I recently made up some scrubbies as a sort of housewarming present for our new next-door neighbors and since the scrubbies turned out so well, I wanted to share the pattern with you!

Scrubbies are such a great quick, easy, and useful project to work up. They make great last minute gifts.

These scrubbies are made in two halves that are crocheted separately and then slip stitched together to form a thick and durable scrubby. The one side is smooth, while the other side has spoke like ridges emanating from the center, that made me think of wheels and hubcaps, hence the Hubcap Dish Scrubby! The ridges help provide additional scrubbing action.

You can easily finish one of these while watching an episode of your favorite show, as they only take about 30 minutes from start to finish.

The yarn I used for these scrubbies is Scrubology’s Scrub It in Aqua. I made both sides of the scrubby in the same color, but you could mix it up and use different colors for each side. There are a few different colors of it to choose from.

If you want to substitute yarn, I would suggest holding a scrubby yarn (such as Red Heart Scrubby) together with a worsted weight cotton yarn blend (such as Shine Worsted from Knit Picks) to form a bulky yarn.

Rnd 4: ch 2, *2 dc in first st, dc in next, fpdc in next st*, repeat from *to* 9 times, join with slip stitch to first stitch (40 sts (30 dc and 10 fpdc))

Do not fasten off, instead proceed to join the two rounds together.

Joining the sides:

Place the wrong sides of the two rounds together and slip stitch the two rounds together, tuck the tail of side one into the space between the two sides to save time on weaving in ends.

Once you have finished slip stitching the two rounds together, fasten off and weave in the remaining end.

If you would like to make a smaller sized scrubby, simply omit round 4 from both sides and then slip stitch the two sides together as usual.
