Loopy Mop Cover

An easy free crochet pattern for a loopy mop cover. The cover is crocheted by using the crochet loop stitch. It is fairly easy to crochet provided that you know how to do the loop stitch. It takes a bit of practice, but once you have the hang of it, it is quite easy.

The cover fits a bit loose on top in order for the mop to get through. However, it can easily be tucked into the slots to prevent it from sliding off the mop.

I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, a medium worsted weight cotton yarn. It is perfect for scrubbing because it is durable and absorbent.

  1. What would be the primary use of this cover? For dust (dry) or more for scrubbing (wet)? Thanks for the free pattern!!!

    1. You are welcome. :) You can use it either way, but I like to wet mine down and wring it out good before using it. For me, these do not replace a mop, but are a convenient way to clean when in a hurry and the floor isn’t too dirty. :)

  2. I am a little confused. On Rnd 1 after the last 3 sc in the last stitch you have 26 sc. Do you turn and work back on the stitches just made?
