I was browsing OnePrettyThing this week looking for new projects to try when I came across this tutorial on CraftStylish for a Crocheted Swiffer sock. I was so excited by the picture of the dirty sock I just had to make one of my own. The shag like texture is amazing, I wish I could make an entire rug out of this stuff!
I am sort of a novice at crochet, so I opted to use one color of yarn. I have an unnatural obsession with variegated acrylic yarn and I just had to get this blue and brown red heart yarn (earth and sky). The pattern was very easy to follow and I had no trouble whipping this up in an afternoon. There are even pictures of the different steps, and you know how much I like picture tutorials!
It fits snugly, without being difficult to put on. I have enough yarn to make another one to use while this one is in the wash. I don’t know about you, but I have enough acrylic yarn to make a couple of these for everyone I know and still have enough left over for a rainbow afghan! Who knew I would get so excited about making things for cleaning.
