Crochet nylon net scrubbies are quick, easy, and fun to make. They are useful in the kitchen for the crafter and make great gifts and craft sale items. This is a guide about making crochet nylon net scrubbies.
If you enjoy crocheting, having comfortable crochet hooks that don't cause hand fatigue are a must have. These Clover crochet hooks have comfortable ergonomic handles and an ideal hook shape.
When I try to crochet a pot scrubber with nylon netting it comes out with a totally frayed look from the cut edges. The stitches are not distinct so it is difficult to find the hole for the next stitch. I am looking at a scrubber that I purchased and the stitches are very obvious and it has a very neat look. What am I not doing wrong?

You might try a larger hook to start the first one, till you get the hang of it. I found several patterns on the internet and a youtube video of how to do it. You might be cutting the nylon strip too small, or the netting is on the larger size which might fray on the edges more. I have found crocheting with cotton yarn helps to keep the nylon from fraying too. I used red netting and tan cotton yarn. Hope this helps.
What size do you cut the strips to crochet pot scrubbers?

Does anyone have a pattern for the nylon scrubbies that are made of two crocheted circles and then they are crocheted together? A friend bought one and asked me if I knew how to make them and I told her I would try to find the answer on here. Thank you in advance.

What are scrunches? Do you mean pot scrubbers?
How do I find a spool of netting to make scrubbies?
I have been making scrubbers for years, however, recently, JoAnn's has a very stiff material that says it's to use for scrubbers. I cut the 2 inch strips, however, I don't seem to be able to crochet with it. I am using a size K hook. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong? Help please!
I like net scrubbies, but I had no luck in trying to crochet them. So I folded the netting in half then in half again and cut 3, 2 inch strips. I knotted the top and braided them to the bottom and made another knot. Then I coiled it and used a large needle and plastic, fine fishing line or plastic thread to catch all the coils, using a pliers when the needle would not go through easily. Now I have a nice thick scrubbie and am very pleased. Works good, too.

How do you cut the fabric? I bought 3 yds. Do I cut it across or up and down?

How much nettings do you buy to make one?
Does anyone know where I can get patterns for working with netting? Not just the scrubbie, but book marks, and more.

I can not crochet nylon netting scrubbies with out my hook catching on the holes of the netting. (Mary of your guest post dated 2/11/2008 had same problem). How was this solved?
Maybe you could thread the lengths of netting through a small bias tape maker/folder. It's used in making bias tape or braided rugs. It folds the 2 edges to the center. You'd probably want the smallest size, and would crochet it as it comes out. (04/30/2008)
Use a larger hook, one that can't fit into the holes of the netting. (05/01/2008)
I make scrubbies but never crocheting them. I take a length of 3 feet long by 4" wide and fold like a fan and sew through all in the middle with cotton thread, then pull the material out like you would do a fan on both ends. Hope this helps. (05/01/2008)
I make a lot of scrubbies and I use a large hook. I use a size L in crystalite hook. They are so smooth and work so fast. I recommend them for all kinds of crocheting, good luck. Scrubbies are so nice to use on dishes and an extra tip, I make big ones for the men to wash their cars with. They do not scratch and take all the bugs right off. Barb from Michigan (05/01/2008)
I am wondering if anyone knows where you can buy the tulle on rolls to make the net scrubbers.
Look in any store that sells material for making clothes, if that fails try a store that makes wedding dresses.

If all else fails, go to a thrift store and buy used wedding or prom dresses. (03/21/2008)
Fabric store -- super cheap ! (03/21/2008)
Wal-mart carries it, and so does Jo-ann fabrics (03/21/2008)
Thanks for the help with tulle for scrubbies. I was looking for it on rolls and I have found a place. Connie (03/22/2008)
You need plain net. It is about 69 cents a yard (at Walmart), is 72 inches wide, and comes in many colors. I think tulle is a finer grade fabric and more expensive. Net is quite stiff. (03/24/2008)
Well, I guess I'm the only stingy person here. I use the bags that onions come in and they do a super job. I even have one in the bathroom to use in the sink there, and if I could get down to it, I'd use it in the bathtub, but my husband takes care of that. (03/24/2008)
I found a place to buy the netting on the spools. It's www.knitsandbitsbylinda.com. I've ordered from her and get very good service. She's in New York, and I'm in Pa., and it took 2 days for me to get it. She also has a phone # for questions, and I did call her before hand about the shipping (and a few other questions). You can get 4 spools for one shipping price, but to get 8, the shipping isn't doubled, it's only a little more than the 4. She's a very nice lady, and was very helpful on the phone.
The netting is the same as what you get from Walmart, or JoAnns, or Hancock Fabrics, but it's already cut 3 inches wide, and 40 yards on a spool. And she has 32 colors. This is the netting, for scrubbing, not the tulle. The tulle is a finer mesh, not as good for dishes, but maybe good for the body. The tulle you can also get at JoAnns, or even A.C. Moore. That comes on a 6 inch roll, but only has about 25 yards on. Hope this helps. (03/26/2008)

Unravel a nylon mesh wash ball. It is likely to be one tube of nylon mesh. Cut to suitable length and tie it into a ball shape. (03/29/2008)
Hobby Lobby has the netting on rolls. I hope you find it. (04/11/2008)
