Chevron Scrubby Mitts

 

Chevron Mitt Knitting Pattern for Washing I wanted to share some handy stripey little wash mitts I recently crafted. Textured for the most effective sort of scrubbing, these are made of thirsty, soft cotton. A loop for air drying makes the best sort of sense in both the kitchen and bath! The pattern is written to knit flat and seam, though they’d be easily adapted to knitting in the round.

Materials:
Worsted weight cotton in two colors
Size 4.5 mm, (US 7 ) needles
Size G crochet hook
Darning needle

 Abbreviations:
Kfb: knit in front and back of same stitch
K2tog: knit 2 stitches together
Psso: pass slipped stitch over
Sl: slip stitch

Instructions:

cast on 42 stitches

Row 1: kfb, k8, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k8, kfb twice, k8, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k8, kfb

Row 2: knit

(change color and repeat rows 1 and 2) 14 times

Change color and knit 1 row

K19, bind off next 4 stitches, k19

K19, cast on 4 stitches using the backwards loop method, knit to end of row

Knit another row

Begin Ribbing:

Change color

(knit 1, purl 1 across) x 14 rows

Bind off in ribbing, (knit wise for knit stitches and purl wise for purls), and fasten off, leaving a long tail for seaming.

Seam up side and top edge of mitt using mattress stitch on wrong side.

Using a crochet hook on wrong side, slip stitch to center top of mitt. Pull yarn to right side and chain 12. Pull yarn at end of chain to wrong side, secure with a slip stitch, knot and weave in loose end.

      I think so too, Joan. would be cute paired with some pretty soap for the bath, or with a bottle of All natural dish liquid for the kitchen. I love the Mrs Meyer’s brand – especially their basil scent! Mmmmmm.

    Very nice pattern! I’ve got a ridiculous amount of cotton and this will be a fun pattern to use some of it.

      With your partial skeins, you could have fun with different striping patterns too. I want to make some rainbow ones.

    These are very cute,but I think I will put the loop at the cuff so it is not in the way when I am scrubbing and I just think it looks better with the loop there,but a super,super cute idea and what a lovely little gift with some nice natural soap like one of the other ladies mentioned..thanks for this!

    thanks for your generous gift

    This summer I purchased Dishie Cotton from Knit Picks and knit one dishcloth after another and still have cotton left.

    This is just the project I need – an adventurous project – to use more of the Dishie cotton

    thank you so much for gifting it to us

    hugs

    A friend have me your website to look for ONE thing….I can’t put my computer down! Such cute ideas, so I guess I need to learn more than knit & purl! Thanks so much for the sleep I’m missing ;)

    I’m not a very experienced knitter, so i’m not great at trouble shooting. When i try to follow the first line of the pattern i run out of loops. It appears as though I should cast on 46 instead of 42. Could there be any truth in that, or am i getting something mixed up? Thank you for the pattern!

      Hmmm, or maybe k7 instead of 8 for each set? Or again, i’m just messing up somewhere.

      Hi Lacey! I think you might be getting mixed up somewhere. For the kfb are you knitting in the front and back of the same stitch?

    Thanks for the scrubby mitt pattern! I am making an “everything you ever needed at university for laundry or the bath” gift for my niece as a graduation gift. These are wonderful for the shower/bath! I will be making a few for her. Like these much better than the dishcloth style as a/ they will hang to dry well and b/ they won’t loose their shape as the flat ones do! Thanks!

      You’re welcome, Charlene! Glad they’re working so well for you. I love them for just the same reasons <3

    Would love to see a crocheted version, since crochet is easier for me. Know of any out there? These are so cute.

      Thanks Rita! I don’t know of any crocheted chevron mitts. You might try searching Ravelry
