Crochet Scrubbie Free Pattern (Unroll to Clean)

Share the Love!

Original crochet scrubby pattern – once you do the dishes, unroll the scrubby, wash, and hang it to dry.


 Crochet Scrubbie Pattern finished and shown rolled and unrolled


I always use plastic kitchen scrubbies for my non-stick dishes. After a few uses, they start to unravel and then I unroll to clean them and roll them back when dry. That gave me the idea to design this crochet scrubbie free pattern.

I experimented with a mesh stitch since the plastic scrubbie was made from a mesh and it turned out great. It was so much fun to roll and unroll these crochet dish scrubbies that my daughter and husband couldn’t keep their hands off them, lol!


Crochet Kitchen Scrubbies in 4 colors


These crochet kitchen scrubbies don’t just look cute but are also very practical. The crochet mesh stitch gives it enough roughness to clean your dishes and once you are done with your cleaning, you can unroll, wash, and dry them easily.


These are the best DIY crochet scrubbies you can make for your kitchen.

Ch 28, without twisting the chain, sl st to the first ch to form a ring. 


Round 1: Ch 6 ( the first ch counts as a sc),  sk 3 chs, 1 sc in next, *( ch 5, sk 3 chs, 1 sc in next), repeat from * to last 3 chs, ch 5, sl st to beginning ch-1. Do not turn.  —7 chain loops


Pattern Notes

1. In the next round, when it says to sc into the next chain loop, you don’t have to work into the ch but into space under the ch-5 loop.


2. When measuring your tube, do not stretch it. Just lay it flat, smooth it out with your palm, and then take the measurement.


Round 2 to End: Sl st into the next 3 chains, *(ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-5 loop), keep repeating from * in a spiral until your mesh tube is around 11-1/2 inches long.


Note: In the last round, we will try to narrow the tube so we can neatly tuck in the last part after rolling.


Last Round: *(1 sc in the next loop directly without chaining, ch 4, sc in next loop), repeat from * 2 more times, sl st into first sc, fasten off.



 Finishing the Crochet Scrubbie

You will have 2 tails to weave in. For the beginning tail on the foundation chain side, weave it in along the sl sts since that is where you have enough crochet fabric to hide your tail.


For the last tail left, weave it in behind the 2 sc and sl st at the base of the tail, go down a ch-5 loop, and come back up into the sc sts.


How to Roll the DIY Crochet Scrubby into Shape

Roll the scrubby inwards starting from the foundation chain side. Once you reach the other end, just tuck in the narrow part. Watch the video below.



When you want to clean the kitchen scrubby, just unroll, wash, and hang dry.

Enjoy your new scrubbies.

Awesome pattern!! These are so handy. I used Red Heart Scrubby yarn for mine, as that’s what I had on hand, but it still worked great, and I’m so excited to make many more! Thanks so much!!

I just made this using the Stitch Soak Scrub nylon yarn by Lion Brand. It turned out fantastic and was so easy to make. Thank you for sharing your pattern, it's the easiest one I've found.

Love it made my first one and can’t wait to make many different colors.

Thank you for sharing this pattern. I make lots of dish cloths but I usually knit them because the crocheted ones are a bit thicker and take long to dry. This is a wonderful idea! I used RH Scrubby yarn and I’m using some for gifts for family.

I made one of these & I really like it. Just one note, if you roll the tube out instead of in, it works the same & the small end of the tube ends up being on the inside so no need to tuck.

Genius! Why didn't I think of that? Thank you for sharing.
