This scrubby yarn crochet pattern is for an easy v-stitch scrubby dishcloth. It is worked in the round with two colors for a nice effect. But you can do it in a solid color, or mix it up with a dishcloth cotton if you like.
This is a scrubber, as the yarn used is non-absorbent. However, it’s a nice addition to have close to your sink to help tackle all the pots and pans. It also makes for a nice addition to any gift basket. Another bonus of this cloth is that you don’t need much of the scrubby yarn, which makes it a nice stashbuster as well.
The Stitch Pattern
For this dishcloth I chose to work with the V-stitch using the double crochet, chain one and another double crochet. It works well with the yarn in terms of making this a quick and easy scrubber to work up for your kitchen.
The dishcloth is worked in the round, starting at the middle and increasing in each round.
The Scrubby Yarn was provided by Red Heart. Their yarns and patterns are now available at the Yarnspirations website. It is a medium #4 polyester yarn that is perfect for all your scrubbing needs.
The scrubby yarn makes it a bit harder to see the stitches. But the V-Stitch makes it easy to throw the hook into a space.
And, if you like, you can also crochet this in a regular dishcloth yarn as well. Or mix it up to get the best of both worlds in terms of absorbency and scrubbing action.
