My friend Melanie had made herself a pretty rad lunch bag out of cool apple-patterned fabric, and I wanted to crochet something for her to match. I found this free Lion Brand crochet pattern for a spiral apple tawashi scrubber, and I thought it’d be a fun thing to use to clean lunch dishes and containers at work.
Using my trusty G crochet hook and some Sugar’n Cream yarn (Melanie likes cotton for crocheted tawashis) in red, green, and brown (sorry, I’m not sure of the exact colors, I lost the outer band around the yarn that tells you all about it), I tried out this interesting pattern. I’d never crocheted a spiral on to a crocheted base before, but it ended up being pretty straight-forward and fun!
Since Halloween was coming up, I decided to make a pumpkin one by using orange yarn instead of red. And I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in orange, green, and brown, because I heard that acrylic yarn is tougher and better mimics commercial dish scrubbers.
Then, I realized I wanted a green one for my kitchen. So I used bright lime green yarn for the spiral part!
So yep, I’ve become slightly obsessed with this pattern. Next, I wanna make the Apple Slice Tawashi Scrubber!
