I am putting two patterns on for the swiffer cover one knitted and one crocheted.
Not everyone crochets or knits so this gives either a chance or a choice. Where one is reversible the second has a nice honeycomb texture. Both work well for dusting and moping.

Reversible swiffer cover (Crocheted)
Peaches & cream cotton, Size G Hook
Row 1: Hdc in third ch from st. and in each st across.
Rows 2-9: Ch2, hdc. in each st. across.
Row 10: Working in front loop only * ch3, sl st in next st, sc in next stitch. Repeat from * across.
Row 11: Turn, working in what is now the front loop of the previous row, ch2 hdc in each st across.
Row 12: ch 3 working in front loop sc in first st. * ch3 sl st in next st sc in next st. repeat from * across ending with sl st in last st.
Row 13: repeat row 11.
Repeat rows 10 through 13 till you have 16 rows of ch3 loops.
Rows 14-22 repeat row 11, 9 times finish off.
Fold over each end about 2 inches. Sew sides together.
The loop side is for dusting while the flat side is great for moping.
