Turkish Lif Scrubby – a fun stitch for cleaning away!

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Use the Turkish Lif Scrubby to bring some style to and clean up your kitchen. The Turkish lif stitch is fun to make and easy to learn with all the step by step photos provided with this pattern. Try using a variegated or color changing yarn such as the Cascade Yarns Paradigm Shift used in my samples. You can also change colors to create a few rounds of different colors to match your decor or even to show team spirit. Just have fun, isn’t that what crafting is all about?
