Anyone with a Swiffer Sweeper knows just how darn amazing it is.
The only downside to them is that you have to keep buying those the Sweeper pad refills. There is, however, a solution to this.
You can crochet yourself your own reusable Swiffer pads which can be thrown in the washing machine. Here’s how to create the 4 1/2-inch x 10-inch pad you see below.
What You’ll Need:
Kitchen cotton yarn
An “H” hook
Step 1.) Chain stitch 17 stitches to create a chain.
Step. 2) Single crochet into your second stitch from the hook, then single crochet into each of your stitches across your chain.
Step 3.) Turn your chain over and chain one. Single crochet into each stitch across and turn. You’re going to make 16 stitches in each row. Take this step for rows two through nine.
Step 4.) Half double crochet across your row in the front loops only and turn. You’ll do this for 16 stitches for row 10.
Step 5.) Chain two double crochet, then single crochet across and turn. You’ll have 16 stitches in each row. Take this step for rows 11 through 38.
Step 6.) Chain two, then half double chain across in the front loops only and turn. (16 stitches)
Step 7.) Chain one, then single crochet across and turn. (16 stitches) for rows 40 to 48.
Step 8.) Fasten off.
Step 9.) Fold at your half double crotched row on each end. Use a slip stitch, a single crochet, or whipstitch and hook the single crochet and double crochet/slip chain the sections together. This tutorial uses the single crochet for 10 stitches.
