This tawashi is great as a household scrubber and kitchen sponge replacer. It’s easy, works up super quick, and is ideal for last minute gifts or simply brightening up the home. The pattern has a versatile design that lends well to either solid colors or a flower motif.
The tawashi features a nubby texture with a hanging loop and optional hand strap. It is crocheted in two separate pieces, then joined together with a single crochet border.
The pattern features step-by-step photos.
Recommended hook is US G/4.0 mm, but you may choose to go up one size if you have difficulty making the cluster stitches.
