Dish Scrubby’s Gift Set

You know when you have those moments when your like “wow! I am such a boring adult!” Ya know, when you get excited over a new vacuum or Costco samples on Saturdays! I had one of those moments with these dish scrubbies… a strange grown up satisfaction. I can not stress enough how awesome these are, waaaaay better than any store bought one that falls apart after a few uses. Throw them in the wash and they are as good as new, over and over and over again!

Not only are they totally awesome, it is super easy to turn them into a super cute gift for that difficult to buy for person, think teachers, neighbours or colleagues and I’m sure would sell great at Holiday Markets! Everyone does dishes, right?!!!

I have three patterns for different sizes of scrubby’s and a dish cloth. I used Red Heart Scrubby Yarn and 2 kinds of cotton had on hand, any 100% cotton yarn will work. All of the patterns are different combinations of the 3 yarns (Except the dish cloth it is just one strand of yarn). The gauge of the yarn varies slightly to make different size scrubby’s. Stack them largest to smallest and add a pretty bow, it looks more like a decoration than cleaning supplies!

Note: Ch 3 at the start of each round counts as a stitch, unless specified.

I used a 7 mm hook for the double strands and a 4.5 mm hook for the dish cloth. I find tight stitches tend to work better.
