How to Crochet 'Protect My Nails' Scrubby Pattern with hosiery yarn
This is my way of doing household chores without ruining my nails. This is my own design using hosiery yarn but it can be made with all types of yarn (e.g. plarn/plastic yarn or tarn/t-shirt yarn or just regular acrylic or fiber yarn)
Make 2 panels. Use size G hook or any hook of choice. This pattern can be made with any type of yarn.
Chain (ch) 13 or number of chains needed to measure across all 4 fingers pressed together.
Row 1: Half double crochet (hdc) across to end, ch2 turn.
Row 2: Hdc in back loop (bl) only across to end, ch2 turn.
Repeat this step until panel measures from tip of fingers to top of hand or desired length. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Put wrong sides together at lower corner (right or left, you choose) single crochet (sc) through both panels in corner stitch and in each stitch across to next corner. Make 3 sc in corner and a sc in each stitch across to next corner. Make 3 sc in corner and a sc in each stitch across to opposite lower corner.
Fasten off and weave in all ends. It's ready to use when you are.
Tips & Warnings
The beauty of this pattern is its versatility. You can get as creative as you want. For example, one panel can be made with soft yarn and the other panel can be made with hosiery or plastic yarn for tougher cleaning jobs.
