Spiral Scrubby Washcloth Pattern

Yesterday I posted some washcloths I recently made, including one that I “designed” myself.  I put designed in quotes, because it’s just  spiral.  But, if you don’t know how to do a spiral, here’s a pattern for you!

Spiral Scrubby Washcloth:

Materials:

  • Yarn A:  Cotton yarn (I used I love this Cotton)
  • Yarn B:  Scrubby yarn (I used Washi by Premier Yarns)
  • H Hook (5.0 mm)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle

Magic Ring

Start With a Magic Ring. If you’ve never done a magic ring, there are plenty of tutorials out there, but I also have some step by step instructions here.

Wrap the yarn over your fingers as shown.  The tail should be towards your fingers.

Insert your hook from the right and grab the left most wrap of yarn.

Pull the yarn under the other two wraps of yarn.

Extract your fingers from the loops, but keep your loop intact.  Add one sc to the loop to hold the ring in place, does not count as stitch.

Pull the tail and the working yarn taught until the ring is snug on your finger.
