Criss-Cross Reversable Mop Cover

Here is a quick and easy criss-cross reversible crochet mop cover to wash or dust your floors. It’s perfect if you have pets and need to stay on top of the pet hairs, or if you just like to keep your floors super clean from dust buildup.

I love these covers to do a quick clean in the kitchen and bathroom to keep them presentable. Another awesome use is for cleaning walls and ceilings!

What I love about this crochet swiffer cover is that it stays on even when it is wet! And it works so much better than those disposable covers that you can buy. Not only that, it is better for the environment because you can keep reusing it.

Finished Size: This cover fits a 10″ by 4″ mop, but it can easily be increased to fit any size by increasing the number of chains.

Yarn: A dishcloth cotton is your best bet when it comes to making a mop cover that is not only effective at scrubbing, but also durable! I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, but any similar dishcloth cotton will work.

Stitch Pattern: For this mop cover I used the half double crochet cross stitch. It is not only a pretty texture but also the perfect texture for scrubbing and trapping dirt from your floors.

The pattern is started with a long chain. Then for the first round, you crochet on both sides of the chains to begin the shape of a rectangle.

Continue to work in rounds until you have the size you need.

Lastly, the edging is worked by decreasing the number of stitches so that it fits snug over the swiffer.

Special Stitch Instructions


    • If you are adjusting the pattern in size, make sure to make your chains longer than what you need the finished item to be as the crossed hdc's will shrink the work. Please refer to the gauge and make adjustments accordingly.


    • Ch 35,
    • Row 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from hook, *sk next ch, hdc in next ch, hdc in skipped ch; rep from * across to last ch, hdc in last ch. (34 sts) Turn.
    • Row 2: Working in fls only, ch 1, sc in first st and in each st across. (34 sts) Turn.
    • Row 3: Working in both lps, ch 1, hdc in first st, *sk next st, hdc in next st, hdc in skipped st; rep from * across to last st, hdc in last st. Turn.
    • Rows 4-9: Rep rows 2 & 3. Do not FO, continue with edging.
    • Edging: Both sides of the fabric look good (in my eyes anyway). So decide which side you want as the Right Side. Then work the edging with Your Right Side facing.
    • Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc around with 1 sc in each st and 12 sc along each side; join with sl st in first sc. NOTE: Do not increase at corners. (92 sts)
    • Rnds 2-3: Ch 1, sc in each st around; join with sl st in first sc. (92 sts)
    • Rnds 4-7: Ch 1, sc around working 1 sc3tog in each corner. Join with sl st in first sc. (Note: My rounds joined at the center stitch in corner, so I slip stitched into next st, and single crocheted into next. Then I finished the round with a sc3tog over the last st and the first 2 sts that I skipped at beginning.) FO at last rnd. (60 sts)
