Red Heart Scrubby Vs. Scrubby Sparkle

Did you know there are actually TWO types of red heart scrubby yarn? That’s right! There is the original Red Heart Scrubby, and then a variation called Red Heart Scrubby Sparkle.

Both yarns are made from 100% polyester, but they have a slightly different feel and texture to them. Personally, I prefer the look AND feel of the original yarn, not the sparkle. But I recommend buying both to see which one you like better.

As for the patterns in this list, there is a variety—some use the original yarn, some use sparkle. Since the yarns are the same weight, I am pretty sure you would be able to use them interchangeably if you only have one on hand. (The final look of the project might just be a little different).

How do you crochet with red heart scrubby yarn?

Although Red Heart Scrubby is super fun, its different texture can also make it intimidating to use. It can be slightly harder to see the stitches because a single strand of yarn is full of fuzzy bits coming off the sides.

If you are new to this yarn, here are some tips that may help when working with it:

  • Crochet by feel. Believe it or not, you don’t always have to see stitches to work into them! You can use your fingers to feel where the next stitch is.
  • Start with a very easy project. For example, the second pattern in the list we’re about to go through is made from a simple rectangle of single crochet. This is easier than trying to work in the round right away with this yarn.
  • Count all your stitches. This will ensure you don’t lose track as you go (since counting stitches afterward is harder when you can’t see them as well!)

You can do it! With this yarn, I recommend just jumping right in and troubleshooting as you go.

So if you’ve been curious about trying out this yarn, or maybe you even have a skein or two lying around just waiting to be used, you should definitely give these 12 patterns a try!

Another one of my favorite scrubby patterns is the Dahlia Palm Scrubby. Not only is this one pretty to look at, but its unique texture gives it some extra grip and scrubbing power! It also has an optional handle that makes it extra easy to hold and maneuver with. Another thing I like about this one is that it doesn’t use much yarn, so you can make several with just one skein!

10. Loopy Scrubby

Next is another dish scrub pattern: the Loopy Scrubby! This one looks more like a traditional sponge, but with an added textured flair on the underside. This makes it so that the front side is super absorbent, while the back is great for scrubbing! In addition, you can choose to add a loop on the end to make it able to be hung by your sink.
