Crochet Swiffer Cover Pattern and Tutorial

Happy Earth Day everyone! In celebration, I decided to come up with a pattern for a reusable swiffer cover, to prevent excess waste from using disposable liners. It’s very easy and a beginner should be able to manage it.

Swiffer Cover Pattern

You’ll need:

Worsted weight cotton yarn (I used less than one ball of Lily Peaches and Cream.)
H hook
Yarn needle.

HDC: Half double crochet
SC: single crochet
Ch: Chain

Make a chain that measures 15 inches long. For me this was 57 stitches, but it will vary based on your gauge.

Row 1: Hdc in second chain from hook. Hdc in each remaining stitch. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2-14: Hdc in each st across. Ch1, turn. Repeat this row, until you piece is 4 1/2 inches tall.

When it measures 15 inches by 4 1/2 inches, you are done repeating rows.

Fold over each end by 2 1/2 inches.

Putting hook between both layers, sc to the edge. 3 sc in corner stitch. Sc down the side and 3sc in next corner. Working through both layers again, sc all the way along the long side. In the middle you will only be going through one layer. 3sc in corner, and sc up side. 3sc in corner and again sc through both layers. Sl in first sc. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Happy cleaning, and Happy Earth Day!!!

    Thank you. I don't use a swiffer ,but I'd love to share this idea. The swiffer bottles are reusable too. You dip them in HOT water for ten seconds twist off lid, then clip off the locking tabs with nail clippers. Voila!

    I found this pattern to be too small…I ended up with a baby Swiffer cover lol! I did use acrylic yarn so not sure if that was the reason. I also tend to be a tighter crocheter but my cover was about 5 inches too short.
