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.

I have made nylon net scrubbies using my blue round Knifty Knitter. I cast on like I'm making a hat and knit about 16 rows. Then when I am ready to bind off, I bind off like a hat. The left over "yarn" is then sewn through each side about 2 times.
I have made several of these and they are very sturdy. The family loves them! I also found the netting at JoAnn's, they have some that is very coarse. These scrubbies are great for cleaning tough burnt on grease because they don't mar the surfaces. You can use the smaller Knifty Knitter (the one for making flowers), but it comes out very small.

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!

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.

To make a two sided pot scrubber, just crochet two face scrubbies and single crochet them together. You can find pattern here: noelwright.blogspot.com
Does anyone know where I can get patterns for working with netting? Not just the scrubbie, but book marks, and more.

I want to make some scrunches with mesh netting. Can you please tell me how to make them? I have mesh netting fabric, but don't know how to make them.

What are scrunches? Do you mean pot scrubbers?

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?

How do you tie the pieces together on the nylon netting?

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?
I am wondering if anyone knows where you can buy the tulle on rolls to make the net scrubbers.
By ebt alta
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)
