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 tie my pieces together with square knots, because they are very strong, yet small enough they can rarely be seen.

Type in "free crochet patterns" on the internet and see what you come up with. I used to be a member of a site that had free patterns, but I don't remember what it was called.

Try:

www.crochetnmore.com

www.favecrafts.com

www.crochetmemories.com

Also, any of the web sites for the yarn companies (Lion Brand; Red Heart; Caron; etc.) usually have free patterns. And as "thriftyvicki" stated, just type in "free crochet patterns". You'll be surprised at what you get.

Good luck on your adventure! Linda.

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?

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 recently purchased a dish scrubber made of nylon netting and would like to make some. Anyone have any patterns they would like to share?

By Sue from St. Charles, MO

Answers:

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

Purchase nylon netting that has a scratchy feel to it. Don't purchase the tulle because it's too soft. Cut into narrow strips and either sew the ends together or tie the ends into small knots. Roll into a ball like you would roll yarn.

G5

Geometric Scrubbie Pattern:

Use a J crochet hook (Use smaller hook if you want a smaller scrubbie). Place a safety pin under the both loops of your first sc when beginning a round. This takes the guesswork out of "where" to join when you come to the end of a round.

Using nylon net, ch 4. Join with sl st to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch1, 6 sc in ring- 6 sc. Join with sl st in first sc.



Round 2: Ch1, 2 sc in same sc as joining and in each sc around-12dc. Join.



Round 3: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining, 2 sc in next sc, *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 18 sc. Join.



Round 4: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around-24 sc. Join.



Round 5: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 30 sc. Join.



Round 6: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 36 sc. Join.



Round 7: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 42 sc. Join. Finish off.

Stiff nylon netting scraps make great scrubbers for dishes, car bumpers/windows, bathroom porcelain, and removing paint with stripper. Their holes catch raised food/dirt/paint and remove it. Nylon net is perfectly paired with baking soda as an abrasive, as both will not leave scratches on surfaces you're cleaning.

I've been using netties I've made from nylon net to clean my dishes for many, many years. I hate using anything else. (01/27/2008)

By Millie

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

I use the mesh bags that onions, garlic, fruit, etc. come in from the produce dept at the grocery store. After the bag is empty, cut off the metal clamp or the plastic end, then fold or scrunch up the bag and use to scrub dishes, pots & pans, sinks, anything that needs cleaning without causing scratches. Sometimes I save up several mesh bags, fold them up into a small pad and use a rubber band to hold it together on the top or end. These work just as well as the store bought scrubbies and I've recycled the mesh bags! (01/27/2008)

By bluealt

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

I use the mesh bags that go around frozen turkeys, from fruit, etc, too. I fold them into rectangles and crochet around the outside edges for a finished look (sometimes I double or triple them for puffier scrubbies). I wait until I have a bunch of bags, then do the crochet while watching TV. This way I make several at a time. They last a long time, so by the time I need more, I have quite a few bags waiting.

To Cheryl: In Oregon we can buy nylon netting at JoAnn Fabrics. I would think any large fabric store would have it, probably even Walmart. (07/12/2008)

By Glenn'sMom

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

I just did a google search for nylon net scrubbers and found a site for Heloise with directions for making them.

1) Cut 3 strips of net 6" x 72" (that's the width of the net)
2) Using a large needle and dental floss or heavy thread, run a basting stitch from one end to the other in the center.
3) Hold the needle and using the other hand gather the net tightly.
4) Wrap the floss/thread around the middle of the gathered net and make a knot.
5) Separate the layers and you have a scrubber! (07/12/2008)

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)

By Sallie

Looking For Tulle To Make Nylon Net Scrubbers

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)
