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 Dish 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.

Dish Scrubby 2 ways –

I worked up these dish scrubbies in 2 ways – 1 with just the scrub-ology yarn and 1 with a strand of scrub-ology yarn and a strand of regular cotton yarn. Both make great scrubbies!

The one on the left is made with just the scrub-ology yarn and the one on the right is made with both the scrub-ology yarn and cotton yarn.

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. Thanks so much for the free, cute pattern! Those on a limited income appreciate it 😊 I also appreciate the video. It helps me understand how the stitches should be chosen and worked into (visual learner here).
