My niece Katie shared some scrubbies with me that she made. I was hooked ( pun intended). She shared the pattern with me. If you are interested you can search for the pattern at Red Heart. It is a free download. It is a simple pattern if you can chain and do a double crochet you can do it!
I got some of my scrubby yarn at Ben Franklin, then I found some at Hobby Lobby, then at a Hometown Craft store…but you can order it online. Price per skein will be $4 something. Not sure how many I get out of a skein. The skeins are small.
There is even a sparkly holiday looking yarn…I am almost out of that one.
I use two different types of scrubby yarn…polyester or cotton. They both seem to work well. I throw mine into the washer with kitchen towels and then into the dryer. Some are not perfect because in this project I want no left over yarn…see that one red one… part red and part red and white.
I roll my skeins into balls as soon as I get them. I dislike yarn that tangles. This is a fun project for me to work on in the evenings when watching television as it doesn’t take much concentration. I can grab my basket with the balls and crochet right out of the basket and not chase the balls all over the room.
I have collected the netting from Orange and Halo bags for a long time…it is a someday project to make strips and sew the strips together to crochet scrubbies…someday.
I learned to knit as a teenager, my Aunt Marie taught me. I learned to crochet in 1979-1980 my friend Kathy taught me. Some place I have an old book one half is How to Crochet and the other is How to Knit. Before the internet where you can watch You Tubes about anything you want to learn…we had books…and friends who shared their talents.
