I crocheted this Kitchen Scrubbie with the very last strands of my Sugar ‘n Cream stash. I ran out of Hot Blue after making the body so, I had to dig around in my small scraps basket for a very short strand of Summer Splash cotton yarn. Fortunately, the variegated matched the blue body and the green color makes it looks like a flower stem.
The pattern calls for a size J hook but I went with a size I hook since my size J hook is MIA at the moment. (Angela, I loose them too!) The scrubbie itself consists of two layers chain loops and a slip stitch handle. The double layer construction may confuse beginning crocheters, but the idea is easy enough.
Here you can see the ‘inside’ of the scrubbie.
This kitchen scrubbie could double as a bath poof since the stitches aren’t too tight. It would probably dry just fine. If a reinforced handle were added it would also make a nice duster.
This was a nice distraction from my top secret Swap Swap Gals purses. I’ll get to that in a later post!
*That’s cool* a random fact
Scientists in Japan claim they have developed the first true blue roses by extracting the gene for blue pigment (delphinidin) from pansies.
