Have you seen these cool spiral scrubbies yet?  I just love it's unique look. You crochet a flat piece and then gather up the ends to create the round spiral shape. Here are two that I crocheted with cotton. The red and green one has recycled lettuce netting added for extra scrubbing power.

What a neat idea! How well do they hold up when you scrub with them? I'd be afraid of them falling apart when I used them...

I just started using my spiral cotton ones but so far it's holding up nicely. I made some square ones before and added the recycled lettuce netting and they held up well. I do think adding the netting does add to the life of the scrubber though.

I really love these!  But im clueless about the spiral part, I mean how does a flat piece turn into a neat little round spiral piece?

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Brilliant! You could use cut up plastic bags made into a thread too to give it extra oomph! Lots of scrubby potential!!

well you make like a parallellogram which turns into this when you gather the two sides.  Hmmm ... OK I have made them before and I still can't visualize it.  There's even a knit version of the pattern too out there.
Here's a thing on flickr that is more visual http://www.flickr.com/photos/mariannes_stuff/2530495636/
ETA: if you google tawashi patterns you'll find lots of visuals too

You crochet the parallellogram shape as mentioned and than you gather up the opposite ends to create your spiral scrubbie. I have my post here about how to use the lettuce sleeves etc. http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2009/03/28/crochet-a-spiral-scrubbie/ Also the lettuce netting is soft enough that it doesn't seem to hurt my non-stick pans for scrubbing on them. Here is the link to Judith's crochet scrubbie pattern http://crochetpatternsonly.blogspot.com/2005_05_16_crochetpatternsonly_archive.html which is the one I used.
