Reusable Duster Cover

Honestly, I feel a little silly posting a pattern for what is essentially a garter stitch rectangle, but I did find it helpful to have finished measurements to shoot for. Basically, I wanted the cover to be wide enough, but have a lot of negative ease so it wouldn't slide around on the swiffer. I also considered adding some kind of bobble or attachment, but the fuzz on the Scrubby helps keep the cover in place.

Last winter, my mom asked me to knit her a swiffer cover when I was visiting. We went out and got yarn and needles, and I was able to work one up pretty quickly. Later, I spotted some Red Heart Scrubby yarn and thought it would make a perfect cover.
