Thank you to Red Heart for providing the yarn for this sample! 

Not long ago, a really fun box of yarn from Red Heart landed on my doorstep. Included inside were two skeins of “Scrubby“, a yarn I’d seen online, but never in person. I couldn’t wait to get started playing with it! I came up with this cute little dish scrubby pattern in the shape of the wildflower that’s been so popular on the blog.

About the Yarn

Red Heart Scrubby is a #4 worsted weight, extremely textured polyester yarn. Thanks to that texture, it gets the gunk off your dishes with ease, and the polyester dries quicker than cotton. If you aren’t a fan of cotton crocheted dishcloths, this might be the perfect alternative!

Because of the texture, Scrubby isn’t as easy to crochet with as a typical worsted weight yarn. I was a little intimidated at first, but once I got going with it, I was fine. It takes a little concentration (and a lot of bright light!), but as long as you understand the different parts of a stitch and what to look for, you’ll get the hang of crocheting with Scrubby!

Hook: I (5.50mm)
Yarn: Red Heart Scrubby in two colors (< one ball of each). I used Grape (Color "A") and Jelly (Color "B").
Difficulty: Easyish (the yarn is a bit tricky at first!)
Gauge: Unimportant
Finished Size: Sample is 5.5" wide

Notes:


  • This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
  • Rounds will alternate between increase rounds and petals. Increase rounds will be called “round 1, 2, 3” etc, and petal rounds will be referred to as “1st round of petals, 2nd round of petals,” etc. Because ch petal round shares its space with the increase round below it, they are not counted as part of the pattern’s total rounds.
  • CH1 on the increase rounds does not count as a stitch.
  • Be mindful that the pattern alternates in calling for FLO (Front Loops Only) and BLO (Back Loops Only).
  • This pattern is based off of my Neverending Wildflower. If you haven't done this pattern before, it might be a good idea to try the pattern below with regular yarn before attempting it with Scrubby. If you need a little extra help, give this pattern a try (it has photo tutorials).

    That is so cute!!

    I would think you could also use this yarn with cotton yarn, holding the two strands together and crocheting a dish scrubbie.

    • Becky May 17, 2016, 6:22 pm

      The only problem I have found adding cotton yarn to the scrubby strand is that it takes to long to dry after use. Then you get the really stinky scrubby! Just my experience.
