Reusable Swiffer Sock Crochet Pattern + GIVEAWAY


Happy Easter!
This post is brought to you by my amazing Mom, She is super talented at quilting and crocheting and she told me I could share this crochet pattern for a Reusable Swiffer Sock with you guys!
If you or someone you know own a swiffer, you might want to consider making this! Instead of purchasing a package of disposable swiffer cloths, once you make your swiffer a sock, you can just wash it off and use it again! 
You can even make it in cute colors!
---Here's the pattern---

Materials:

  • Small amount of worsted-weight (CYCA size 4) acrylic yarn in two colors
  • Size H (5mm) hook
  • Yarn needle
Abbreviations:
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
sl st: slip stitch
st: stitch
FL: front loop
dec: decrease
RS: right side
Pattern
Chain 33.
Row 1:
Dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch across, turn—31 dc.
Row 2 (RS): With next color, *ch 4, sl st in FL of next st; repeat from * across, turn—30 ch-4 loops.
Row 3: Working in FL, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next st and each st across, turn—31 dc.
Rows 4–15: Repeat rows 2 and 3, changing colors every 2 rows (if desired), turn—31 sts.
After turning on last row, you'll begin working in the round.
Round 1: With 1st color, ch 1, sc around the edge of the rectangle, working 1 sc into top or bottom of each dc and 2 sc into sides of sts, and working 2 sc in each corner st, join with a sl st to first sc—98 sts.
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join.
Round 3: Ch 1, *sc in next 7 sc, decrease over next 2 sc; rep * twice, sc in each sc until 2 sts before corner, (decrease over next 2 stitches) 12 times or as many times as necessary to work up short side until 2 stitches past short side**; repeat from * to ** once more to complete the round, join with a sl st in first sc—68 sts.
Round 4: Ch 1, *sc in next 6 sc, decrease over next 2 sc; rep * twice, sc in each sc until 2 sts before corner, (decrease over next 2 stitches) six times or as many times as necessary to work up short side until 2 stitches past short side**; repeat from * to ** once more to complete the round, join with a sl st in first sc—50 sts.

  1. I reuse coffee cups I get from coffee shops. I rinse them out and make a cup to go from home. I feel a little less guilty about waste if I get a second use. I would like to bring my own container to a coffee shop.

  2. What a good idea! I make recycled notebooks--I think you know that. =P I also use empty jars (like pickle, peanut butter, etc.) as cups and in place of tupperware.

  3. I am saving water at home and use it only when I truly need it. Prefer to read ebooks instead of paper once.

  4. I used items that would otherwise be headed to the trash for crafting such as old t-shirts and jeans, plastic bottles and caps, cardboard, etc.

  5. I use cloth rags for cleaning instead of paper towels and keep a bin of them in the kitchen to help my roomies use them too.
