Reusable Mop Cover

**UPDATED 2/28/2020**

I love to reduce my carbon footprint.  One way I do is in cleaning my home, I use reusable rags, make my own cleaning solution, and make reusable mop covers. Today I am sharing with you my free crochet pattern for making Crocheted Dry/Wet Mop Covers Using Bulky Yarn. How do you reduce your carbon footprint? Let me help you get started.

I use a lot of Bernat Blanket Yarn in my projects. I end up with small balls of yarn and I love making mop covers with them. The yarn is great for scrubbing floors and washes and dries well too. I also have added Scrubby Yarn from Red Heart Yarn to my wet mop to give it a little extra cleaning power. The pattern starts with creating a rectangle and then working around the rectangle in the round to create a stretchy top. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

This pattern is in the Simple Kitchen E-book and all will be released as free patterns however you can find them all in one convenient PDF. Here are the patterns that are included:

Note: I’ll update the links as blog posts are created for each of them

4 x 4 inches = 10 hdc x 6.5 rows of hdc

Notes:
  • Chain 1 does not count as a stitch.
  •  I recommend using bulky yarn but you could use two or three strands of cotton yarn too.
  • To make wet mop cover repeat with the dry pattern but use scrubby yarn with bulky yarn in rectangular part of the pattern.
  • Use a stitch marker at the beginning of row if you need to visually see ch 1.
