Crocheted Kitchen Scrubbie

 I made a very interesting discovery today while visiting Hobby Lobby...

I set out to buy cotton yarn for a cute dish cloth project I saw recently but had a quick change of heart while in the store. 

As you scroll through this post please pay attention to the bold blue links for more Homeroad projects and the products I used for this project.

I found this great yarn by Yarn Bee called Scrub-ology Scrub It! 

It is textured yarn that actually feels like a scrubber.

You can find all kinds of similar yarns on Amazon. 

For sure this yarn must be made for just this project but since I've never heard of it before and I was thinking of making this from cotton yarn, I bought it to try.

I began by crocheting a chain stitch of 17 stitches with a size 8 crochet hook

I skipped the first stitch and began doing a single crochet stitch in the rest of the row.

I made one extra chain stitch at the end and worked my way back in the other direction. 

If you are a crocheter you'll know this simple stitch.

If you don't crochet but want to learn I suggest this video on YouTube because my directions are hard to explain in a post.

I went back and forth until the dish cloth was the size I wanted it to be. 

finished stitch

To finish it off I made another 10 chain stitches and tied it off to create a loop on the corner of the dish cloth.

The cloth can be used open or folded in half or quarters.

This yarn works great scrubbing dishes and pots and pans!

I made a smaller round one while I was at it by using the same single crochet with a chain stitch after each stitch going round and round.

Hang it by the loop to dry!

See that Kitty, she's always watching... keep an eye out in my posts for her!

I also think this would make a great exfoliator for the shower too so I'm making a few more!
