This year I am posting a new pattern for a cloth of some kind each week. People have seemed to enjoy our first one of the year, “January Washcloth“. This week’s scrubbie is very similar, but made with 2 strands held together and a J hook. One end is left open so your hand can slide inside to make scrubbing easier.
This pattern is part of a 4 piece set for the month. I hope you enjoy all of these patterns.
- Week #1: January Washcloth
- Week #3: Chill Buddy
- Week #4: Penguin Hanging Towel

To find the placement, go to the st as you normally would and insert the hook just below, between the posts.
Ch 2, turn, hdc between the first two posts, *sk 1, (sc, dc) between the next 2 posts*, repeat until 1 st remains, hdc between the last 2 posts. (24sts)
