Reusable Crocheted Swiffer Cover

Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi) ?
3 stitches = 1 inch in single crochet
5.0 mm (H)

This pattern was created to help cut down from using disposable Swiffer covers. The nubby crochet helps to pick up dirt and animal hair, and you can just throw it in the washer when you are done!

EDIT: My website is currently down. I am copy and pasting this from the google cache - no pics, but the details are there.

Reusable Crocheted Swiffer Cover

I love my Swiffer, but I hate the disposable covers that come with it. I have crocheted about a dozen covers out of leftover Sugar n Cream yarn, and they work amazingly well! Just put them on the Swiffer, wet them down, and use them, or you can just use them dry for dust and animal fur. After you are done, take them off, and throw them in the washer, and then reuse!

My Swiffer measures 9 1/4 inches around and 10 inches wide, I think that is the size of a typical Swiffer. After a wash, though, they shrink and need to be stretched to be put back on the Swiffer, but this makes for a nice, snug fit, which is great for scrubbing the floors.

Now, on to the pattern:

Reusable Crocheted Swiffer Cover Pattern

Gauge: 3 sc / 1 in

Cotton Yarn Scraps
Size H Crochet Hooks
Darning Needle
Measuring Tape

Chain 15 st. Skip 1 st, sc in each ch for a total of 14 st. Continue making a strip of fabric 14 st wide for a length of 15 inches. I tend to stretch the fabric every few inches so the cover will have a firm fit on the Swiffer. When you reach this length, finish off the chain and fold over each side 2.5 inches on each side like this:

And then sew each edge with a whip stitch like this:

Weave in all your loose ends, and then flip the “pockets” on the ends so the sewn edges are on the inside, and then put on your Swiffer and then use!
