Mop or Sweeper Cover

By:

23 Comments

Instead of using disposable covers, crochet an economical reusable cover for your flat mop, sweeper or duster. The cover easily slips on and off for cleaning. For the knit version of this cover, see the Mop Cover Knitting Pattern.

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.

This is a clever idea. Good way to use up some scraps and save a few bucks too.

I LOVE THIS pattern! I saw it do with the knitting but I don't knit, so I tried to work up my own pattern for it. Did ok but I like this one better! I dislike single crochet so I used a hdc and love it. Thanks a lot!

What a great idea. Saves you money and no doubt will pick up dust feathers as well as the store bought covers.
