After I made a set of Double Sided Scrubby Dishcloths (you can find the free pattern for those here) I decided to play around with my leftover yarn and work up something fun … this Flower Scrubby did the trick! Not only are they pretty but they also feature gentle petals for nonabrasive cleaning and a scrubby center for tougher jobs.
Flower Scrubby Dishcloth Crochet Pattern
Here’s what you will need:
- worsted weight cotton yarn in three colors (scrap amounts, less than 100 yds each)
- worsted weight scrubby yarn (less than 100 yds; shown here with Red Heat Scrubby in Zesty <-affiliate link)
- H hook
- yarn needle, scissors, and stitch marker (optional)
Size: approx. 7 in. × 7 in.
Note: Rounds 1 through 5 are worked in a spiral; do not join at the end of each round. Use a stitch marker to keep track of the beginning of each round, and move it up as you work.
With CA, make a magic ring (as an alternative to the magic ring, you can ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in furthest chain from hook to form a ring).
Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as st here and throughout), work 6 sc in ring — 6 sts.
Round 2: Work 2 sc in the back loop only of each st around — 12 sts.
Round 3: *Work 2 sc in the back loop only of the next st , 1 sc in the back loop only of the next st, rep from * around — 18 sts.
Round 4: *Work 2 sc in the back loop only of the next st , 1 sc in the back loop only of the next 2 sts, rep from * around — 24 sts.
Round 5: *Work 2 sc in the back loop only of the next st , 1 sc in the back loop only of the next 3 sts, rep from * around, fasten off CA — 30 sts.
Round 6: Join CB in the back loop of any stitch from Round 5. Ch 1 (does not count as st), *work 2 dc in the back loop of each of the next 3 sts, ch 2, Sl st in the back loops of the next 2 sts, ch 2, rep from * around, join in first st — 36 dc, 12 ch-2.
Round 7: Ch 1 (does not count as st), working through both loops of each st again, *work 1 hdc in next st, work 1 dc in next st, work 2 dc in each of the next 2 sts, work 1 dc in next st, 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in the tops of each of the next two ch-2s, rep from * around, join and fasten off — 80 sts.
Round 8: Join CC in the next stitch, ch 1 (does not count as st), *work 1 sc each of the next 8 sts, ch 1, Sl st between next 2 sc, ch 1, rep from * around, join in first st and fasten off — 72 sts.
Scrubby Center: Join scrubby yarn in first unworked loop from Round 1, work 1 sc in each unworked loop around through Row 5.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
