Easy Crochet Dish Scrubby

Materials Needed:

  1. Worsted weight cotton yarn in your desired color.
  2. Crochet hook, size H/8 (5.0 mm).
  3. Scissors.
  4. Yarn needle.


  • Ch: Chain
  • Sc: Single Crochet
  • Inc: Increase (2 single crochets in the same stitch)
  • Sl st: Slip Stitch


Step 1: Begin by making a slip knot and chaining 4.

Step 2: In the second chain from your hook, work 2 single crochet stitches.

Step 3: Work 2 single crochet stitches in the next chain stitch. You should now have 4 single crochet stitches in total.

Step 4: Chain 1 and turn your work.

Step 5: In the first stitch, work 1 single crochet. In the next stitch, work 2 single crochet stitches. In the next stitch, work 1 single crochet. In the last stitch of this row, work 2 single crochet stitches.

Step 6: Chain 1 and turn your work.

Step 7: Repeat Step 5 and Step 6 until your scrubby is square in shape (approximately 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches). This will create a gradual increase in stitches and form a nice textured surface for scrubbing.

Step 8: Once your scrubby is the desired size, fasten off the yarn, leaving a long tail.

Step 9: Fold your scrubby in half diagonally to form a triangle.

Step 10: Use the long tail of yarn and a yarn needle to sew the two edges of the triangle together. Make sure to sew through both layers of stitches to create a sturdy seam.

Step 11: After sewing the edges together, fasten off the yarn and weave in any loose ends.

Step 12: Your crochet dish scrubby is now ready to use! Simply wet it before use and scrub your dishes clean.

Feel free to adjust the size of the scrubby by adding more rows if you want a larger size. You can also experiment with different colors of yarn to make it more personalized.

Remember, this pattern is just a guide. Feel free to get creative and make modifications as you like. Happy crocheting!
