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
Worsted weight cotton yarn (I used less than one ball of Lily Peaches and Cream.)
HDC: Half double crochet
SC: single crochet
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!!!
