My Swiffer type pad patttern

Hi!  I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday afternoon.  And if you live in the stormy areas, I hope you come through the storms unscathed.

A while back I wrote a simple crochet pattern for my swiffer.  I hated buying pads for it, and with the economy and jobs as they are now, I decided to share it for free instead of selling the pattern in my Etsy shop or YardSellr shop.

So, here is my pattern for an easily made, washable & reuseable cover for a Swiffer type floor cleaner.

Sugar'n Cream - Duster Cover (crochet) by Gail E and Wendy G - January 2010

This crocheted Duster Cover slips right onto the end of your mop or duster for easy and economical cleaning.


Lily® Sugar’n Cream Ombres  (56.7 g/2 oz/ 86 m/95 yds) 1 ball

Size 5 mm (U.S. H or 8) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge.


Main Piece

Ch 37.

1st row: (RS). 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. 1 sc in each ch across. Turn. 36 sc.

**2nd row: Ch 1. Working in back loop only of each sc, 1 sc in each sc across. Turn.

Rep last row until work from beg measures 4 ins [10 cm]. Fasten off.**

Sides (make 2).

Ch 12.

1st row: (RS). 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook.  Rep from ** to ** in Main Piece.

Join Sides to Main Piece: Place 1 Side at each end of Main Piece and pin outer edges tog. With RS facing, join yarn with sl st in any corner. Ch 1. Work 1 row of sc around outer edge (through both thicknesses of Side and Main Piece at each end), working 3 sc in each corner. Join with sl st to first sc. Fasten off.

Note: Slip each end around the dusting tool’s base. When one side is soiled, flip the side pockets inside-out and use the opposite side to keep cleaning! The ridge stitch design helps trap dirt.

AND - at this site, Suzies Yarnie Stuff , you will find a great Broom Handle Duster pattern that works great on the end of your duster handle.  It gets way up to do away with spider webs, dust, etc.  I make them to match my floor duster cover.  They even make a great gift.

I was thinking of making one of these. You done a great job :) For me I think one of these can make a household chore a pleasure.
