Crochet Dish Scrubber

I am trying to minimize the amount of disposable products that I use. Those types of things definitely have their uses and I don't think I'll be able to eliminate them for a very long time, but every little bit helps. That's where these dish scrubbers come in!

Instead of constantly using rough-sided sponges to get my dishes clean (when a regular dishcloth just won't cut it), I like to use one of these dish scrubbers which have a little extra grip due to using a strand of cotton thread held double with the yarn. Add that to the texture of these and you can get most of your dishes clean without having to break out the sponge. These can be thrown in the laundry and reused many, many times!

Crochet Dish Scrubber


- Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn (I used Lily's Sugar n Cream)
- Size 10 Cotton Thread
- Size G 4.25mm Crochet Hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Scissors


Ch = Chain Stitch
Sc = Single Crochet Stitch
Sl St = Slip Stitch

Pattern Notes

Before folding, my rectangle was 6.5 x 4 inches. It took me 14 rows to achieve the desired height.


Ch 26

Row 1:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in each ch (25 stitches). Ch 1, turn.

Row 2:  Sc in each stitch, front loop only. (RS)

Row 3:  Sc in each stitch. Back loop only. (WS)

Repeat Rows 2-3 until you have approx 4 inches. End on an even row.

Fold rectangle in half so that RS is facing outward.

Sl st sides together until 1 stitch before end. Ch 12. Join with sl st into final sts. Break yarn.

Sl st other end together in the same manner without the Ch loop.

Bind off and weave in ends.


  1. Thank you! This worked great. I used Red Heart Scrubby instead of the thread. LOVE it.
