Material: Bernat Handicrafter, 100% Cotton (about 16oz)
Hook size: G/6-4.25mm
Instructions are given for a head that measures 4″ wide, 11″ long, and 1″ high. You can easily make it wider or narrower by increasing or decreasing the beginning ch, and longer or shorter by more or fewer repeats of row 2.
To make the esc: Insert hook in stitch indicated, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through one loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.
Row 1: Esc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, esc in each st across.
Rows 3-52: Repeat row 2 until you have reached a desired length. Fasten off.
To sew the sides together:
Starting at one end, count in 10 rows and fold between rows 10 and 11. With a yarn needle and same yarn sew both sides together. Repeat this process on other end and weave in all loose ends. Note: You can adjust where you fold as needed. You want the cover to fit snug on the mop with enough room for it to slip on and off.
