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?

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.
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.
I just cut the nylon netting into squares and use it like a dishcloth. (07/09/2009)
