In this tutorial you will learn how to loom knit a scrubby 2 different ways on a round from start to finish. The final width of my scrubby was 4”. Using different yarn, loom gauge, plus other differences will make the width different than mine.

Loom knit scrubby version 1

The first version of the scrubby shown in this photo above is connected in the middle. This version uses the fold over brim method, like when making a fold over brim to a hat.

Loom knit scrubby version 2

Version 2 of the scrubby, the middle is not connected and as shown in the photo, you can pull the sides apart and it forms like an empty ball. This version starts with a drawstring cast on (as shown in the video).

Both version are nice and will work, but if you have a preference, you now have 2 versions of scrubbies to choose from. I’d suggest making one of each and see which one you like best. They are very similar. As noted in the video, if you would like a different sized scrubby, you can use a different size loom, different loom gauge or change the row count.

Please do not copy or distribute this written pattern in any manner.
