Too Cute Washcloth and Scrubby All-In-One

Crochet Scrubby - Free Pattern

Crocheted washcloths are a timeless piece. 

I remember my grandmother making washcloths by the dozen. As soon as she would get one made, someone would come along and scoop it up. 

I myself, have made many different washcloths and scrubbies and have never been left with one to spare. 

I was wandering through the yarn isles at Michaels the other day (always a dangerous idea), when I spotted scrubby yarn.

Love this Scrubby Yarn



I stopped dead in my tracks and did a double take. WHAT?! Scrubby yarn! YES PLEASE!


I had no idea what I was going to do with the scrubby yarn, but I NEEDED it! 

Later that evening, I was trying to decide what kind of scrubby I wanted to make with my new scrubby yarn.

 I like using scrubbies for tough to wash dishes and washcloths for the rest. Too bad I couldn't get an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo...…..Wait  a minute, I'm the maker, I can make an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo. 



For my all-in-one washcloth and scrubby design I wanted it to look cute as well as functional. So I decided on flowers. The petals of the flowers have an added bonus of being used to get into the hard to wash spaces.

I absolutely love the way that these turned out and have been using mine everyday.

Free Pattern for Too Cute All-In-One Washcloth and Scrubby

START with SCRUBBY yarn **Note for the scrubby yarn** working with this yarn is a little hard to see the stitches sometimes so I always use a stitch marker at the beginning of the round so I know where to join. 

Begin with a MR
Round 1: DC times 10 into MR and pull tight to form a circle. Join with a sl st. (10 sts)
Round 2: Ch 2, (2 DC) into each stitch all the way around. Join with a sl st. (20 sts)
Round 3: Ch 2 *2 DC, 1 DC* repeat from between the * all the way around. Join with a sl st (30 sts) 
Cut yarn, leaving a small tail for weaving into your work. 

CHANGE to Cotton Yarn

Begin with a MR
Round 1: DC times 10 into MR and pull tight to form a circle. Join with a sl st. (10 sts)
Round 2: Ch 2, (2 DC) into each stitch all the way around. Join with a sl st. (20 sts)
Round 3: Ch 2 *2 DC, 1 DC* repeat from between the * all the way around. Join with a sl st (30 sts)
Round 4: Ch 1, here you will want to get the scrubby circle that you just created to join to the cotton circle. Lining up the stitches as you go work through both circles in  this pattern *2sc, 1sc, 1sc* repeat from between the * until  the end of the round. Join with a sl st. (40 sts) 
Round 5: *skip one stitch, Hdc, Hdc, DC, DC, Hdc, Hdc, skip one stitch, sl st into next stitch* repeat form between the * until the end of round ending at a sl st. 
Cut yarn and weave in ends.

And there you have it. Your very own all-in-one washcloth and scrubby. 

Sunflower Variation

To create the sunflower you will need Red Heart Scrubby ALMOND yarn and Bernat cotton PALE YELLOW yarn. 

Follow the pattern above until Round 5. For the last round you will *skip one stitch, Hdc, DC, Tr (picot) DC, Hdc, skip one stitch. sl st into the next * repeat from between the * until the end of the round ending with a sl st. 

The sunflower is my personal favorite. But I love them all. Hope you do too! 

Happy Scrubbing Everyone!

Crochet Chair Socks Free Pattern

How to Crochet Chair Socks, Free Pattern I am excited and a little nervous to be writing this blog post. I have wanted to blog and share my patterns and newly learned knowledge for crocheting for the longest time now,but the idea was kind of overwhelming for me. Where do I start? What do I write about? Will people like it? Will it be useful if there is already information exactly like it on the world wide web?

Ugh! So much overthinking!

No more overthinking for this gal.....okay I will probably still think about it way to much and for the first few posts I will probably write something and delete it 100 times, but at least I am doing it.

I will be posting about current projects, interesting information that I have gathered through various sources and products that I have tried and liked or not liked.

One of the many projects that I currently have on the go is......you guessed it. Chair Socks. A friend messaged me a picture of some chair socks that her cousin saw and liked and asked i…

Easy and Quick Mother's Day Gift

Easy 20 minute Mother's Day Gift!



Oh and did I mention it is also inexpensive.

Time is of the essence in my household. I just recently relocated and have spent the last month moving, unpacking and getting my family settled into their new surroundings.

With Mother's Day just around the corner I needed a super quick and easy idea that didn't break the bank. For one gift I made a jute owl basket and filled it with dishcloths and pot scrubbers.



I wanted to add a little something more. So I decided to make a jute pot holder with the left over jute twine I had purchased from the local dollar store.

Here is what I came up with;
