Crocheted Tulle Dish Scrubbers

These dish scrubbers are quick and easy to make and are effective as a scrubber, and holds a lot of suddy soap. :-)

So, here's what you need:

- A roll of 6 inch tulle
- Crochet hook (I think I used an M size hook)
- Piece of string

And here's the pattern.

Ch 4 and join with a sl st.
ch 2, then 11 dc in circle.
join to ch 2 with sl st.
ch 2 then 1 dc for each dc in the inner circle.
join to ch 2 with sl st.
Finish off.

For the last step, take your piece of string (I put a small piece of tape on one end), and thread the string in and out of the outside set of dc's.
Cinch the string til the top (outside set of dc's) are gathered together.  Then tie the string together using a double knot (or maybe a triple).  Make sure it's tied securely.

That's it.  It's ready for dish washing.

I think this pattern can be changed as a body scrubber too, tho I haven't actually tried it.  All you need to do is use an elastic string to cinch the top.  Then you should be able to fit a bar of soap right inside.  :-)

Days like these I am humbled by your craftiness. I don't think I would ever look at a scrubby and think "Huh, I wonder if I could make one of those?" Very cool.

Did you cut the tulle into strips or leave it??! If you cut it, how wide?

Fe said...

I do not cut the tulle into strips. I just sorta bunch it together.
