Cobweb Duster

aug 2002
small amount of worsted weight yarn
crochet hook size H
and a latch hook (but can do without it if don't have one)

The duster ties to the end of a mop or broom handle.

Ch 5, join to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, 10 sc in ring. Join to first sc with a slip stitch.(10 sc)

Rnd 2: Ch 2, sc in same stitch, 2 sc in each sc around. Join with a slip stitch to the top of the ch 2. (20sc) The ch 2 is the first sc.

Rnd 3: Ch 2, dc around. Slip stitch to the top of the ch 2. (ch 2 is the first dc here).

Rnds 4-8: Rep round 3.

Rnd 9: Ch 2, hdc around. (ch 2 is the first hdc here) slip stitch to the top of the ch 2.

Rnd 10: Ch 2, dc around. slip stitch to the top of ch 2.

Rnds 11-14: Ch 1, sc around, slip stitch to the first sc.

Rnd 15: Ch 2, hdc around. Slip stitch to the top of the ch 2.

Rnd 16: Ch 1, sc around. slip stitch to first sc. Fasten off.

Finishing directions: cut some yarn in 4"lengths. You will latch hook them to the top rounds of the duster...You can do as many or as little as you want...In the example, I did about 4-5 rows on the duster..
If you don't know how to latch hook, you can tie the yarn to the duster and knot it on.

then cut a yarn about double the circumference of the duster and weave it thru Rnd 15. This will be the tie to hold it on the pole.

you could put some fabric glue on the inside to keep the yarn that is ties or latch hooked on the duster to wash the dust and cobbies away...but you can rinse it off and let dry too.

Hope you like it.
