Trouble Crocheting Nylon Netting Scrubbies

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?

It's possible that you are cutting the strips in the wrong direction.

Here is a good tutorial:

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.
