Green is good

I've had this project on the to-do list for a while: a loopy crocheted dust cover for a Swiffer.

I love how cheerful and springy it is! And it's eco-friendly! Perhaps my cutting down on disposable Swiffer cloths will save an otter somewhere.Reusable Swiffer loopy dust cloth

If you can do sc (single crochet, for the knit-types), you can make this. The loop is just a fancy-pants modified sc, and the loop stitch tutorial that the pattern links to is easy to follow. This was a nice way to use one of the stashed balls of Sugar 'n Cream cotton I had lying around.

I'm off to dust the top of my ceiling fan.
