Think of all the money you will save if you take the time to crochet this re-useable cover. We live in such a disposable world we sometimes don't think about all the trash we are adding to the landfills. Being able to wash and reuse not only saves money, it saves the environment.

I have seen similar patterns for these and i think they are a great idea. I have many family members that use swiffer sweepers and mops and anyone who uses them know how costly they can be for the refills. These are perfect because they can just be washed to use again and they seem like they would honestly clean better.

The sweeper cover is a great idea. They are so expensive to buy. The cover is made with cotton yarn which is great for this purpose. The pattern is very simple to follow. I know I am going to make a couple of these for my mop. Great quick and easy project.

I have seen this design idea before and I I think it is such a marvelous idea. I enjoy keeping a clean home and at the time time, I want to be resourceful. Having these sweeper covers and being able to wash and reuse them is a win-win.

I absolutely LOVE this idea!!! I love that it is such an easy pattern, yet also that it's so nice that it is something reusable, instead of having to continually buy the flimsy throw away ones at the store! I love trying new patterns and ideas, but really like it when I find such great use out of an item! Thank you for the pattern! Is the finished product allowed to sell?

I love this Sweeper Cover or Mop pattern! I have made a few of them and use them daily! I only suggest using a thinner yarn. My sweeper also has a vacuum on it and the cover is a little to high for the vacuum to pick up everything. I really like that I'm saving money and when it gets dirty, I just throw it in the washer then the dryer and it comes out great every time. Love this!! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is such an easy pattern to crochet! I have made several of these and just love them. Working into the back loops makes a nice ridge to help with scrubbing. I made mine out of a kitchen or craft cotton and they hold up well and wash up nicely. I suggest air drying for those made with cotton.

#BestIdeaEver This is wonderful! I made a couple so one could always be available - I spill a lot as I am legally blind! Made them from Craft Cotton, very inexpensive - unlike the ones you have to buy in the store!!!

I was going to sew one using an old towel, but this would be much better and a good way to use up leftover yarn!

So easy to make up in a snap and works much better than the flimsy paper I used to pay so much for!

Just made this and love it! Fun to make. I agree about checking to be sure that the measurements fit with first row. I tend to crochet rather tight, so had to make a bit of an adjustment.

I like this! Before I came across the pattern I tried one on my own, it turned out ok. I don't like to single crochet so I used hdc and it worked out just fine. This pattern is a keeper!

One suggestion for this. If you have the kind of mop with openings in front to spray out cleaning solution you can do this. In the 3rd or 4th row of front sides leave 2 stitches unworked in the spot where the holes are on your mop, chain 2 in place of sc. This allows the solution to spray out better. You will have to line up the front sides with your mop as you make it.

Cute idea. I could use this but can't get the link to the pattern to connect.

Great, just what I was looking for! I recommend checking after your first row to make sure the length is right for your mop as this was a little too long for mine and I need to use a shorter chain.
