The Scrubbly Bubbly Dish Scrubber

Inspiration + Design

The inspiration for this design is pretty simple really, I needed a new dish scrubber! I have used the typical round scrubbers for so long, but I wanted a new design. I have been recently obsessed with bobble stitches so I hope you are prepared! The bobble stitch is super easy, so don’t worry, I will walk you through it.

Yarn + Hook

I used Yarnspiration’s Red Heart Scrubby yarn for this pattern. I highly recommend this yarn for scrubbies as it works wonders! I have tried the cotton version, but I was not a fan. I personally like the polyester version because it does not hold water as long, which in return leaves for no stinky smelling dish scrub.

I used Furl’s Crochet Odyssey Hook. I highly recommend purchasing one yourself. They are a little more expensive, but I promise it is worth it. Before I started using Furl’s Crochet hooks, I was experiencing frequent tension in my hands, wrists, and forearms. As soon as I started working with my first Odyssey Hook, I immediately felt relief from this tension. I also noticed that my stitches became a lot cleaner and tighter as well! If you are like me, a self-taught crocheter, you know this is huge because we did not have anyone there to tell us to tighten our grip to clean up our stitches. Needless to say, I am hooked on Furl’s Crochet now.

  1. When you say it lasts for 3-6 months – does it simply fall apart after that time?

    How often do you wash it?

    Thanks!

    1. HI Kim,

      I apologize for the delayed response. It doesn’t fall apart, per say, mine have ripped though over time creating a hole. Honestly, I’ve pushed mine for longer than that with holes in, as long as it wasn’t like a massive hole then I could still use it. I like to wash mine once a week. I would recommend using a laundry wash bag if you throw it in the washing machine. It really depends on how rough you are on them is how long they will last. I’ve had customers who it never rips for them, so it really depends. I hope this helps answer your question. Please let me know if you have any other questions and I hope you enjoy the pattern.

      Thank you,
      Ashley
