Simple Scrubby Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

This scrubby dishcloth crochet pattern features a very simple stitch, which makes this a whiz to whip up. I used two colors for a delightful scrubber that you won’t want to hide when your guests arrive.

A couple of other dishcloths worked up in a scrubby yarn are the Granny’s Holiday Scrubby Dishcloth Pattern and the V-Stitch Scrubby Yarn Dishcloth.

Disclaimer: Although this yarn was given to me, I have not been compensated to review this yarn. All opinions in this post are my own.

I found this yarn so easy to fall in love with. Due to the nature of the yarn, it’s a bit more difficult to work with, but I love the final texture in the fabric. And I really love it for scrubbing dishes, pots and pans. The yarn is 100% polyester, which means it’s non-absorbent; so you can’t use it to wipe down the kitchen counters. However, it dries fast and is a must-have for the kitchen sink.

This is my first time trying this yarn out, so am not sure on the durability, but it does look like it’s going to last a good long time.

Although the yarn is perfect for dish scrubbers, I can also see this in pretty flower appliques, keychains and in other embellishments.

The scrubby yarn is not absorbent. Thus, if you’re looking to make this into a cloth that you can use around the home and bath, then simply choose your favorite dishcloth cotton yarn. Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and Lily Sugar N Cream are two of my favorites.

  1. Thanks for the pattern! I’ll have to check out the yarn as I’m always looking for something other than cotton to crochet dish cloths and wash cloths with.
