To begin you must cut your nylon netting into 2” wide strips. At first I found this the most challenging step; nylon netting has a way of slipping about. Somewhere along the way I began pinning my neatly folded material to the carpet. I would then mark every 2” with a black marker and cut.
Using a size 9/I crochet hook chain 4. Slip stitch to first chain to form a ring.
Round 1: Chain 2, 6 dc (double crochet) in ring. Sl st (slip stitch) to first chain.
Round 2: Chain 2, dc in same space, 2 dc in each dc of previous round. (I always add one extra dc, as I feel there is a space between where I began and where I am to end. There should be a total of 15 sts counting the first two chains as a dc.) Sl st to first chain.
Round 3: Chain 2, dc in same space, 2 dc in each dc of previous round.
Round 4: Chain 1, sc (single crochet) in each dc of previous round. Sl st to first chain.
Round 5: Chain 2, dc in each sc of previous round. Sl st to first chain.
Round 6: Chain 2, dc in every other dc of previous round.
Round 7: Chain 2, dc in every other dc of previous round.
You will now have a small opening in the back of your scrubbie. I simply slip stitch from one side of the opening into the other side 2-3 times. Cut material and draw material through the loop on your hook. Pull excess material into the inside of the scrubbie, I do this by pushing my hook through the front of the scrubbie and drawing the excess material through to the inside.
