Easy Knit Scrubbies

By: Beverly Leestma from
Easy Knit Scrubbies_2

These knit scrubbies are made using the Red Heart Scrubby Yarn, either holding the Scrubby Yarn double or using it with a cotton yarn. This is a nice alternative to cutting up the nylon net that's needed for many other scrubbie patterns. You can make one in 30 minutes or less so knit up a bunch to give as gifts this holiday season.  These knit scrubbies are great for those who love to spend time in the kitchen and make great stocking suffers for the holiday season.

I had not been interested in using Scrubby yarn since it is plastic. However, Red Heart now has Scrubby Cotton which is 100% cotton, which I like much better and is a little more eco-friendly. You could follow this same pattern but substitute the Scrubby Cotton doubled, or use it with plain cotton yarn.

You can never have too many scrubbies. For knitters like myself who always have to be knitting something, these are perfect and so useful. I like the addition of the cotton yarn. It makes it more durable. They work up quickly and they wash well. Thank you.

I have never used scrubby yarn if that's the name of it I usually call it the fuzzy yarn!! It always feels so soft and perfect for kids hand knit bits! is it hard to work with? I would imagine it is? I feel the bits at the edge would get caught?? Is there a trick to using it?

What you are talking about and scrubbie yarn are not the same thing. The scrubbie yarn is made of hard plastic material and is very hard on the hands to work with.

Ive made lots of scrubbies, and the yard was not hard to work with. It is scratchy. I enjoyed them, but can't find the yarn anymore.

I've never seen the scrubbie yarn. This sounds like something I'd like to make.

I make scrubbies like this using Phentex yarn - olefin. It is a Canadian product. These scrubbies never get smelly, are non-scratching, and last forever.
