Spring Cleaning Day Seven! The Scrubby Swiffer Cover – A Free Crochet Pattern

Welcome to day seven of the Spring Cleaning free crochet pattern blitz! Today I’d like to introduce you to the Scrubby Swiffer Cover!


When Spring come around in our house there is a sure guarantee that there will be mud! As the snow melts and the rain comes, there is no hope for our backyard.  The kids and the dog run in and out leaving my white kitchen floors tracked with a variety of muddy footprints.  So having a mop on hand is a necessity.

I designed this cover to fit snug over my Swiffer Wet Jet.  Having ties instead of the pockets that you often see on crocheted Swiffer Covers means that the spray from the WetJet has ample room to spray through.

The pattern (Except for the ties) is worked holding one strand of RedHeart Scrubby yarn along side of one strand of cotton yarn.  This gives the cover a little extra scrubbing power!
