What's your favorite crocheted scrubber pattern made out of netting? I bought the netting today and want to get started but don't have a pattern yet. Thanks. Terry

Terlyn: Send me a PM with your email address and I''ll send a copy of a netted scrubbie that I like. It''s done on a double-ended crochet hook. Quick & pretty. It's from Scrubbies by Darla Fanton; A dozen reversible dish cloths to crochet with a double-ended hook.   (There's not a way to send a copy through CITR…besides there may be © issues.)

Hey Tadpole, welcome to the site!  We're happy to have you visit but while most crochet-ers can do and will share a pattern with a friend, here at CitR we're really careful to respect the copyright laws both to the letter and in spirit. 

We don't encourage posting or sharing patterns, pictures or any other property, real or intellectual from other sites, books or even things just wandering around the web in a wholesale way.  I'm not going to criticize a few here and there who share e-mails or PMs, I suspect authors don't mind a bit of that either, (though publishers may!) especialy when they include the info about where it came from so others can buy the book, or go to a library and look for it!

Even a recipe that you have used and love, can't be copied and pasted just as is.  If you have used a recipe, and write your own version of how to make it (cause we all add nuances to our cooking!), that's definitely ok, just be sure to use your own photography too.  We do check out nearly all of what is posted here too.  Oh, I'm sure the mods miss some things, but we try to respect other people's work.

ANYWAY!!!  Here's some really good FREE links to FREE patterns that people have posted for scrubbies! 

http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/scrubbers.php

Also, my mom used to make great scrubbies that were clammered for by all her friends and family.  She did figure out what she did and write it down, but I have to tell you, I haven't seen it in ages.  That's bad on my part.  I just cut strips of nylon tulle about two inches wide, tie them together and use it like yarn to crochet little squares or circles… hers were much nicer, but mine work too!  

I've been thinking I should work out how she did hers, but haven't gotten down to that yet.

I like this idea personally, http://www.tangledyarns.ca/crochet/2009/5/31/my-first-free-crochet-pattern-for-public-consumption.html , this lady uses nylon yarn, but I'm in the habit of cutting the nylon netting so that's probably what I'd do, unless I found nylon yarn really cheap.

Maybe we need a CitR challenge for the best scrubby pattern!!!!

To add to these suggestions, we also have an entire topic just for posting links to favorite patterns for craft projects here: /forum/primitive-crafts-country-style/links-to-patterns-and-projects/ 

All sorts of wonderful places there to visit!

Yes, that's very true Pete!  The parent link to that one I posted with all the scrubby links on it is in that thread in fact.  Since this thread was about only scrubbies though, I thought it a good place for that one segment of it since there were so many choices there!  I sure spent a long time looking through all the choices!  Now I need to get out my rotary cutter and slice up some tulle strips!

I was just thinking about what I could do with my onion and citrus bags. Would they work in place of toulle (sic?) for a scrubby??

Aprilejoi: I've got a stash of those citrus & onion bags. I've tried cutting them into strips (like one does with tulle) but they seem so short...also, I'm afraid they are too rough for non stick pots and pans...there's quite a difference between tulle and netting, and again another difference in those citrus bags. I haven't given up, yet. It's just going to take some more imagination.

Hmmmm....this thread has me thinking.....would this be a good use for my bailing twine?  With two hungry horses in the backyard I have TONS of it and I just hate to throw it away....

That is soooo funny!  Way back in the day, making macrame from twine was all the rage.  In some circles - the ones who were recycling baling twine!  So, it sure ought to work for something crocheted, or something.

Knotted, or crocheted, totes and flower pot holders come to mind.

I was thinking about bailing twine braided "rugs" for the back door too.   Ought to be good for wiping barn-y feet off.  Now if I can just figure out how to get a couple of more hours added to my day so I can actually try some things.......

Would you like to try knitting a dish scrubber with cotton yarn and tulle? I got a tutorial from the Internet and love the scrubbie that I knitted by myself. It's a pretty alternative to my silicone scrubber in the kitchen.
