Crochet Scrubbie Free Pattern (Unroll to Clean)

Share the Love!

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

 

Crochet Scrubbie Pattern

 

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.

 

DIY crochet scrubbie

 

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 Scrubbie

 

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 Scrubbie into Shape

Roll the scrubbie 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 scrubbie, just unroll, wash, and hang dry.

 

 

Enjoy your new scrubbie!

    I think you meant to include the Ch6 with the * in front of it for the repeat. Just checking.

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I just corrected it. I missed a ch-5 in the repeat.

    Thank you for sharing. It was quick, easy, and fun to make. I used RH Scrubby Cotton instead of 100% cotton.

      That has already been corrected. It is ch-5 and not ch-6.

    I’m having a problem in the beginning where you slip stitch the 3 chains. I’m not sure I’m doing it correctly. It doesn’t look right.

    After I slip stitch up the 3 chains, do I sc in the ch 5 loop? Or, in the next chain 5 loop?

    Thank you so much for sharing ❤️!!

    do you prefer cotton to the plastic scrubby yarn?

      I think a scrubby yarn would be great. I just couldn’t get my hands on one with all the shutdown and stuff going on.

    Thanks for sharing this! I have several yards of the nylon mesh (kinda like tule but bigger holes). Could I cut it in about 1 inch strips, zigzag the strips together, & use that to make these? I’m just trying to use something I already have. I’ve never crocheted with anything like this before.

      Absolutely! I think it will work great.
