1. Scrubby is worked back and forth in rows with color changed at end of every other row.
2. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color. Work over tails to minimize weaving in.
3. Scrubby is intended for frequent use and washing. Designer recommends tying tails together at color change to prevent unravelling.
