Free Crochet Pattern: Reusable Dust Mop Cover

I will fully admit I haven’t crocheted as much as I would like. Honestly, life’s been pretty crazy lately. I started this project planning to post it for Earth Day. Safe to say I’m a tad late.

But you know what they say; better late than never.

Over the last year or two, I have been making a concerted effort to reduce my plastic and single-use product use. I’ve moved away from traditional laundry liquids to plastic-free laundry products (still trying to settle on a product I like). I have been looking for products packaged in recyclable materials. I’m using dryer balls instead of the usual fabric softeners.

One item I haven’t been able to kick is the use of dust mop sheets. That is, until now.

I’m a HUGE fan of cotton yarns like Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Yarn. I’ve made dish towels and shower scrubbies with it over the years. Now I’ve finally developed a reusable dust mop cover.

And I’m posting the pattern here for you… for free. I hope you enjoy it!

Dust Mop Cover Crochet Pattern


  • One ball of Lily Sugar ‘n Cream yarn (I used Scrub Off in denim)
