What Yarn to Use for Crochet Scrubbies
It is important to use cotton yarn for crochet scrubbies, dishcloths, washcloths, etc. The cotton material absorbs the water and is more durable when washing.
I recommend the WeCrochet/Knit Picks Dishie cotton yarn. It has that raw cotton feel like Lily Sugar and Cream but without the roughness. It also comes in several vibrant and muted colors that do not transfer onto the hands while crocheting. I have some washcloths made with this yarn and the color and material has still held up.
Multi-Use and Reusable
- General Cleaning
- Washing Dishes
- Face Washing
- Baby/Infant Washing
- Wiping Down Counters
- Dusting Window Sills/ Blinds
I love using these to wipe down my counters and sink in the kitchen. I originally made these scrubbies without a closed top – basically just a tube. I invite you to try out both versions (both are noted in the pattern below) because each has its benefits.
The mitt style with the closed top is great for washing dishes especially cups and mugs. The open style is great for general cleaning as you are able to rotate it to a clean side easily and have a better grip on the material.

Worsted weight cotton yarn ~50 yards per scrubbie
(We Crochet Dishie Cotton yarn Worsted Weight)
This project is made by crocheting a rectangle and then crocheting together the sides.
You can choose to enclose one side (making it a tube) OR enclose two sides (making it a mitt). I find both variations useful in cleaning as the tube allows more control and able to quickly rotate to a clean side. The mitt version (encloses the fingers) is great for cleaning bottoms of mugs/cups as well as dusting blinds.
Beginning chain does not count as a stitch.
To make the scrubby wider, add more rows.
To make the scrubby taller, add more chains to the first row in multiples of 2.
Dimensions: 3.5” x 4.5”
Abbreviations: (US terms)
Ch = chain, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet, st = stitch
Row 1: Ch 20, dc in 3rd ch from hook, sc in next ch, *dc in next ch, sc in next ch, repeat from * across, turn
Row 2: Ch 1, *dc in next st, sc in next st, repeat from * across
Repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 24 rows
DO NOT FASTEN OFF
Single crochet the last and first row together.
If you want the scrubbie to be a tube, you can fasten off and weave in ends now.
If you want the scrubbie enclosed completely around the fingers, make 3 single crochets at the end of the row and continue to single crochet together the next side. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Turn inside out so the seam is on the inside.
