Picture of Crocheted Scrubby
I love a good scrubby for scrubbing pots and pans and I just learned that more than one of my friends appreciate good scrubbies too.  So this last Christmas, more than one of my friends received my handmade scrubbies as a gift.  I have other friends who will be receiving some as birthday gifts.  They are easy, quick and inexpensive to make.  So here is how I crochet a scrubby.

Step 1:

Picture of
½  yard (.46m) of net fabric ( +/- $1.00 per yard (.92m))
Size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook
Cutting mat
Metal ruler
Rotary cutter

Step 2:

Picture of
Here is the net fabric.  It is bought by the yard (in the US) and is 72 inches (2 yards) wide.  I folded the net and placed it on the cutting mat so that the cut edge is even with the end of the markings on the mat.  I placed the metal ruler on the net, 2 inches (5 cm) from the end,

Step 3:

and used the rotary cutter to cut along that line.  I cut 9 – 2 inch wide x72 inch long strips of net.

Step 4:

Then I took one end of two pieces of net and made them even and then tied a slip knot, tying the two pieces together. 

Step 5:

Repeat with the other 7 pieces until you have all 9 pieces of net tied into one long piece of net.  This is the “yarn” for the scrubby. 

Step 6:

I learned quickly that is it much better to roll the net “yarn” into a little ball.  It makes everything neat and easy to work with.

Step 7:

Leaving a 3-4 inch (7.5-10cm) tail, chain 3 stitches,

Step 8:

then slip stitch the into the first chain making a small ring.

Step 9:

Sc8 into the center of the ring.  You will not be counting rows or rounds, what you will be counting is each section of net between each knot.  Also, as you reach each knot you will need to make sure each knot is on the inside of the scrubby. You have 9 sections and 8 knots.

I sent some of my friend's handmade scrubbies to Norway.

My Mother lives there, and she loved them

A friend of mine used these instructions to make one for me. I have been using it every day since and it still looks beautiful!
