Why Crocheted Scrubby Patterns?

December 2019 started my crocheted dish cloth craze with the Melted Snowman Scrubby! This year, there's a new crocheted scrubby every month, forever free on the blog. This year-long project will give us a chance to create a new one every month, as well as replace our previous one, but also use up that scrubby yarn we have on hand. Because if you’ve made any before, you know that a little ball of scrubby yarn can make MANY projects! Get those hooks ready because we're already at scrubby #9! Find all scrubby patterns here
