Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Check Scrubbie

By Candace – 1 Comment
It can be hard to find a project for variegated yarns with short color repeats, so sometimes it’s best to think small and simple. A square scrubbie with a checkerboard pattern fits the bill quite nicely. This pattern requires some knowledge of Tunisian crochet. Be sure to use the chart linked below to brush up on abbreviations if you need it. crochet_tunisian_square_scrubbie
