I loved these spiral scrubbies from the moment I saw them. They are also good as dishcloths, wash cloths, and tawashi. These crocheted items are great for beginners and advanced users and make wonderful gifts for babies, children, even adults.
I asked Ms. Judith Prindle, the author of the pattern, back in 2009 if I could make a video of her scrubbies. And she said yes. I was thrilled!
I’ve had a lot of questions over the years about the pattern, so be sure to check the section below the video for a listing of frequently asked questions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q. Can I use nylon netting?
A. Yes! It works great. So do the newer scrubbie yarns.
Q. What size hook are you using? What type of yarn?
A. H (5 mm hook). I’ve made these with many different types of yarn over the years. But Sugar n Cream 100% cotton yarn is what I used for the sample photos you see on my video and website.
Q. Can I make the scrubbie bigger?
A. You can make a scrubbie bigger and still use the same pattern by doing a few things.
- You can use a larger crochet hook, which will increase the size of each stitch – thereby increasing the final product.
- You can use thicker yarn (or even double the yarn) – thus also increasing the final product.
- You can use a thicker yarn and a larger crochet hook.
- You can also modify the pattern – perhaps add 5 chains at the beginning row and add 5 more rows to the pattern.
