Dahlia Palm Scrubby - Free Crochet Pattern + Tutorial

Get rid of your kitchen sponges and crochet a scrubby instead! This Dahlia Palm Scrubby is not only so much prettier as a sponge, but it's also machine washable, helping you keep the bacterias away. Not to mention that it works up fast and that you can make several scrubbies from one skein of yarn!

I really love this flower scrubby! It brings a bit of sparkle in my kitchen! :)

TIP: Don’t be afraid to try the Scrubby Sparkle yarn! It is lovely and it's not difficult to crochet with. If you have troubles seeing the stitches while working, just hold the crochet piece up to the light and you’ll see the stitch structure. You can also feel the stitches with your fingers.

The palm scrubby is worked in 2 pieces that are sewn together:
- the dahlia scrubby, worked in rounds
- the hand strap, worked in rows.

You can also leave the dahlia scrubby without the hand strap,  but I found it more comfortable when washing the plates to have the scrubby attached to my palm. It also helps hanging the scrubby over the tap when not in use.  

SIZE: 5” (12.7 cm) diameter

GAUGE: for this project the gauge is not important. Just be sure to use the Scrubby Sparkle yarn for good results.


- Scrubby Sparkle by Red Heart Yarns (from 1 skein you can make several scrubbies!)

- small amount of Scrubby Cotton by Red Heart Yarns (for the hand strap).
This is optional.  You can crochet the hand strap using Scrubby Sparkle also,  but I found the strap comfier made with scrubby cotton. On the other hand, Scrubby Sparkle dries out quicker.

Special Stitch:

dtr5tog or double triple crochet 5 together: [yo hook 3 times, insert hook in the stitch indicated in the pattern, draw loop through, (yo, draw through the first 2 loops, leaving the next loops on hook)x 3  times] x 5 times in the same stitch. You have 6 loops on the hook; yo, draw through all 6 loops on the hook.
( In other words, you will make 5 unfinished double triple crochet sts in same st, leaving each time the last loop on hook, so at the end you'll have 6 loops on hook; yo, draw through all 6 loops on the hook. 
Put another way, you are turning 5 dtr’s into 1 stitch.)

With scrubby cotton ch 6.

Row 1: 1 sc into 2sc ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch across, ch1, turn. ( 5 sts)

Row 2: 1 sc in each st across, ch1, turn. (5 sts)

Repeat row 2 until strap fits snugly but comfortably around the palm of your hand.

Join the short edges of the strap together either by slip stitching them using your crochet hook, or sewing them together with the yarn needle. Cut yarn. Fasten off. Weave in all ends.

Attaching the strap to the scrubby:

Turn the dahlia scrubby with the back side facing you. Pin the strap down across the diameter of the scrubby, so that the sides are symmetrical.

Thread yarn needle with the same yarn as the one used for the scrubby. Being careful not the tack down the petals at the front,  sew the strap securely to the scrubby.

Your dahlia palm scrubby is finished! Now have fun washing your dishes! :)
