Two shades of blue combine to create easy-to-knit scrubbies to help clean up the after dinner mess. These knit dishcloths are machine washable, so you can easily keep them fresh and looking their best. You'll love the ease of knitting with this sparkly yarn and the pattern has instructions for two different dishcloths, so you can make a perfect pair. Whenever your next housewarming party rolls around, you'll be able to make a fun and functional gift. This is one free knitting pattern from Red Heart you don't want to miss.

Red Hearts Scrubby yarns are now available in three different styles which are sparkle, smoothie, and cotton. I prefer the cotton as it is really the best and most absorbent material to use in the kitchen and especially for something that will be near / used with water most of the time. These could also be doubled for more durability.

I make all my scrubbies now since they are so easy to put together. They wear longer and are easy to wash. I am always knitting something. Is it nerves? Haha! So why not something useful. And now my non-knitting friends want them as well. Thank you.

Kitchen scrubbies are so useful! I can never have enough and they do make good gifts. These knit up fast too. I like this pattern because the use of two yarns makes the knitting and end result a bit more interesting and fun. Thank you for sharing this pretty little project.
