Do you want to maybe make washing dishes more fun? I don’t know about you, but anything that I can crochet in bright colors puts a smile on my face. These colorful Kitchen Scrubbies will help make your kitchen a little brighter.

These are a quick and easy crochet project that you could whip up a half dozen of in no time flat.

About the Scrubby Yarn

I used Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee Scrub-Ology ‘Scrub it!’ yarn to make these kitchen scrubbies. It comes in many different bright and fun colors!

Yarn Bee Scrubology Yarn

It’s 100% nylon and is a #5 bulky yarn. It works up quickly and is easy to work with. Thankfully, it’s not too scratchy, so it doesn’t bother my hands when I crochet with it.

I was afraid that it might be too rough, but it’s not at all.

Besides, the way it’s made being a scrubby yarn, it has this little bit of shimmer to it that really adds to the finished look of the piece.

How to Crochet the Best Kitchen Scrubber Ever?

The secret to making the best kitchen scrubber that you can is to use a stitch that created a thick piece. That is why I used a special stitch called the Thermal Single Crochet to crochet these kitchen scrubbies.

It creates a very thick piece that makes it perfect for these scrubbers and also very durable!

Special Crochet Stitch

To make these kitchen scrubbies, I used a special stitch that is twice as thick as regular single crochet. It’s called the ‘Thermal Stitch.’

If you have never crocheted the Thermal Stitch, then you will probably want to learn how. I have a complete video, picture & written tutorial HERE

  1. I love the thermal stitch and have made a LOT of hotpads to sit hot dishes on with this stitch. I haven’t tried the Yarn Bee scrubology yarn yet though.Thank you for the great pattern and yarn suggestion

  2. Thank you for the fun and wonderful pattern. It was fun to learn a new stitch. I had a skein of that yarn and made five of them. I’m wondering how you kept one end of yours from curling. Whenever I single crochet, one end always curls up.

    Thank you,

    1. A couple of mine curled a little, but not very bad, lol. The looser you try to crochet, I think that helps. You might try going up a hook size too. I’m glad that you liked the pattern! Thank you!

  3. Just made my first one of these little scrubbies. It won’t be my last! It worked up in just a few minutes and is adorable! I can’t wait to try it our on the dishes! Thank you for the pattern!
