Special Stitches

  • hdc2tog: [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop] 2 times, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook.
  • Beg-Fhdc (Beginning foundation half double crochet): Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the “chain”); yarn over and draw through 3 loops on hook (the “half double crochet”).
  • Fhdc (foundation half double crochet): *Yarn over, insert hook into the “chain” of the previous stitch and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the “chain”); yarn over and draw through 3 loops on hook (the “half double crochet”). Repeat from * for each Fhdc.
  • sc2tog: [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
  • sc3tog: [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.



Special Technique

  • Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.



  1. Scrubby is worked in continuous (spiral) rounds with right side facing.
  2. Scrubby is intended for frequent use and washing. Designer recommends tying tails together at color change to prevent unraveling.
  3. 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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The colors and pattern caught my attention but when I read the comments I was concerned. That went away when I looked at the revised pattern. Step by step images are always so helpful. Looks easy enough to follow. If I try, this would be my first attempt making a scrubby dish cloth.

Far out! Thank you so much Julia for the update. Now, I might be able to finish my project. I am glad to see that you guys are on the ball and keep everything updated. Kudos to you. I cant wait to make these groovy flowers to decorate my kitchen!

Apologies to everyone trying to figure this out - Red Heart has updated this pattern on the website, so I was able to update the pattern text and add a step-by-step image of round 4. I hope this helps, and sorry for any previous confusion! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Me three, can't figure it out

I am having trouble with round 4 of this pattern where you start the fhdc. I end up with something that isn't attached to the circle. I've looked for a video but didn't find any.I'm really starting to feel stupid. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I want to finish this project . I think it is so pretty.

I could not figure it out either.. the instructions make no sense. So don't feel stupid. It is a cute pattern though
