Here is my first tutorial.
These amazing little scrubbies are the reason I taught myself to crochet, that and to pass the hours, days and months of endless morning sickness!!!
I start by cutting nylon netting into 1-1/2 to 2 inch strips, depending on the stiffness of the netting I'm using, stiffer = thinner strips. I bag all the strips and tie them together as I go.
I usually use an I hook, but for the sake of the pics used a K hook for this tutorial.
Here's the pattern...
Round 1) Join to make a circle, chain 2, 11 dc in circle, join - 12 sts
Round 2) ch 2, dc in same dc, 2 dc in each dc, join- 24 sts
Round 3) ch 2, dc in same dc, 2 dc in each dc, join - 48 sts
Round 4) ch 1, sc in each dc
Make sure all the knots from where you joined the pieces together are facing you the right side will be the inside of the scrubby.
Now start decreasing (you will now be working on the backside of the scrubby) by *sc in the next 2 sc, skip one, sc in next, skip one, repeat from *until you have closed it up, tie it off and stuff the left over inside.
Make sure if you are stuffing your scrubby you do it before you close it up. I stuff mine with the leftover pieces of netting.
Of course if you don't crochet you can always order these. The scrubbies are $3 ea. or 2/$5 and the dishcloth/scrubby sets are $8.
