    dish scrubberf

    Could someone please send me the directions for the scrubbers crocheted with nylon net I received one in a swap and she also sent me the directions and some net but I swear I haven't been able to duplicate her round one and I LOVE it. Maybe there's another pattern out there that would be easier for me to crochet. And, yes, I do crochet ... in fact, my most favorite is tiny thread crochet which is why I feel so stupid that I can't figure it out!!!! DUH!

    My DD has made me several of these. She is 18 and taught herself to knit and crochet via You tube. I am pretty sure she found the tutorial to make the scrubbies on YouTube. We bought yardage of tulle at Walmart and I cut it into 1 inch to 1.5 inch strips. She then used the strips at yarn and crocheted them into scrubbies. I am not sure which tutorials she used, but YouTube has lots.

    Here are a couple YouTube tutorials:.

    My neighbor made me one. It is great. Her comment was however that there are different weights of nylon net and some work better than others. I wish I could remember if she said the flimsy or stiffer was the better to use. I am away now and so can't ask her. Maybe someone else can chime in on what weight netting is best.

    I was told to use the cheapest, scratchiest nylon net I could find (Walmart). Made a few (I'm not great at crocheting),
    then someone showed me a square one. You sc a rectangle, fold it in half, and sc around it, adding a bit of leftover netting before closing it up to make it "puffy". It looks something like a Brillo pad.

    I have made literally hundreds of scrubbies! Can't keep them on hand. I prefer the stiffer the net the better. I have had requests from all over WI even had one from Alaska. I taught a class on scrubbies at a craft fair. Found that even with easy pattern it somehow is difficult for some to understand since they work exclusively with either yarn or crochet thread. I would be happy to share my pattern with you. The most difficult part is preparing the net to use. pm me if you are interested. Sharon

    I make dish scrubbers all the time. Here's my pattern. Chain 5, join to make a circle. Chain 3, then 2 DC in same stitch. 3 DC in each stitch around the circle, join. Chain 3, then 1 DC in same stitch. 2 DC in each stitch around the circle, join. Cut yarn and tuck in the tails! (Weave in the end of the yarn.) This makes a nice ruffly scrubber. If you don't want it as full, just do less DC to make it flatter.
