Suzie's Stuff Scrubbie
At one of the bazaars, I was selling at this year, I saw a scrubbie made holding netting and worsted weight cotton yarn together. Darn, I didn’t get a good look. But it wasn’t hard to figure one out. I knit a couple dishcloths as a Christmas gift and will include the scrubbies in the package. Thought I’d share the idea with y’all for a last minute gift.
Suzie’s Stuff Scrubbie
Worsted weight cotton yarn, about 6 yards
Nylon netting, cut into 2 inch strips, about 6 yards (3 widths of 72 inch netting)
Size N crochet hook
Needle with large eye for weaving in ends
Scrubbie is worked throughout holding cotton yarn and netting together, enclosing the cotton in the net by folding around.
Ch 4, join into a ring by slipstitching in first ch.
Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), working over beginning tails, 11 dc in ring. Join in top of ch 3 with slipstitch. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in same stitch as joining. 2 hdc in each stitch around. Hdc in slipstitch of the previous round. Join with slipstitch in top of ch 2. (25 hdc)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
