"This textured scrubber is great for washing dishes, without scratching delicate finishes. Made with machine washable cotton, these should last a lot longer than store bought sponges. The optional top flap makes a little pocket that you can slip your fingers into. This pattern works up quickly, so you can make a whole set in no time. Be sure to make some extras for gifts too!"

This is such a great idea. I have several scrubbies, and especially for the little ones, those darn things can be awfully hard to hold on to. I know when my husband grabs a dish or bowl to wash out, he complains about the size scrubbies I have at the sink. It only makes sense since his hands are larger than mine. Im going to work this up so hell now have his very own.

This is a great idea. There are so many scratchy pads that will damage your nice pots and pans, this would be a great alternative. If you decide not to add the top flap on this, I am not sure it would work as nicely. The appeal for me is the top flap, to keep your fingers in the scrubby.

I think that this is genius. There are times when I really need to get into the nooks and crannies and this is a great way to do it. I only wish there was a way to place a scrubbing brush. I guess if I put a little baking soda, that will be the best I can get.

I love to use a sponge for washing dishes. However, I am liking the design of this scrubby as you can place it over the fingers. I do not think it will replace my sponge but I am sure it will find a home on the window seal above my kitchen sink. Grabbing some cotton yarn now.

I love that this scrubby doesn't use the scrubby yarn like most of the patterns, but uses 100% cotton instead. I also love how the triple crochets make the little nubbs. And, because it's less abrasive, this would make a great bath time cloth for little ones and it is small enough for them to hold their selves. It also would also work great for dishes and countertops.

I love this idea! Very easy pattern to follow and the designer gives you a couple of video links for the stitches you will be making. You can make this little scrubby with or without the little flap for your fingers. Try using the Red Heart Scrubby yarn for a more abrasive texture.

Such a cute idea. And after reading the instructions I can see it's very easy. I should be able to turn out a bunch. And I may do some in Christmas colors and use them as gift card holders. This is a very versatile pattern. Thank you for sharing it.
