Since Spring cleaning is happening everywhere as the snow melts and people here in Arizona are heading to the pool, I upgraded my kitchen with some much-needed heavy-duty bulky kitchen scrubbies.
Quite frankly, they’re addicting to make. I whipped up 6 of them in a couple of evenings this week and I can’t wait to gift away more!
These bulky dish scrubbies are the perfect size for every hand and don’t stretch out like other scrubbies do. They’re made with a Half Double Crochet stitch and work up pretty quickly.
The only fiddly bit is learning how to work with Red Heart Scrubby yarn. It takes some practice, and you can always go up a hook size if that makes the project easier.
Ready? Let’s get crafty!
