Swiffer Sweeper Cover

Having wood floors opened my eyes to how fast dust and hair can appear everywhere!! Buying box after box of dry and wet sheets for my Swiffer has been very expensive and yet I would still end up on my hands and knees hand washing the floors. Shortly after crocheting this YARNTASTIC cover for my Swiffer I had to try it out. I am amazed and in love! It not only does a fantastic job with dust and hair but it also gets all of the little things the sheets leave behind. This Cover is machine washable, reversible, and reusable! Can it get much better than that??

Abbreviations:

CH – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
FPDC – Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC – Back Post Double Crochet

Don’t know how to do the FPDC or BPDC?  Watch this video and you will! :)

Supplies:

4 ply Cotton Yarn (I used Peaches & Creme, a little more than one ball of yarn)
5 mm  Crochet Hook

Get Started! 

CH 23

Row 1: CH 2, DC in third CH from hook, DC down the rest of the chain

Rows 2-41: Turn, CH2, *FPDC in the first stitch, BPDC in the next stitch*
repeat from * across, DC in last stitch

Finish off

Fold crocheted rectagle on the 7th row from each end. Stitch the sides together creating a pocket on both ends.

Wah-Lah!

    This is great! I have a large hairy dog that I sweep up after constantly. I go through so many swiffer sheets and I was about to go back to the old school broom to save money, then I came across this! LOVE it! Thank you :)

      I have a hairy dog too and with these wood floors it is so hard to keep up with his hair. My only problem is that I have only made one of these.. I need to make more but its always so hard to choose what to crochet next. lol

    I have a Newfoundland…definitely gonna make a few of these!

    BTW – it’s voila, not wah-lah (pronounced vwalah)

    Could you clarify the pattern? You start Ch 23, then Row 1 you say to Ch 2 and dbl crochet in the 3rd chain. So is it Ch 25 and dbl crochet in the 3rd chain or is the Ch 2 an error. How many stitches are in each row of dbl crochet? Thanks!

      If it says to CH 2, then CH 2. I have not worked this pattern in almost a year so I am not sure. Next time I work it I will write out everything a little better. Sorry for the confusion.

    I’m very curious to read the results of someone trying this on the Wet Jet. Yarn tends to stretch when it’s wet so I’m wondering about it shifting around on the mop end when being used.

    I have made this, but revised the ends. I sc for the first 7 stiches and last 7 stitches (didn’t want to use more yarn than needed, hdc could also be used. Then I only attached one end of each side (reversed side on other end), crocheted tabs, attached lady bug buttons to end piece for the tabs to button to. (I was afraid ends would stretch out eventually……also this makes it easier for us senior citizens to put on). The friend I made it for absolutely loves it!
