Scrubby Yarn

We have new yarn!  This Scrubby yarn by Red Heart is fuzzy and soft and comes in a variety of colors.  It's the perfect yarn for a washcloth.  There's knit instructions on the inner label but you can just as easily crochet it too.  Adjust the instructions and make it to the size you want. 

I crocheted one and knitted one from one skein and still had yarn left over to make a another one!  These are easy projects for beginners because it can be made with just one type of stitch.  I made mine into squares.

For the knitters: Cast on the width you want.  Knit stitch across. Turn and continue to knit stitch across in rows until you get the length you want.

For the crocheters:  Chain stitch the width you want.  Turn and half-double crochet in each chain across. Turn and continue to half-double crochet in rows until you get the length you want.

This yarn can be used for fuzzy stuffed animals, sweaters, scarves or even lei.  Hmm... I'm going to have to consider all of these possibilities!

Scrubby on my mind!
