Easy Crochet Scrubby Pattern

Easy Crochet Scrubby Pattern

 

What You Need:

Difficulty Level: Beginner+ to Intermediate

Stitches Used: “Tight” Double Crochet – explained in the pattern

Yarn: 2 Skeins Red Heart Scrubby Yarn

Hook: 9.0 mm

 

 

 

After spending time working with the Scrubby yarn, I have worked out a pattern that I am very happy with.  This pattern requires two strands being crocheted together.  You can use the same colors or different colors like the examples shown above.

I would not try to do any of these with single crochet – it’s too hard to see and work into the stitches.  Half-double crochet was better but not best.  Working my regular double crochet made the scrubby too open-feeling, not enough stability.  So I settled on a double-crochet pattern that pulls tighter than normal, hence “tight double-crochet”.

My Easy Crochet Scrubby Pattern and others are available on Etsy and Ravelry, and two are currently available on Kindle:

  1. Hi I came over your patterns at Etsy looking for something useful I could manage to make. I became especially interested in the easy Chrochet Scrubby Pattern. However I see you write on Etsy that you are still using the first ones you made. What temperature do you use  cleaning  them in the washing machine so they will not smell? Can you wash them on 90 degrees?

    • Hi Hilde, and thank you for visiting! 

      Yes, we are still using the original ones I made years ago, and we just throw them in to wash with our towels now and then, but most of the time, we don’t even have to do that.  I put a couple of 3M hooks up on the splashboard behind the sink so they can hang to dry, and we rarely notice any bad smell.  90 degrees would be fine in your washer.  You can also rinse them with a little vinegar and water to keep them smelling clean.

  2. Interesting!. I began crocheting as a kid. The chaining and single and double stitches all came to me naturally. I really did enjoy trying out new patterns in making facecloths and face scrubbies and just small things.I’m pretty sure when I apply this information My little face scrubbies will certainly be making their way back to my Esty shop in the next few weeks

  4. It is great stumbling on your post on “easy crochet scrubby pattern”. This is very interesting and relevant for me as I am looking for a way to revive my crochet skills. I learnt crochet patterns as a kid in elementary school, but have forgotten a lot of the stuff. I will be visiting your website for great ideas. I am especially interested in making shawls with different patterns, which I see could be possible with crocheting.
