If you are familiar with the foundation stitch, you can start off with a row of 42 foundation half double crochet.

16 inches by 5 inches across
10 inches by 5 inches with the folds

Work a chain of 43.

Row 1: Work 1 HDC in each stitch across, turn

Row 2-11: CH 1, this chain 1 will not count as a stitch, only the step to the next row.  Work 1 HDC in each stitch across.


Sewing the sides




  1. You will count back 7 stitches and fold them on top, on each side.
  2. You will sew the sides together, knotting well at the starting points
  3. Upon completion, knot, secure and hide the tails.


You will easily be able to slip the cover over your Swiffer Sweeper.
