Scrubbing Bobbles Scrubbie Sponge

Okay, so I love love love with a passion my cotton washcloths and sponges I have made in the past and even sold on etsy...however, I recently made a headband with bobbles, and I sure did think they would work up nicely in cotton, and be a great little nubby addition to a sponge. So without further ado, here is my first published pattern.

  1. so very cute, wish I knew how to really crochet.

  2. I'm gonna give this a try. May take me a little while because I still have to go back and read translations to all the abbreviations but I'll give it a shot. I just happen to have a new ball of worsted yarn calling my name.

    I just finished a wash cloth and I LOVE your scrubbies!

  3. Angela!! I am so excited you are crocheting now!YAY for making a washcloth too!! I was wondering if you were crocheting or knitting when you posted on my FB a while back. If you have any know where to find me. :)

  4. Just saw this on Ravelry... love it! It's really cute - gonna go make one!

  5. Um, you forgot the directions on how to crochet! ;)

  6. those are lovely, if I could crochet I'd be rushing to make some!

  7. Just a couple of questions. Did you leave off the rest of the instructions for the bobble: Yarn over and draw through all 7 loops on hook? And in round 1 to continue around working in the the skipped front loops?

  8. Darlene, thanks, those are some great clarifications...I will edit my post to include them. :)

  9. I just tryed your is great! Thanks

  10. Was just wondering if you could use tulle to make it like a scour pad?

    1. I'm not sure you would even want to do this pattern with tulle, because it would already be scrubbalicious without the could just do a rectangle with tulle and fold it to make a square sc all the sides together and have a tulle scrubby.?.?

    2. is there a video on how to crochet the ist row where you crochet to the end
      and then goo back on the same row. I am new at crocheting and I would
      like to do this pattern. thanks for any help or suggestions
