Crochet scrubbies are the perfect addition to any kitchen. They are more durable and more stylish than most store-bought sponges and cloths. Plus, you can use leftover yarn to make them at a much more affordable price. Use crochet scrubbies in your own kitchen to scour pots, pans, and dishes. Make extras and gift them to others! The ten free crochet patterns here vary in size, shape, color, and even texture, giving you a lot to choose from.

There are so many things to love about this free crochet scrubbie pattern.
- It starts out with a storebought crochet scrubbie. This is a great way to upcycle onething you might already have at home.

- It uses basic crochet stitches so even a beginner can make this. Additionally, the written pattern is accompanied by a video tutorial just in case you need extra help.

Take the same idea of upcycling an inexpensive store scrubbie but instead of making it a granny square turn it into a flower. With this free crochet pattern, you will leave one side of the scrubbie exposed while covering the other one with crochet. This gives you a smooth side and a "scrubber" side for maximum function.Continue to 5 of 10 below.

This is a really simple crochet scrubbie pattern. It's just a circle. However, color changes give a bit more pop to the design. This is a small scrubbie, which means that it's a great project for using up scrap yarn. Make sure to use cotton yarn for scrubbie projects since it works the best in water.

Food might be a better inspiration than fish for a crochet scrubbie that you're going to use in the kitchen. This one is a pear. With this pattern, you make two pears - one in a soft yarn and one in a "scrubbie" yarn. Then you stitch them together to create a double-sided kitchen scrubber.Continue to 9 of 10 below.

This project's crochet designer worked long and hard to come up with a design for crochet scrubbies to actually use. This is the result of all of that hard work. Here are five reasons to love the final design:
- The scrubbies are flat so they can work to clean anything.
- A round shape means that there are no corners to curl up.
- Although they soften with time, they stay stiff enough to really scrub away grime.
- The optional-hanging loop is perfect for hanging these scrubbies to dry.
- The slip stitch edging increases the durability of the project.
