After some research as well as trial and error, I've finally managed to come up with a swiffer cover pattern. Yay! Please keep in mind that this pattern will also fit on the Swiffer Wet Jet, but it will cover up the spray nozzles. I no longer purchase the swiffer cleaning liquids. I use a bleach cleaning spray instead. So it works out just fine for me.
So here it is...
- less than 1 ball of 100% cotton yarn (I used Lily Sugar 'n Cream)
- H hook (5.00mm)
- yarn needle
ch(s) = chain(s)
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
fpdc = front post double crochet
bpdc = back post double crochet
st(s) = stitch(es)
sl st = slip st
Ch 57 (You want it to measure 15 inches, so if your tension is tighter or looser than mine, you might need to change your amount of chs.)
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across. (55 dc)
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, dc in next 8 sts, fpdc around next st, *dc in next st, fpdc around next st*, repeat from * to * 18 times, dc in next 9 sts.
Row 3: Ch 2, turn, dc in next 8 sts, bpdc around next st, *dc in next st, bpdc around next st*, repeat from * to * 18 times, dc in next 9 sts.
Row 4: Repeat row 2.
Row 5: Repeat row 3.
Row 6: Repeat row 2.
Row 7: Repeat row 3.
Row 8: Repeat row 2.
Row 9: Repeat row 3.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Fold end over so that sts 1-9 overlap sts 10-18. Insert hook in both sts (sts 9 and 10) at beginning, sc over both sts and in next 8 overlapped sts, sc in next 19 sts, fold over other end and sc over next 9 overlapped sts. Fasten off and weave in ends. Rotate work to opposite site and repeat this process (flaps will already be overlapped), ensuring that you sc over 9 times over the 18 overlapping sts.
I know the end of the pattern can be kind of confusing, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. :)
I hope you enjoy this Go Green! pattern.
