How to Crochet Pot Scrubbers

No kitchen sink should be without a pot scrubber for getting into the nooks and crannies of dirty pots and pans. While you can purchase a basic pot scrubber, if you enjoy crocheting you can also crochet pot scrubbers for sudsing your dirty dishes. Use tulle in a color that fits your kitchen decor, and spend an afternoon or evening crocheting a pot scrubber to keep by the kitchen sink.

Step 1

Cut the tulle into 3-inch-wide strips and sew the ends of tulle together with a sewing machine so you have 24 3-inch-wide strips sewn together end-to-end. Wind the prepared tulle into a ball.

Step 2

Chain 5 loosely with the prepared tulle and crochet a slip stitch in the first chain to make a ring.

Step 3

Chain 3. Crochet 11 double-crochets in the ring and then join the last double-crochet stitch to the chain-3 with a slip stitch.

Step 4

Chain 3 and crochet a double-crochet stitch in the same stitch. Crochet two double-crochet stitches in each stitch around the circle. Join the last double-crochet stitch to the chain-3 with a slip stitch.

Step 5

Cut the tulle off to leave a 3-inch tail. Yarn over and draw the tail all the way through the loop. Remove the crochet hook and pull the loop tight.

Step 6

Thread the end of the tulle tail through the yarn needle and weave the end in to the crocheting.

Make a second identical circle.

Step 8

Place the two circles on top of each other. Thread the yarn needle with a 12-inch length of matching cotton yarn. Insert the needle through the center of the two circles and make two 1-inch stitches in an "X" in the center of the circles. Tie a knot in the yarn, weave in the end and clip any excess yarn to finish the pot scrubber.
