some from you. sue p
    1. Hi Sue, Sorry but I did not receive your email. I emailed you too...did you receive that email? Anyways..I think $2 a piece sounds fine. However many you order I'll probably just add on a few dollars to cover the shipping cost. So...just let me know how many you want. Maybe email me at sheri AT sherigraham DOT com. That way I will have your current email address too and can get your mailing address. I look forward to doing some crocheting for you!

        2. Hi Sue, I got your address in the email you sent. I replied back to your email but haven't heard back from you yet. I thought I'd leave a comment here too. I was needing to know if you want the round or square version of the scrubbie. I am going to get started crocheting them today and wanted to know before I start. You can either leave me a comment here or contact me again through the contact form here on the site. Thanks!!!
  9. Hi Sheri, do you sell the round scrubbies ?? used to work in an office, one of my co-workers mom-in-law made them, sold them, but, i have a different job, and i love using the scrubbies !! am trying to find out who makes them, and I want to buy some, do you think you can help. p.s. do not want to make them, just purchase them. thank you, SUe
    1. Hi Sue! I could make some for you to buy if you want. They don't take too long to make either. How many do you want, and do you have preference for color? I'm not sure what I have on hand for colors but if you want a specific color I'll see what I can do. Send me an email through the Contact Us page and then I'll email you back a price for however many you want, ok? I'll look forward to hearing from you!
  10. The Plastic Canvas yarn is really hard to find, but Michaels has some "Cord for Plastic Canvas" made by Darice. It's about $2 for 27 years. Went specifically looking for it just for this pattern. :)
