Step 3: Moving into the main body

At this point, we have completed one end of the sweeper pad. We now need to get the full length and width into play. The reason we left the long tail of yarn at the beginning will start to become evident now, since we don't want to have to add tie-on pieces later if we don't have to. So when you have about four inches of knitting done, and the long tail that we left at the beginning will be to your right when we start the next row, start casting on more stitches. You will want a total of 42 stitches, so the 14 that we started with, plus casting on another 28 will give us 42 stitches.
<p>I was so excited about finding this pattern...I love reusing thing and not buying refills and most of all excited about saving money. However I found one problem witth the pattern. With the new swiffer the fluid squirts from two openings on the front of the head of the mop. ...and now, those openings are covered by the mop pad. :( Any solutions?</p>
I have the plain Swiffer that doesn't squirt, so I really didn't account for that, but maybe what you could do is measure where the nozzles are for the cleaning fluid, and knit in a button hole at that location.
Yes I had considered doing that. I will have to make another one and use this one as a model to mark exactly where the holes need to be.<br>
I love this! Great idea!
This is very clever. I actually have a hand swiffer that needs a pad. What a great idea; I love that you made it one piece, too.
This is a fantastic alternative to the sewn ones! Great pictures too!
