I would like instructions for making nylon net scrubbies.
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.
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.
Here is an easy pattern with pics and video.

Does anyone have a pattern for knitting kitchen "scrubbies" from tulle? These are awesome for removing bugs from your car bumper without scratching!

I would like the pattern for crocheted nylon net pot scrubbies, starting out with a chain five.
|Crocheted Pot Scrubber|
To do the actual pot scrubber, I purchase 16 meters of the heaviest netting. Cutting it in 3 3/4 inch strips is the challenge. I lay a large flat cardboard across my bed or table with the chalk lines on it. I fold the netting back and forth like folding a large fan (accordion style) and pin each fold every time to keep it straight and flat. This will save you a lot of grief in the end by keeping the strips straight and even. Take a ruler and draw the chalk lines across. Cut and roll each strip into individual balls ready to make one scrubber. To roll the ball quickly, just wrap the netting around a cracker box into loops, slide the loops off of the box, squeeze the loops together like the figure eight and wind a few wraps in the center to keep it from unraveling. These long balls are now ready to take in your car to fill idle time as a passenger or just keep handy to crochet while watching TV or talking on the phone.
Using a 5mm crochet hook, I crochet one circle beginning at one end of the ball and the other circle beginning at the other end, leaving enough (two or so meters) to join them together. The circles consist of 6 chains, join, then two double crochet in the back of every stitch (sometimes one). Just lay flat and adjust to keep it flat. Keep going in a pinwheel fashion until it is about 3 to 4 inches across. Make them both about the same size and single crochet together with the right sides out. It will resemble a flat hamburger patty. Weave the ends into the scrubber for added strength and scrubbing power. Crochet the handle and you are done! Keep your scrubber handy and dry by hanging it on your drinking tap out of the way. I also have a small flowerpot with drain holes to keep them in. These scrubbers are non-scratching and Teflon safe.

I crochet my own pot scrubbers but to keep them handy and dry, I have added a band on the one side.
I would like to have the instructions on how to make knitted or crocheted pot scrubbers. What material is used to make them? Thanks.
I bought a pot scrubber that was made from yarn and maybe nylon net. It is small, just right to hold in your hand. Does anyone have instructions as to how to make these pot scrubbers?
