This fresh peppermint scrubby is almost too pretty to be used to clean those dirty grimy dishes. The design is very similiar to the little peppermints that are very popular during the winter holidays. This can be completed in seven rounds and there is even a hanging loop included.

Does anyone know how many scrubbies I can make with one red and once coconut Red Heart Scrubby yarn? Can I get at least two out of it? I would like to try this yarn, as I have walked past it every time I shop at Michaels. I am making a holiday dishcloth trio set for a friend, and I think the scrubbies would be a nice addition to the entire gift.

Another very seasonal but very beautiful Fresh Peppermint Scrubby project. I'm reminded of a round afghan with the same design and candy cane, too. Red and white is always very attractive and elegant.

Peppermint candy is everyones favorite. This Fresh Peppermint Scrubby pattern is a great idea to bring happiness to the kitchen. No need to ask for dish washers, all would want to use this scrubby and help with the dishes. Before you know it, dishes are done! Would be a great gift for a mom with kids.

I tend not to work projects with the Red Heart Scrubby yarn because its so much more expensive per yard than regular worsted yarns. But this one doesnt take that much yarn, and since I have a couple of 60% off coupons for JoAnns and Im headed to the mall this afternoon anyway, might as well kill two birds with one stone, eh?
