The Crochet Dry Mop|Swiffer Pad Pattern



Most of us own a swiffer or something similar. I don’t own one now but I do have something from the dollar store that does the same exact thing! As I’m trying to be more eco-friendly in my purchases and what I use around my house, the idea of buying a pad just to throw away is not a-okay with moi. Plus I need a more cost effective option besides spending $4.50 before tax for a box of 16 twice a month on dry pads. I feel like I could buy so much yarn with the $108 I would be saving by making them myself.

As I’m looking for a solution, I grabbed my hook and yarn an went on creating. I mean what else was I gonna do besides crochet me a pad or 2?!? The design is best if you use a cotton or other plant based fiber for it. Blends are also great options.

If you have basic crochet skills, you can make this swiffer pad in no time. It took me less than 30 minutes to make mine and a week to take photos for this blog post…smdh.

Supplies & Notes

  • Written in US crochet terms
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Darning needles
  • Yarn yardage: Less than 100 yards of yarn. Any weight as the pattern is easily adjustable but I would recommend using at a Aran or Worsted weight yarn

My sample is made with Indy fil ecologique by Cheval Blanc. This yarn was gifted to me and is made using a mixture of recycled yarn and ecru cotton threads.
