This just adds fuel to the flame of my desire to start knitting again! I never thought of knitting with twine, but it makes total sense to get the end result of a great pot scrubber!
Here’s what you need:
common garden, hemp or linen twine found in most hardware stores
Size 7 needles
Heavy black thread
Directions: Cast on 12 stitches. Garter stitch until you form a square. Cast off. Sew it closed with blanket stitch in contracting heavy black thread. Stuff with wool. Wool is resistant to water and naturally anti-bacterial. A piece of natural or synthetic sponge would work too.
