For this tutorial I broke it into two parts to allow you pick where you needed more assistance. Part 1 will show you how to make the center 3D portion of the flower. Tips and tricks for using the Scrubby yarn are also included in part 1. Part 2 continues the pattern and shows you how to make and attach the background square of the motif.
Scrubby started out offering one version that is a polyester yarn. This is great because it dries much faster than cotton yarn so that there is less of a chance of the yarn going sour. After such a great response of Scrubby Original, Red Heart came out with Scrubby Sparkle. Now Red Heart has launched Scrubby Cotton to give all of the cotton lovers out there the ability to use the textured yarn of Scrubby for all of your washcloth and dishcloth patterns. You’ll enjoy the all-cotton fiber and how it gets softer when wet. And it washes easily by machine!
Some choose not to make their own washcloths and dishcloths but find that they like the motifs that are made. In the video I used Red Heart Baby Hugs Lite to show you the pattern. Since Scrubby has the texture that we talked about and is harder to see the stitches I wanted to show you the steps with something you could actually see. By using an alternate yarn you can turn any square motif into a blanket easily. All you need to do is make multiples of them and seam them together when you are finished. This allows you to adjust the size to your specific needs.
