What is it?

This is my newest FO. What is it?
Here's a finished view. What does it look like to you?
Here is the best hint. Got it yet?
Here it is in use.

Here it is after. At what point did you get your mind out of the gutter? Sorry if you are disappointed.

This is a free pattern from Crochet Pattern Central

I used Lion Brand Lion Cotton which is worsted weight, size H crochet hook.
I changed it a bit. I crocheted in a spiral instead of rows, and I made a different pom pom top. I didn't want all the cut ends to drop lint on my clothes in the washer.

It works really well and took about an hour to make. I will make more because they are so useful. I do dust, but I don't do . . . much of anything else.

Brilliant! I like yours better. Besides not having the creepy googley eyes, it's much more - effective - by the looks of it.

Very cool. I too think leaving off the googly eyes was a good call. Who wants their dust mop staring at them?

When I was learning to cook, my mom made me a special potholder to go on the end of skillet handle. (I was specializing in scrambled eggs.) It looked like the first photo posted. Obviously it didn't have the frou-frou end that this dust mop has.

Clever - my house could use one of those. Would be much dustier than yours!
