World’s Best Kitchen Scrubbie

I’m happy to offer you this free pattern + video tutorial, because these scrubbies feel like a secret I’ve been keeping for years. I say “World’s Best” because I believe it – this is what you’ll find at my kitchen sink! They get the job done, rinse easily, and dry quickly – meaning they never stink. To make these, we knit with tulle fabric (also called mesh or netting), cut into strips. It’s a fun project, to boot.

This pattern is a FREE RAVELRY DOWNLOAD, and includes a link to a free video tutorial (video is also available at the bottom of this post).

Size: 3” x 4”
Needles: Size 10.5 US, straights or circulars
Yarn: No yarn! We use tulle fabric (also called mesh fabric or netting fabric), cut into strips. I cut the strips from 1” to 2” wide. (In the photo above, the tan one was knit with 1” wide strips, the other two were knit with 2” wide strips.) You will need about 12 yards of cut strips per scrubbie.
Additional Materials: tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Gauge: Gauge doesn’t really matter. To get the size above, my gauge was 4.5 stitches per inch.

Note: Do not buy sparkly, glittery fabric. Unless you like vacuuming sparkles off of every surface of your home and pets. Speaking from experience here!

The pink scarf I’m wearing can be found here.
(I don’t have a Ravelry page for this project – I believe I used Malabrigo lace yarn.)

The sweater on the mannequin is loosely based on this pattern.
(Again, sorry – I don’t remember the yarn I used for this.)

The needles I’m using are Crystal Palace wood DPNs.

  1. Hi Staci,

    Forget questions about the scrubbi……what was the big sigh all about at the beginning of the video 🙂 Just kidding. Just ordered some tulle……thanks for another great tutorial.


  2. I am working my way through the tutorials, and I wanted to mention how much I like these. I was prompted to try them when I was ordering from a supplier I like (paper, ribbons, boxes) and noticed they carry 3″ tulle ribbon of a good quality (I won’t give the name of the company, but if you Google 3″ tulle ribbon, it comes up as one of the companies in the search). I was intending to cut them down the middle, but I got lazy and knitted the 3″ ribbon – and I love the result. Nice and thick and “scrubby”! And at 25 yards a roll, no knots! It’s an option for those who like a thicker result.
