Popularity of Crochet Kitchen Scrubbies

Scrubbies are such fun and quick crochet projects!  And here may be a few reasons why –

  • Easy to Make and Sell at Markets and Craft Fairs –  I know when I have done markets in the past, these little scrubbies were a great thing to have to sell as they serve a good purpose and are an inexpensive item to add to your booth.  They are super quick and easy, they are even something that you can sit and crochet at your market when it seems slow.
  • Reusable – They are more economical than traditional scrubbers or a kitchen sponge because you can just throw them into the dishwasher to clean them and then reuse them for a long time instead of tossing them into the trash.
  • Uses Little Yarn – This is a great pattern for scrap yarn .  It takes such a small amount of yarn that usually leftover yarn from other projects is all you need to make them.
  • Saves Money – Aside from not using that much yarn, which alone makes them inexpensive to make, they will last for a really long time.
  • Yarn Variations – Different yarn brands have been expanding their scrubby yarn lines!  So we aren’t stuck with just having to use plain cotton yarn to make scrubbies with, we now have quite a few fun scrubby yarns.   

These Kitchen Scrubbies that are crocheted with the thermal stitch, are a very popular pattern on my blog ever since I created them a couple years ago.

Yarn I Used

Skein of Lion Brand Stitch Soak Scrub Yarn

I chose a special scrubbie yarn called Lion Brand ‘Stitch, Soak, Scrub’ yarn to make these crochet dish scrubbies with.  It is a 100% nylon yarn that has a super scrubby texture and is great for scrubbing pots and pans.

This yarn comes in many different bright colors that will make for some colorful crochet dish scrubbers.  This particular yarn actually comes in over 18 different color choices!  So there is definitely a color to match any style or personality of kitchen.

They are the perfect addition to your kitchen and will look much better on your kitchen sink than those typical, old sponges that you normally use.  Not to mention that they are easier to keep clean too!

To make this a really thick crochet scrubbie, I made 2 separate pieces and crocheted them together using the crab stitch border.  I also used a hook size H / 5.00mm to make this dish scrubber pattern.

This is a project that you most definitely do NOT want to use acrylic yarn for.  Even if you want to mix in a cotton yarn for these crochet scrubbies, that would work.  Like using a strand of cotton yarn along with a strand of scrubby yarn.

ch 1, work a single crochet stitch in each stitch BUT you will go in reverse (to the right) instead of to the left.  Make sure that you go through both set of loops on each circle

Slip stitch into the the beginning first chain.

If you don’t want to do the reverse single crochet around, I personally like the edge that it gives these scrubbies, you could easily just chain 1 and work regular single crochet around the edges instead.

Cut yarn and weave in all ends.
