Knit Pot Scrubbies

I was so excited to find this new yarn by Red Heart – Scrubby.  I decided to make pot scrubbies using this yarn and 100% cotton yarn that I had left over from knitting dishcloths.  They are Brilliant! (My new word because I say awesome way too much!)

Using a 5mm needle I knit the two yarns together.  I cast on 15 stitches and knit using  garter stitch until the piece measured 3 inches.  Then I crocheted  one row of single crochet in the cotton yarn around the edge.

I am always looking for a quick easy project to do at night.  I made a bunch and put them in the local Arts Council store and they have started to sell.  This is a win win.  I can support the local Arts Council by paying a small commission and can make some extra money to go towards my future new kitchen.

P.S.  This yarn also makes great dish cloths.

Happy Stitching!  Joanne

About westwoodcottage

Growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparent’s farm, Westwood Cottage. It was a magical place. My sister and I always returned home having made something; cookies, a craft, gathering wild flowers and making a bouquet. And I have continued the tradition. I'm a Home Economist with an interest in living a creative life. I sew, bake, write, and have tried most crafts at least once. Adding to one of my many interesting vintage collections is great fun. My husband is a brilliant painter as you will soon see and he is an amateur actor and playwright. We have one son who is a cartoonist animator and another son who is fast becoming a computer wiz. Living in a prairie town in a 126 year old home gives us a lot of inspiration to explore our passions. Won’t you come join us on the journey?
