This project was inspired by a request for a pattern from
Mariko’s web log found at www.supereggplant.com. It is
based on a pattern from a Japanese web site and translated
based on pictures only. The dishcloth pattern, is my version
of the “traditional” pattern to make a set.

1 skein (2 oz) Sugar ‘n Cream
Any worsted weight yarn may be
substituted for varying results.

Seam together CO and BO edges. Draw a string through the slipped sts of one edge, pull tightly and secure. Repeat

• A two-color version can be created by alternating colors every two rows.
The Scrubby is often done in acrylic yarn, as it appears to have more scrubbing power!
