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!
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 I made the chains.
Then, I chained one, turned and put a sc in ea ch across. (12 total)
I repeated this until the piece measured 4 inches tall.You can either make two and connect them, but I chose to just fold it in half. When I ran almost out of netting and had about 3 inches left, I tied a square knot and kept all the knots on one side. Then, when I folded it in half, all the stray pieces were on the same side.
Starting on one side, I put 1 sc in each space across adding 3 sc to each corner. and went all the way around to the other side and then tied it off, tucking the last piece inside.
It's puffy and ready to scrub away. I plan to make more of these tweaking it as I go. I'm curious to know how long it will last instead of my usual round ones.
