Crochet scrubbies are such fun and quick projects! I wanted a sturdy double layered one, similar to my Magic Lemon Peel Potholder, but with even more scrubby texture.
So, I used the same basic technique but with a fun scrubby yarn, instead of a fun stitch texture.
How much yarn do you need to crochet a scrubby?
For this crochet scrubby, I used around 20 yards of scrubby yarn. You can see the full list of materials listed just below.
What type of yarn is best for crochet scrubbies?
There are lots of fun scrubby yarns available! Red Heart Scrubby is a 100% polyester yarn, so while you have lots of texture for scrubbing, it doesn’t absorb as much water as regular dishcloth cotton.
That means this scrubby will dry just a bit quicker, although it’s not quite as soft. I would use it for dishes, not bath cloths, for example.
Ch- chain; Hdc- half double crochet; Sl- slip; St- stitch
Turning chains do NOT count as a stitch throughout.
One ball makes approx. 5 scrubbies.
Each of these scrubbies measure approximately 3″ square as written.
Can I adjust the size of my scrubby?
Yep! You sure can. To adjust size, simply chain to your desired diagonal length, & continue until the piece naturally folds in to make a square (or rectangle) that looks good to you.
