What a great idea! I would have never thought to crochet a swiffer cover but that one you featured above looks great! And you can just throw it in the washer when it's dirty instead of throwing it away. Great hub!!

I found another version of this sweeper cover on Ravelry (called a "Biffer Shrug"). I made some for Christmas gifts last year. It's good to have another version. Thanks for sharing the patterns! Rated up and useful.
