Make your own reusable swiffer covers with this quick and easy knitting pattern. These covers can be cleaned in the washer and dryer and used over and over again. A great way to save money and reduce waste too!
Soft fuzzy yarn labeled Size 5 Bulky (such as Bernat Pipsqueak or Red Heart Buttercup)
US size 9 Knitting Needles
Large eye blunt needle for sewing seams
Cast on 22 stitches.
Knit in garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures 10½".
Bind off VERY LOOSELY. Finished piece should be about 8½" x 10½".
To create the Swiffer cover, fold the long edges towards the middle. Sew each of the ends of the piece together. Then sew the long edges together for about 2" toward the middle of each side. This should leave you with an opening of about 6" in the middle for inserting your Swiffer.
My gauge for this project is about 2½ stitches per inch. If you knit a little tighter or looser, simply cast on more or less stitches as needed to get a piece that’s about 8½” wide.The fuzzy types of yarn that work best for this project are usually sold as baby yarns.
