Free Dish Scrubby Pattern

This dish scrubby pattern is a modified version of my face scrubby pattern.


Here’s what I did.

I followed this pattern Crochet Face Scrubby Pattern and made the following changes. The pattern is written below the modifications.

Crochet Hooks: I9 and J10

Yarn Used: held double stranded with one strand of each, Yarn Bee Scrub-ology Cotton and Caron Cotton Cakes (you can also do this holding the Yarn Bee Scrub-ology Yarn double stranded, after making the MAR drop the caron cotton yarn and use 2 strands of the Scrub-ology Cotton).

I created my magic adjustable ring (MAR) with just the Caron Cotton Cake then using the Scrub-ology Cotton and Cotton Cake yarn held at the same time followed the pattern up to the finishing round.

When cinching the MAR closed, use the Caron Cotton Yarn to easily cinch closed. The Yarn Bee Scrub-ology yarn is not a smooth yarn and didn’t work well when used to make the MAR, by only using the smooth Caron Cotton Yarn to make the MAR it will cinch closed without any problem.

Once you have worked the pattern and completed round 3 I dropped the Scrub-ology yarn and only used the Cotton Cake yarn to slip stitch for the last round. You also want to switch to your J hook.

And that is it.

Here’s the pattern: For detailed instructions on the modified Puff Stitch visit the Crochet Face Scrubby Post


ch = chain                 dc = double crochet  MAR  = magic adjustable ring

hdc2tog puff st abbreviated as (puff) in this pattern = half double crochet 2 together puff stitch   

st(s) = stitch(es)        sc = single crochet         sl st = slip stitch  () = parenthese with a number inside is equal to the number of stitches at the end of the round.

Special Technique: Half Double Crochet 2 Together Puff Stitch – step by step photos on the Crochet Face Scrubby Post 

Hdc2tog puff st (puff) = yarn over hook, insert into center of MAR and pull through you should have 3 loops on your hook. (images 1 & 2). Yarn over hook, insert into center of MAR and pull through, you will have 5 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull yarn through all 5 loops (images 3 & 4).


All stitches will be crocheted in the space between each puff stitch. 

With your I9 hook Start with MAR, ch2 

Round 1: 9 puff sts into MAR (image 1), pull MAR tail to cinch closed. Join in the beginning with a sl st. (9)

Round 2: ch2, 2 puff sts into each space (the space between each puff st). Join with sl st (18)

Round 3: ch2, *1 puff st into next space, 2 puff sts into the next space, repeat from * to end. Join with sl st (27)

Switch to J hook for last round.

Finishing: Sl st around the edge of round, into each of the stitches. Join in the beginning with a sl st.

Cut yarn and weave in all yarn tails.

Make 3-6  scrubbies and wrap using ribbon or you can download my dish scrubbies wrap in my Etsy Shop.

Now I did mention earlier that you can also hold the Yarn Bee Scrub-ology Cotton Yarn double stranded to make one of these scrubbies, either way they seem to work out. If you find the yarn to be too difficult with an I9 hook you can always size up to the J10 then work the finishing round with a K.

If you do make one using only the Yarn Bee Scrub-ology Cotton Yarn be sure to make the MAR with a smooth cotton yarn, then use the 2 strands of Scrub-ology Cotton to work through the rest of the pattern.

Thank you so much for making it this far on my post. I have been washing my dishes with the scrubby and really like it, it isn’t too big or too small and fits perfectly in my hand to scrub cups! I have a set of Gotham Steep Non-Stick Pans and this scrubby is just right to scrub my pans too. The Yarn Bee Scrub-ology Cotton Yarn is a bit of a tricky yarn to work with and I found that the addition of a strand of cotton yarn make it so much easier to work with and the scrubby part of the yarn is still effective when washing your dishes.

Since this pattern is held double stranded and I am using a smaller than probably would be recommended you can easily work this with a size J hook if you find using the I to bee too difficult. 

If you have the time I would appreciate it if you would visit my Etsy Shop, sales on tags and other printables like the Dish Scrubby and Dish Scrubber wraps pictured in this post help me out a lot so that I can keep adding free patterns and printables onto my blog. I love not having ads all over my site, I don’t want to add ads other than a few affiliate links here and there to my posts as I think they really ruin the viewing experience. I am hoping if I can continue to make sales in my Etsy Shop to help me with my finances I can continue to add freebies to my site.

Thank you so much, and happy hooking 🙂

    You have some lovely patterns here thank you for your generosity in giving some free. I might take the little heart Hat pattern and work it into some preemie hats for my hospital and also the scrunchie pattern which I am always using. Thanks again

      Thank you, the tiny hearts pattern would make really great preemie hats. My daughter was a preemie and in the NICU for 30 days, we still have the handknit beanie that she got while she was there.
