Crochet Tulle Dish Scrubbies
UPDATE: VIDEO TUTORIAL NOW AVAILABLE. CHECK THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST.
I love making practical items to use around my home, and these dish scrubbies are one of my favorites. They are made from nylon tulle, and withstand even the heaviest of scrubbing. To sanitize them, simply boil a pot of water, remove from the heat, and drop your scrubbies in for a few minutes. Now.... on to the pattern! Try to keep your stitches a bit loose so your scrubbies will be fluffy.
What You Need:
A spool of 6" tulle. You can get 2 scrubbies from WalMart tulle rolls
9mm crochet hook
sl st: slip stitch
dc: double crochet
sc: single crochet
Round 1: Ch 4, then sl st into the first ch to form a circle.
Round 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), then make 14 dc into the circle, and sl st to the top of the ch 2. Ch 1.
Round 3: 2 sc into the same stitch, and in each stitch around. Sl st to the first sc, and finish off.
Repeat rounds 1 & 2.
Round 3: 2sc in the same stitch and in each stitch around, but do not sl st to the first sc. Place both circles together, wrong sides facing each other. Insert your hook into the first sc, and into any of the sc stitches from the first circle made and make a sl st. Sl st both circles together, all the way around, and finish off. Weave in your ends, and go do some dishes!

I am trying to make but seems so tight. I did go up hook size and trying to crochet loose but still difficult. Any suggestions? Think on M hook

I have done scrubbies with tulle and used a 12mm hook.

I have tried this with both M and N hooks. Also am trying to crochet loosely but this is so tight! I cannot fit 14 dc in the round. I’m using tulle from Hobby Lobby; maybe it is thicker? Any advice would be appreciated!

So when you say 2 scrubbies out of one roll does that mean 1 complete scrubbies with 2 sides? TYIA

Are you cutting the 6" toile jn half and crocheting with a 3" strip or crocheting with the full 6 inches.

Do you know if Michaels carry this tulle?

I have tulle from a commercial site, so it is huge. How many yards of tulle are on a roll from Walmart or similar store? “The roll makes two scrubbies” is not enough information. How many yards to make a scrubbie?
2/11/2023 09:01:36 pm
Hobby lobby rolls are 25 yards each. I'm using the 3 inch rolls and it is much easier to use.

No video at bottom of site.?

Thanks for the information! There does seem to be a difference in gauge of tulle, but I have made it work.
