Making a Crocheted Broom Handle Duster

May 8, 2010

Crocheted Broom Handle DusterI don't know about your house, but here it is spider season. The little devils are leaving their cobwebs around all over the place. I have an aversion to step stools, okay just call me Grace, so I whipped up this little goodie to reach all those pesky webs without my tooties ever leaving the security of the floor.


Approximate Time: 30 minutes max


Size: Approximately 6 inches tall



Rnd 1: Starting at top, ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook (6 sc)

Note 1: Do not join rounds. Mark first stitch of each round if necessary.

Rnd 2: 2 sc in blo of each stitch around (12sc)

Rnds 3-5: Sc in blo of each stitch around (12sc)

Note 2: At this point try it on a broom handle. It should fit fairly snug. If it fits too loose, switch to a smaller hook for the remainder of the tube.

Rnds 6-19: Sc in each st around. Tube should be approximately 6 inches long. Slip stitch in next 2 sc.

Break off and weave in end.


Join yarn with a slipstitch in first unworked loop of round 1. Chain 12, slip stitch in next unworked loop. Continue working chain 12 and slipstitch in next unused loop until you reach the start of round 6. (40 loops)


Break off and weave in end.

Place on broom handle and dust those cobwebs away. Shake and wash.

blo = back loop only

Yes, there are tutorials online that show instructions for adding loops to broom handle dusters. You can purchase looped handles at any hardware store or create your own by cutting the necessary length of cord and then threading it through the eye of a needle. Simply tie one end of the string to one end of the rod before tying it off with an overhand knot at the other end, leaving about 12" - 24" (30cm - 60cm) slack on each side before tying it off with another overhand knot.


With needle in hand, work about an inch (2 cm) away from where you want the loop to be; place your fingers above and below this point; press down firmly; pull slightly back towards

I found free crochet pattern for broom stick duster by M. Kay Creations:

It starts with a magic ring from 6 half double crochet (hdc), slip stitch (sl st) to join. You can watch how to crochet Magic Ring (or Magic Circle) in this video:
Round (Rnd) 2: 1 ch (for lift), 2 hdc in each stitch, sl st to join.
Rnd 3: hdc in back loop of each st, sl st to join.
Rnd 4: hdc in each stitch.


Tie on small pom pom at the top in the center. Make sure it is tight.
Rnds 5-14: hdc in each st, sl st to join. Fasten off in end.
The duster part:
Rnd 1: sl st around one of the post under the pom pom, 16 ch, go around next post yarn over pull through and sc ch, 16 sc around next post, 16 chain, repeat around.
Rnd 2-5: sl st around the post under the last sl st, 16 chain, sc around next st, 16 chain, repeat around. Finish of crochet.
