Scrubbies!

I made these scrubbies for a friend who is helping make them to donate to the Royal Canadian Legion's Ladies' Auxiliary. I really, really like them, and I think I'm going to make some more. The center is just a plastic dish scrubber (6 in a bag for $1.25 at Dollarama!) and the frill is Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn crocheted around. I definitely need a few of these in my kitchen sink and in my camping kit!

I don't have a pattern for these - my friend and I just sort of figured it out from the example scrubbie she was given. This is what I've been doing:

  1. Base round: Single crochet around the scrubber: for each stitch, put your hook through a little bit of the scrubber as if it was the stitch into which you were working. Then sl st to join and ch 2. I usually have around 30 sc in the base round.
  2. Round 2: 2dc in each sc, sl st to join and ch 2.
  3. Round 3: 2dc in 1 dc, then dc in each of next 2 dc. Repeat around, sl st to join, and chain 2. You may not have exactly the right number of stitches to complete the 2dc-1dc-1dc pattern. That's okay.
  4. Round 4 (final round): 2dc in 1 dc, then dc in each of next 3 dc. Repeat around, sl st to join, and finish off. Again, you may not have have exactly the right number of stitches to complete the 2dc-1dc-1dc-1dc pattern. Still okay. =)


The number of stitches doesn't really matter. If you want your frill more or less frilly, either add or subtract the number of "1dc in next dc" stitches between each "2dc in 1dc". Fewer stitches between the "2dc in 1dc" makes for a frillier frill. ;) I use a size F crochet hook.

If any of this doesn't make sense, or if you have trouble with trying to make one, just let me know and I'll see if I can help.

I certainly don't own the idea or the pattern, so feel free to give it a shot on your own. Just please don't claim it as yours or try to sell the pattern.
