Make this crochet mop cover to the size that you need, whether it be a small mop as shown, or a wide mop. The diy mop cover is perfect for collecting dust off of staircases and the floor. It is meant for gentle cleaning and daily dusting.
If you have pets, it is great for collecting pet hair so they don’t end up in your sinuses.
What I like best about this mop cover is that it washes easily and makes cleaning the floors a blast!
I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton yarn. It is not only durable and suitable for scrubbing, but it is also economical. It is perfect for a mop cover like this.
Use up any leftovers because in a mop cover, it doesn’t really matter the colors! So go on and clean out your cotton yarn drawer for a bright and cheerful mop cover!
The stitch pattern is easy and mindless with only the extended single crochet. Not only is it easy to work with, but it gives you a simple, yet nice texture on the fabric.
Plus, the stitch is easy for incorporating lots of colors if you choose to do so. Whether you want to change after each row, add a few stripes or work it up in blocks, this stitch makes it super easy to customize.

To sew the sides together:
