Reusable Crochet Wet Mop Pad Pattern

Crochet Swiffer Pad Pattern by Just Be Crafty

Today’s post is all about the Reusable Crochet Wet Mop Pad Pattern!

With the weather warming up and the new season in full swing my husband and I are starting the process of giving the house a major spring clean.  There’s something about the warm air and bright cheery colors of spring that make me want purge the old and do a deep clean!  Spring cleaning gives such a fresh start and sets us up for a great year to come!

As I have been gathering cleaning materials to get to work, I decided to whip up some of my own wet mop pads!  I don’t know about you, but I hate spending money on wet mop pads (aka Swiffer Pads)!  They are expensive, and I am constantly going through boxes like crazy so I thought it would be a good idea to make my own.  Not only will the homemade version of these pads be more cost effective but it is better for the environment by creating less waste.  Win win!

And the best part is, when I’m done with a pad I just take it off the Swiffer and drop in the washing machine!

This pattern is designed to fit the Swiffer Wet Jet wet mop which measures approximately 10 3/8″ by 4 1/2″.  The pad is designed to be a bit bigger than the Swiffer itself to make it easier to slide onto the mop and to account for any shrinkage that might occur with washings.

The pattern features the beautiful bobble stitch, which makes for an excellent scrubbing surface to give your floors a great deep clean.

Psst!  Looking for a quicker solution?

If you’re looking for a quicker solution and want clean floors while you crochet, I got you!  Here’s something that I’ve been using when my handmade mops are in the wash – Turbo Mops!  It’s another great option if you’re looking for something reusable.

They fit the Swiffer WetJet and work great dry for sweeping up dust and dirt as well as wet!  You can find them on Amazon here.

Reusable Crochet Wet Mop Pad Pattern


Please note this pattern is only compatible for older models of the Swiffer WetJet that have the sprayer in the center of the paddle head.  Stay tuned for the the updated version of this pattern that will be compatible with the new Swiffer WetJet!


  • Size 5.0 mm hook
  • One 4oz ball of Lily Sugar n’Cream Yarn in Hot Pink
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle


  • Bobble Stitch – start a double crochet by yarning over and inserting your hook into the stitch, grab working yarn with hook, yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, insert hook into same same stitch, grab working yarn with hook, yarn over, pull through two loops.  Keep repeating until there are 5 loops total on your hook, yarn over, pull through all 5 loops.  See this video for a visual.  (The bobbles on the bobble stitch pop out on the back of your work.  Because of this, we work the bobbles on the “wrong side” of the work so that the bobbles poke out on the “right side”.)
  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • yo – yarn over
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • st – stitch

Finished Measurement:

  • Approximately 11″ x 6.26″ laying flat


ch 18

Row 1: starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc across row, turn (17)

Row 2: ch 1, *sc, bobble stitch; repeat from *7 x, sc, turn (17)

Rows 3 – 32: repeat Rows 1 and 2

Row 33: ch 1, sc across row, turn

Row 34: repeat row 33

Row 35: ch 1, sc in back loops only, turn

Row 36: ch1, sc across row, turn

Rows 37 – 44: ch 1, sc across row

Cut yarn and secure.

Flip over your work so that the bobble side is face down, and rotate work so that the starting end is facing towards you.

Insert your hook in the first stitch (as shown below), ch1, and sc across row, turn.

Repeat Row 35.

Repeat Rows 36 – 44.

You will now be working in rounds.

Round 1: ch1 and turn, sc in each stitch across row and make 2 dc in the 1st corner stitch.

Sc along edge, making one sc per row, make 2sc in the 2nd corner stitch; sc along other side, making 2 sc in the 3rd corner stitch, sc along other edge making 1 sc per row, and sc in the same stitch as the first stitch in 4th corner.

Join with the first stitch of the round with a sl st.

Cut and secure yarn.

Turn piece over so that the bobble side is face down.  Fold both side edges inward.

Remember when we single crocheted in the back loops only for one row on each of the side flaps?  And did you see how we formed a little line on both sides of your flaps?  We are going to single crochet along that line.  Starting at one of the corners insert your hook into the 1st stitch on one of the side flap lines (shown below).

ch 1, and sc across the side, then line the stitches of side flap with the body of the pad, and sc the side flap to the body (crocheting in the outer loops only).

Once you reach the end of the 1st folded over flap, sc along edge as usual until you reach where the folded side flap meets the body.

Line stitches up and sc the outer loops together

Sc across second end of other side and repeat this process until you reach back around to where you started, join round with a sl st.

Cut yarn and secure.  Weave in any ends.

  3. Ok so I made one of these for my wetjet and it covers up where the solution sprays out. Did you have this problem?

  4. I made this without fully reading and found out my wet jet was the newer one so the sprayers were covered. So I took apart the ends and redid them to include windows for the sprayers. It works awesome!

  5. Hello there. Just made one of these and love it. But I do need a new swiffer and cannot find the older model. Will there be another pattern for the newer version. I love the bobble stitch as well

    1. Hi Natalie! I do hope to get a new pattern up soon. It will be coming this spring, along with some new dishcloths to prep for spring cleaning season.

  6. What am o doing wrong? My second row at the end looks like an extra stitch at the end, I have 8 bubbles I crochedt one at the end and seventeen stitches But it look a funky, what did I do, please help. Thank you.

    1. Hi Patty! I have a video tutorial linked in the post where I show step by step how to complete a bobble stitch row. I think that should help. Thanks!

  7. I think I missed something??? I got to the end before you start rounds and realized I only have one “end piece” that goes over the end of the swiffer. Was that piece supposed to be done first or did I miss something in the pattern?

  8. Thanks this one was fun and pretty easy. I have made 2 since I looked it up and I am now working on one to fit my odd shaped wall mop. I like the bobbles. Since I saw you said you read all the posts I was wondering if you have a pattern you could share using cotton to make a stuffed animal hammock I was thinking something similar to the farmers market bag idea. i have also made those in the past but I’m a little unsure of how to work the pattern in the opposite direction (top to bottom instead of bottom to top). Any tips would be appreciated thatnks.

    1. Hi Alecia! That’s a great idea! I do not currently have a pattern, but I will keep that in mind for a future pattern. You could still work in the round as the for my round market tote pattern, but you just wouldn’t complete the ending when you reduce the chains and make the handles.

  9. Thank you for this pattern. I’m currently making one and love the texture can’t wait to use it and make more including some for my daughter in laws thanks again

  10. Hi Brittany,

    I was wondering if you have the updated pattern for the Swiffer Wet Jet cover?

    Thank you,
    Deb Casey

  11. I absolutely love this pattern but realized that I have the newer swiffer and the sprayers are covered ? do you happen to have a pattern for the newer models?

  12. Did you ever update the pattern for the newer style of wetjet with 2 sprayers? I don’t see one but I may be missing it. So excited to use this!!

  13. Hi Brittany!
    I love, love, love your site as a self taught crocheter during this pandemic. Thank you for all of the amazing patterns and instructions. I would love to make this but I have the newer version of the swifer wet jet! Any chance a pattern for that will be coming soon?

  14. I found your site. nice work that you are doing. I like it very much. I hope everyone will love it. I want to say thanks for the helpful work. keep it up.

  15. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems
    with your site. It looks like some of the written text within your posts
    are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them too? This may be
    a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.


  16. Hi Brittany,

    At some point I am still hoping for the newer Swiffer Wet Jet cover. Please let us know if it does come out.

    Thank you,

  17. HI,

    I just found your site & this pattern on Thursday-looks good. I’m trying to adjust the rows, count, size, etc. to fit a different brand name; thought I was alright until your Row 37.
    I’m noticing the sc stitches are going along the side of the project, not the ends as your pictures show. Have I missed something?
