FREE and EASY Crochet Dish Scrubby Cloth Pattern

When it comes to dish washing, I am very happy to say that I own & use a dishwasher...however, there are times when I need to hand wash something and need a smaller cloth to get into all of the tiny places...such as a canning jar or drinking glass and full-size dishcloths are too big or too thick.

I solve that problem by crocheting myself a few small dish scrubbies out of cotton yarn. Here is how you can make one using a simple single crochet stitch.

Scraps of cotton yarn (I use Sugar and Cream cotton yarns)
Size D or F crochet hook

Chain 2 and then SC (single crochet) in second chain from your hook and in each chain across. Once you reach the end, chain 1 and turn. You will want to SC (single crochet) across the entire row, chain 1 and turn again. Repeat this until you have 10 rows. Fasten Off, weave in your ends.

This little cotton scrubby is the perfect size for when you need to hand wash drinking glasses, canning jars or just to get into tight little spaces to get all of your food particles out of them. They are machine wash & dry.

Hi Shelly:
I would love to make one of your scrubbies. You said to chain 2 and single crochet to the end of the row. Do you cast on more than 2 stitches? Thank you for your reply.
