DIY: How to Cut Netting for Crocheting Dish Scrubbies in 4 Easy Steps!






A couple of day ago I sat down in the floor and spread out my netting I use for crocheting dish scrubbies.   After doubling the yard I started cutting the  long strips.  Realizing the netting would not stay together I ended up cutting them in single strips. Finally I got it done and pulled myself off the floor (with the help of a chair). That's when I knew I had to find a different way.  

After brainstorming a little I finally came up with a solution that works for me. I hope it helps you too.

1. Start at with the short end of the netting.  I used close to a yard of netting.

2.  Roll up the netting like a jelly or cinnamon roll.  Try to keep ends even.

3.  Cut into strips the width you like to work with. Try to keep the ends even.  Don't worry though, if you are like me, you will not be able to do this perfectly.

  You will then have many little rolls.

4.  Start making a ball and tie a knot to connect the strips.


This method has made cutting the strips so much faster and easier. I can now get to the fun part of crocheting the scrubbies.  

Tip:  The last strip no matter what I do always comes out uneven but I just tie them in a knot and use them anyway.  Small price to pay for a faster way of doing things.  

Have you figured out a quick way to cut the netting used for Crocheting Dish Scrubbies?
