About this Pattern

If you’re tired of buying kitchen sponges and brushes, this is the perfect pattern for you! I made the switch to crochet scrubbies and haven’t looked back. They’re so much more economical and affordable than a regular kitchen sponge.

You may find this project challenging because Scrubby yarn is more difficult to work with than smooth yarns. The quality that turns it into an amazing pot scrubby also makes it difficult to see and count your stitches. Don’t let that keep you from giving this crochet scrubby set a try!

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you will need to get started as well as a video tutorial demonstrating how to crochet the pot scrubby and scrubby cloth as well as written instructions for both.

getting started

Recommended Supplies

  • 1 Skein Red Heart Scrubby, Scrubby Sparkle or Scrubby Cotton
  • 5.5 mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.

Additional Notes

Finished Size

Pot scrubby: 4″ diameter
Scrubby cloth: 6″ diameter


Use first 4 rounds of scrubby cloth to measure gauge. Approximately 4″.

This pattern and tutorial begins with the pot scrubby. The pot scrubby method uses a clever way of stitching to help with the lack of stitch visibility.

The second part of the tutorial covers the scrubby cloth. You will need to work into stitches and count as you go, but the pattern is simple and easy to follow. The chain 3 at the beginning of each round counts as a dc.

Written Instructions

Pot Scrubby

Round 1: Ch 22. Join with a slst to the first chain to form a ring. Ch 3. Make 25 dc around the foundation chain (don’t attempt to work into the chains). Do not join, continue with next round.

Round 2: Fpdc first dc. Fpdc every st. Do not join at end of the round.


Continue working a fpdc for every st in a spiral fashion until your work measures approximately 4″ tall from starting edge. Fasten off leaving a 6″ tail.


For the top and bottom of the scrubby, weave the tail in and out of each stitch in the round. Pull the tail to draw up the closure.

Flatten the scrubby with the drawn up ends in the center of the scrubby. Thread one tail through the center of the scrubby and tie it off with the other end. Trim the tails and you’re done!
