Crocheted Scrubbies

These are so easy to make I have made a dozen or so. Crochet 20 stitches by 21 rows. Use size H crochet hook Sugar & Cream cotton (one ball of this makes three) about 3 & 1/2 across if you squish it flat! Crochet in the back loop through out to create the ridge. Row 1: (leaving a length of yarn long enough to weave through & gather one edge and tie off.) chain 21: 2 single crochet in second chain from hook, crochet one single crochet in each chain across to last 2 chains; crochet the last 2 chains together chain 1 and turn (20 stitches) Row 2: single crochet first 2 stitches together, crochet one single crochet in each stitch across to last stitch, 2 single crochet in last stitch chain 1 and turn (20 stitches) Row 3: 2 single crochet in first stitch, crochet one single crochet in each stitch across to last 2 stitches, single crochet last 2 stitches together chain1 and turn (20 stitches). Repeat rows 2 &3 for a total of 21 rows. Cut yarn leaving this second end long enough to weave through & gather one edge then tie off. Slip stitch beginning row and ending row together. Using the end of yarn weave each end in and out of the ends of the rows of the edge it is attached to. Pull them tight. Now pull one yarn end through the scrubbie and tie in a tight knot. Pull both ends back through to the other side and knot again. I simply pull the end to the inside of the scrubbie and back out, making sure to leave a length of tail on the inside I cut.
