    What is a loop stitch?


  2. Sorry about the delay….I’m currently moving and what a job that is….anyway, I will try to explain the loop st:

    wrap yarn twice, loosely around finger, insert hook under loops on finger, pick up yarn, pull through, yarn over and pull thru last loop on hook. Hope this helps….good luck,

  3. Jeanette Says:

    Since it is made with cotton, does it shrink much after washing? I’m just worried that it might not fit the sweeper after washing and drying, unless I hang it up to dry.


  4. I actually used an inexpensive 4 ply worsted weight (Red Heart) for the mop and duster. It can be machine washed and dried. If you choose a cotton yarn, you should be ok with a machine wash and hang (or lay flat) to dry.

  5. Cora Shaw Says:

    Really cool idea! I love it.

    I don’t get how to do the loop stitch..I get the part of going under the 2 loops on your finger, but how do you get to the yarn to draw thru the loops, then pull thru the last loop on hook?? Sorry to bother, but I really would like to make some of these up…Thanx for any input given…


  11. This link has very good directions with pictures for the loop stitch…http://www.crochetme.com/forums/t/28870.aspx
