How to Make Crocheted Scrubbies With Yarn & Nylon Combined

Save

Crafters are making a handy kind of dish or body scrubber, called scrubbies, using yarn and nylon netting, which they then give as gifts, sell to others or use in their own homes. Instead of buying dishcloths and scrubbers, make your own scrubbies. If you crochet, you can easily combine yarn and nylon netting to make a supply of scrubbies.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 yard nylon netting
  • Butterfly clips
  • Scissors
  • 1 ball worsted-weight yarn
  • Crochet hooks, size G and K
  • Fold the netting lengthwise until you have a narrow length of material. Clip the netting, using your butterfly clips. Space the clips about three inches apart, then cut the folded netting so each piece is two and 1/2 inches wide. Roll each piece of netting into a ball. Then, as you are ready to add a new ball, tie the end of the new ball to the end you have crocheted.

  • Put one ball of the netting you cut earlier together with your yarn, matching the ends.

  • Crochet a foundation chain of 15 chain stitches, using your K crochet hook. The 15th chain is your turning chain. Turn your work.

  • Make one chain stitch and begin crocheting one single crochet (SC), starting with the second chain from your hook. Make one SC into each chain stitch to the end of the row for row 1. Crochet one turning chain and turn your work.

  • Repeat row 1, adding new nylon netting strips as you use up a strip. One scrubbie should take four strips of nylon netting.

  • Tuck in the loose end of the final strip using your G crochet hook after fastening off the last netting strip.
