There are many ways to make these type of scrubbers with netting material. I've read through a lot of patterns and they all seem nice but so complicated. I like easy patterns! This is how I do it:
1 yard netting (or more)
Size K crochet hook
Here's the pattern:
It takes 7 strips to make one scrubber.
First Strip- Chain 3. Then, 5 sc in the third chain from the hook (which will be the first chain). Then, continue around in spiral fashion by putting 2 single crochets in each chain. Continue the same with the second strip.
Next four strips, one sc around.
Last strip, one sc in every other chain. If when you go around it doesn…
A friend of mine showed me some rugs she had woven with a loom and recycled t-shirts. I loved the idea, but don't have room to use a loom in the camper so I thought I'd crochet one instead. I had originally hoped to knit one but found my hands aching too much after a few rows.
Here's what you need:
Size Q crochet hook
7-10 shirts depending on size. (might need more depending on size)
Pattern of choice or this leaflet. (which is what I used)
A good pair of fabric cutting scissors
First, you need to prepare your material into "yarn". You do this by cutting your shirts into strips. I found several methods for cutting t-shirts and joining the ends. Which I will talk about here. But, do also check out this method, which makes one continuous strip of material.
You do this by first laying the t-shirt out folded in half like this. If you notice, I've already cut the hem off. I save them in case I might need just a little bit more material. And if I do, I simply cu…
I bought some red netting the other day to try making a different crocheted pot scrubber. I was talking to a friend of mine about a scrubber I had made her before I learned to do the kind that I posted the pattern for. I don't really remember how I made it, but I'm pretty sure I just made it like my facial scrubbers. I was shocked to learn that it's still going strong after all this time. I think it's been almost a year that it's still scrubbing away!
The difference is that I didn't connect the strips the same way. I just used a square knot and stuffed the netting inside. Honestly, I expected over time for the netting to fall out of the holes, but she said it does not do that!
I decided to try making a rectangle scrubber the other day.
To make this scrubber, I took my crochet hook size "K" and chained 12 stitches.
It measured 5 inches long, so if it takes you more or less chains to get 5 inches, that's fine. I tried not to pull too tightly when …
