When using nylon netting to crochet a dish scrubbie, cut it within the perimeter into a long strip 2 inches wide, and make a ball out of the strip. Begin crocheting by making a loop in the cotton yarn or nylon netting strip and inserting the crochet hook into it. Then, pull the hook through the loop to make a chain stitch. Continue making the required number of chain stitches in this manner. A scrubbie measuring 2 inches requires 13 chain stitches. Next, make a single crochet stitch in the back loops of all of the chain stitches. Make one chain, and turn the piece.

Crochet 12 to 14 more rows in this manner to give the scrubbie a square shape. To make a rectangular scrubbie, crochet fewer rows, or increase the number of chain stitches. Alternatively, single crochet beginning at chain stitch three, repeat for all of the chain stitches, chain three, and turn the project. In the next row, make a single crochet stitch in the upper loop of the single crochets in the earlier row. Repeat the step until the scrubbie attains a length of 6 inches. To finish the scrubbie, snip the yarn or strip leaving a tail of 2 inches, pull it through the final loop, and weave the tail into the stitches.
