These pads are awesome for other uses as well. They make great washcloths for dishes or other household cleaning and they are AMAZING to use when washing the car. Washable and multipurpose!
Just press edges into the cloth holders on your Swiffer Sweeper and sweep away. If you want to use it as a wet mop, simply soak in your favored floor cleaner, wring out, and attach to your Swiffer Sweeper. (I also like to use a spray bottle and spray my cleaner on the floor and start with a dry pad. It works just as good as soaking it!)
Size H/8-5.00MM Crochet hook
Cotton Yarn. (I used 1 ball of Peaches and Cream brand in Bright Pink for the one pictured.)
Puff Stitch: This stitch is also often also called a popcorn stitch. To work this stitch, *YO, ( yarn over) insert hook into st, YO, pull through st* 5 times (Other patterns might use less than 5 for the puff st but this pattern needs the added bulk) YO, pull through all but the last loop on hook, YO pull through both loops on hook.
As you work this pattern you may feel like the pad is going to be slightly too small. As long as you are using cotton yarn and size H hook, I wouldn't worry too much about it. After adding the edge and after the stitches relax a bit it will fit just fine. If you crochet a bit tight or are using a smaller hook, you may have to either use a larger hook or adjust the chain count in Rnd: 1.
Rnd 1: Ch 31, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.
Rnd 2-5: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rnd 6: Ch 1, turn, sc in next 2 sts, *puff st in next st, sc in next st* across ending with 1 sc in each of the last 3 sts.
Rnd 7: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rnd 8: Ch 1, turn sc in next 3 sts, *puff st in next st, sc in next st* across ending with 1 sc in each of the last 2 sts.
Rnd 9: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Repeat Rows 6-9 three more times.
Rnd 10-12: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. DO NOT FASTEN OFF
Edge: Ch 1, turn sc in each st and row around working 3 sc in each corner. Join with a sl st to first sc of edge, fasten off and weave in ends.
