Scrubbie, Tribble, Tawashi

So everyone raves about these adorable little dishcloth scrubbies! (aka Tawashi, aka Tribble) Well, I decided to give one a whirl on Sunday night and it was delightfully easy and quick. Other than trying to figure out how in the world to get it from a flat parallellogram to a scrubbie was beyond me. After looking online and finding the knit version I decided to document my crochet version as a good reference point.

Step 1- complete your parallelogram ending with an odd row. (Pattern called for 21 I think I could only get 19 rows since I ran out of yarn)

Step 2- bring Side 1 and Side 3 together and slip stitch using live yarn

Step 3- Use your long tail end to weave in and out of the edge of side 2 (Repeat for Side 4)

Step 4- Pull the ends tight to close the holes

You can weave the ends back through the other side and make a loop for hanging or just weave the ends in and Voila! a Scrubbie!

Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream, Potpourri
Hook: H Hook
