A little pattern

I'm horrified how often I've posted this year. In fairness, I'm posting more in other places as my professional life moves online. But still, this is the easy stuff, right? So to make up for it a little, I'm sharing a pattern of mine. I know there are tons of other patterns for this kind of thing out there so I don't claim to be original but this one works great for me and everyone that sees it wants me to make them one. This works so much better than the ones you buy in the store. SO much better! and you can wash it. I use this on both the regular and Wet Jet Swiffer. I prefer this to the Wet Jet because I can use really hot water to break up the crud and the floor dries quicker.

This takes a single skein of the Sugar & Cream cotton. One skein will give you two mitts. Here is a printer-friendly version of the pattern.

Swiffer Mitt

CO 58 st

Row 1, 2, 3 knit

Row 4 purl

Row 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 knit

Row 10 purl

Repeat rows five through ten 6 more times

Row 40, 41, 42 43 knit

Bind off

Fold the ends over 2 inches and sew along the top edges leaving a pocket for the Swiffer.
