Scrubby-O Tip~

I told you I’d be back soon!

During our annual Package in the Post gift exchange, my gift sent included one brand new item (woohoo…so excited to share!) and a Scrubby-O! (pattern available here and video tutorials available here)

How fun is that??

This Scrubby-O is just a bit different from the others I’ve made, as it has alternating colored wedges!  I thought it would be a good thing to pass along the tips to making one of these pinwheel type Scrubby-O’s directly onto all of you, in case you’d like to do the same….

First of all, you’ll need to have 2 different colors of cotton (that’s fairly obvious, lol). You’ll need to begin your CO by holding 2 strands of the first color along with your strand of tulle.

When you’ve completed Row #9 in the first wedge, you’ll drop the original color without cutting, CO 2 strands of the contrasting color, and holding along with the tulle, proceed with Row #10.  This will all happen on the left side of your knitting, so that the colors are switched to the inside of the scrubby and no cutting is needed between wedges…easy peasy! 🙂

When you’re ready to repeat the wedge instructions, just continue with Row #1 using the new color you’ve just CO…changing colors again when you’ve completed Row #9.

When you’ve completed all eight wedges of contrasting colors, you’ll BO and finish as usual…although you will have 2 additional sets of tails to weave in.  😉

That’s it!  You’ll now have a super cuteness Pinwheel Scrubby-O!

This is what the gift I sent away looked like when it was ready to be packaged…

Do you spot the new item???  Yep!  It’s a Loom Knit Oven Mitt! 😀

I’m going to be working up a pattern very soon for you all to try out… after all, you still have time to whip up a couple of these as Christmas presents if you hurry… We may even work on this together as a loom along in the Gettin’ It Pegged Chat Clique!

So, off I go to do some typing and some pattern writing…have a fun filled Friday!

    Wahooo! That is so cool looking! Can’t wait to make some more Scrubbie-O’s for everyone for Christmas 🙂 If I have the time… I’m going to make that oven mitt for my favorite cook… my hubby!
    Thanks, Bethany 🙂

  3. Love the pinwheel scrubbie, Bethany 🙂 And the oven mitt is too cool! I think it would make for a fabulous loom along. Hugs!

    Hi i just wanted to say i love your scrubby-o’s paddern! It is really helpfull that you have a step by step video!! they are fast and easy to make!! I never thought i could do it. But your video is easy to fallow. But i have a question on one of your other padderns. On your raffie handbag pattern once again it is easy for me to fallow. I just wanted to know what a 1 button-on-bag #9850 in Nat is? And where i can find one? Thanks for your help Tiffany!

    Hello Tiffany! 🙂

    I’m so glad you enjoyed the Scrubby-O pattern and videos…they’re a big favorite of many, including me! 😉

    As for the button-on bag, it was a specific bag that was just a shell and could be embellished…they had been available at Michaels Crafts (not sure if it still is or not) and is pictured here in the upper right hand corner: http://www.dritz.com/brands/bagboutique/index.php

    I hope you can locate one, or if not, the pattern should work for many other type bags of the same size and style with just a few adjustments.

    Thanks for the step to step video on your Scrubby O’s. I have been making them for a couple of years. I just love them. My sister is coming over in a couple of days. I will be showing her your video and show her how to make them. She wants to make them with her daughter’s girl scout troop. It will be lots of fun.
