FREE Mop Cover Crochet Pattern
This crochet mop cover fits over a 10 by 4 inch mop. However, there is no stitch multiple in the pattern, which means you can basically crochet this to any size that you need.
It makes for a lovely duster for hardwood and laminate floors. The puff stitches are excellent trappers to catch dirt and hair whether it’s wet or dry. For bathroom and kitchen floors, I’d say to wet it down to ensure you get all the germs and tough spots.
Plus, it’s washable, economical, and durable! So you can’t go wrong with this one.
