Crochet Cotton Dish Sponge

22 posts in this topic

That is one of my favorite patterns and I make them whenever I only have a small amount of cotton left. A very unique and handy substitute to the dish cloth!

Very interesting. I'm sitting here wondering if there's a way to add something a bit scratchy to the surface. Some nylon netting? Or maybe start with a rectangle of nylon netting and build the other side with crochet? They'd wash like a dream and I could have a ton of them without spending a fortune.

I was thinking of that type of thing myself last night , MaryPat.

I am sure you could use different types of yarn, different stitchs, change the size, all very easily.

You could do one side with nylon yarn/nettings, acrylic (depending what you like for scrubbie side, and then the other with a regular cotton. Or carry the netting with the cotton one side , carry it under on the other side etc.

Lots of ideas!

Well, at the risk of my kitchen swap partner seeing this... (and everyone posting this and the circular scrubbie patterns have totally ruined my surprise for her :P LOL). I did make the dish sponge in nylon yarn, and modified the pattern to make just sc, not hdc, since it's so dang hard to work with. I have a scraped knuckle where the yarn was wrapped over my left hand. Maybe she'll let us know if the nylon works better than the cotton (she's getting both SHHHH!). Patty

I got a pattern to make a dish scrubber with tulle and cotton yarn. Have tried to knit that scrubber and use the knitted as a disposable scrubber and as an alternative to my purchased kitchen scrubber. Work pretty good!
