Crocheted "Swiffer" Cover

My friend, Stephanie, was telling me the other day that she was knitting a seed stitch cover for her Swiffer mop. I thought it was a really great idea because it's reusable. I decided to make one for myself but as I loathe seed stitch I decided to crochet mine. I bought a Japanese swiffer-type mop years ago and had been using the Swiffer brand sheets to cover it but every time I touched those sheets with my bare skin, I'd start to itch and felt like my hand was swelling so I stopped using them. I even tried using terry washcloths and just poked them into the four holes on the top of the mop. It worked but then I discovered microfiber mops, which I absolutely love and forgot all about the swiffer. Heck, to be honest, making it was just something to do with my hands while I watched TV. Here is the fruit of my labor.
