I tried making some with tulle and yarn. I suppose this is a dumb question, but were yours tulle AND yarn, or just tulle? I couldn't quite manage it so it remains a WIP. (I'm newly back to crochet...
Mine were just tulle. I don't know why a piece of yarn is needed, so I didn't use it. I just twisted the tulle as i was crocheting it. Seems strong enough to me.

the ones that I had received as a gift were not as fancy.
They were only garter stitch rectangles. I have had them both with tulle only and with yarn/tulle. For scrubbing pts and pans I like the tulle only. But, for dishes, I like the yarn tulle combination.
Pattern I was sent was use like a size 10 needle and cast on 10 stitches and knit to size wanted, and bind off.
Very simple - easy to make and I love them for scrubbing and for being gentle on my hands and nails but tough on the cleaning. Even my husband is pleased with them......
I will never go back to store bought !

Thanks for the info. I am going to try that next.

Also, I have been able to find inexpensive tulle in 6 inch width. What I do is buy the roll and then cut it in half - right down the middle as I pull it off the roll. (its not an exact science - but close enough)
Not as time consuming as it sounds......then using tp or papertowels tubes, I wrap it around to hold the tulle as I am knitting and I have one long continuous piece of tulle.
I have even found tulle for free on craigslist or very cheap left over from weddings, etc.

I have crochet with plastic canvas yarn (100% Nylon) to make scrubbies. I avoid the process of cutting tulle into strips. For me the yarn works just as good. Also I like making scrubbies to fit into my soap dishes to keep the dish clean. The scrubbie sucks up any water from the soap. I was thinking of making these soap pads out of cotton but didn't get around for doing this yet.

you can also make nice scruppies using the mesh bags that onions and fruit come in. it takes several but they are great and they are free. i cut the bag down the middle, and twist the mess together, then crochet with a large hook.

recycled. after a while you don't mind throwing them away, they cost nothing.
