How To Use These Covers

You can make as many crochet swiffer pads as you like for your mop head. Use it dry as a crochet dust cover for hardwood floors. This great for cleaning up pet fur. And for tile you can wet it like a traditional mop.

When you’re done, toss them in the washing machine, and they’re ready to use again. A crochet swiffer cover is a great option to replace the disposable ones, creating less waste.

The Yarn

I highly recommend you use cotton yarn, preferably 100% cotton for this pattern. I use Dishie,* but you can use any #4 medium worsted weight cotton yarn. See more yarn details under Materials below.

The Hook

I was excited to use my newest Streamline, the Capricorn*! The gold glitter is so pretty. And most importantly the ergonomic handle is comfy!

Stitches / Abbreviations

ch (s) – chain (s)

hdc – half double crochets

RS – right side

sc – single crochet

st – stitch

WS – wrong side

Skill Level



My mop is a 9.5″ long x 4.5″ wide x .75″ deep rectangle. If your mop is a different size you can adjust the rectangle to fit.

To make this mop cover wider or narrower chain to a different odd number. If you’re meeting gauge then you can add or subtract 4 (which is about an 1″) to my starting chain.

You can lengthen or shorten it by working less rows. Just make sure you can wrap it around the edges of your mop.

Years ago I replaced our paper towels with reusable ones I sewed. So sometimes when we run out we use one of those. But now we can use this one which is perfectly sized and works much better!
