Scrub It Scrubby Yarn Review and Scrubbies Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Scrub It Scrubby Yarn Review 
and Scrubbies Crochet Pattern

 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs



I was in Hobby Lobby For the 30% Off Sale on yarn.
I love The "I Love This Yarn" Acrylic, 
it is very soft and the colors are amazing.
After I put what I needed in my cart, 
I noticed this Yarn.



It is Yarn Bee, a Hobby Lobby Brand called

SCRUB-OLOGY SCRUB IT!
I purchased the Lemon and Blue Thistle
Each skein has 3 oz. It is 100% Nylon.
I Love that, because most scrubbies that are cotton or 
cotton blend, tend to hold onto the smell.
The texture is similar to the scrubbies made from cut tulle, 
but not quite as scratchy.



I made a few basic Scrubbies and tried them out.
I made them 2 layers crocheted together, 
and a loop for hanging to dry.
I really, really like them. 
They are strong and durable for sticky messes,
And Do Not Stink!
  All the colors are amazing. 
I will definitely be picking up more colors.

***If you would like to try this pattern using cotton, 
cotton Blend or acrylic yarn, use 2 strands of yarn held together. 
And it will Work just fine.****

Scrapilicious Granny Blanket Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Scrapilicious Granny Blanket
 Crochet Pattern 
 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs 


Almost on a daily basis, I get asked, "I have a bunch
 of yarn leftovers, what can I make with them?"

This blanket is a great way to use up all those scraps
 in your yarn stash, and make something useful.
You can use solids, stripes or variegated.
What ever you have left from previous projects.

For Best Results I recommend holding 3 Strands of (4)
 And I would stick with the same fiber content.

The Pattern is stitched using 3 strands of worsted weight
 (4) yarn held together, and a big 10.00 MM.
And is a rectangle granny Square, and A Simple Single Crochet Trim. 
It measure about 36 X 44 if made like the pattern,
 But you can make it as big as you like.
It makes a heavy warm blanket or mat.
