A simple, easy round scrubby crochet pattern that works incredibly well! This pattern is super fun and it only takes me about 8 minutes to work up.
I’ve been totally into crocheted scrubbies and dishcloths lately. I’m going to be doing some craft fairs for the first time (eek!) so I thought I needed some quick and easy patterns that will hopefully sell well.
One of the patterns I came up with is this round scrubby! I’m hoping these little guys do well at markets. Since they work up so dang fast, they’re great for this purpose.
But they’re also great if you just need a few extra scrubbies in your kitchen too! 🙂
How do you crochet a round scrubby?
As the name suggests, round scrubbies will be crocheted in the round, increasing outward to make them larger. For this specific pattern, we will start with a round of double crochet, and then two rounds of simple single crochet.
Like I mentioned, super quick and easy! The only techniques you’ll need to know to make these are simple stitches, working in the round, and increasing.
And if you’re a beginner, don’t worry because I have you covered with a step by step video tutorial too.
What material is used to make scrubbies?
Scrubbies can be made from a variety of different yarns and materials. Usually scrubby yarns are made from either cotton, polyester, or nylon.
In the case of this pattern, we will be using a specific yarn called Yarn Bee Scrubology. When I first discovered this yarn, I immediately fell in love! It is a thick, durable scrubby yarn and you can easily see the stitches while you make them – unlike red heart scrubby yarn.
(If you do have some red heart scrubby laying around though, you’ll want to check out this pattern which uses it instead!)
I hope you love these guys as much as I do! But without further ado, let’s get straight into the free scrubby crochet pattern.

Step by Step Tutorial for Beginners
If you are new to crochet and need some visual help, you’ll want to keep reading! This is a photo tutorial for how to crochet a scrubby step by step.
To start off, make your chain 3. Make 1 double crochet in the third chain from your hook:
Now we are going to make more stitches into that SAME chain space to form a round. Make 9 more double crochet into the same chain so that you have 10 total:
To finish round 1, join with a slip stitch to the first dc you made. Then, ch 1 to start round 2 and make 2 sc in the next dc:
Continue around by making 2 single crochet in every stitch (for a total of 20 stitches).
Join round two with a slip stitch to the first single crochet you made.
Round 3 will be exactly the same as round 2. Ch 1, and make 2 single crochets in every stitch around. This time you will have a total of 40 stitches at the end.
How to start using your scrubbies right away
There you go, your scrubby is all done, and in just 3 rounds too! To get started using these guys, just throw them in your sink for your next dish-washing session. They can be used to get lots of stuff off of even the dirtiest dishes!
One thing you will want to keep in mind is that Scrubology yarn is supposed to be hand-washed and dried flat. So instead of throwing these scrubbies in the washer with your other laundry, you’ll want to find other ways to wash them.
Since handwashing a scrubby isn’t very practical, I tested throwing them in the dishwasher. They held up just fine! After taking them out of the dishwasher, I just wring them out, re-shape them, and let them dry on the counter. Easy and practical!
Round scrubbies are both beautiful and functional in the kitchen. I use mine everyday and you can too! I hope you liked this crochet pattern and have some new scrubbies to make dish-washing more fun. 🙂
