Soap Sacks to crochet

My basket of bazaar items is getting fuller by the day. Here's what was on my crochet hook last night--soap sacks. I thought this would be another nice bazaar item. After looking at the free patterns on the web, I decided to create my own. Four of them flew off my hook very quickly. I certainly couldn't knit them that fast! Have fun!

Soap Sacks

This soap sack makes a great skin scrubber. When you’re done with it, hang it up by the cord to dry. All you need is 18 yards of worsted weight cotton yarn, a crochet hook, and less than 30 minutes. Slip in your favorite bar of soap and enjoy!

Finished size: 3" x 5" (It should fit a standard size bar of soap.)

Size H (5 mm) crochet hook
Large eye tapestry needle
Worsted weight cotton yarn (I used Sugar & Cream.)
16 yards for sack
2 yards for cord


This pattern is now available as a free download through my Ravelry pattern store.

What a clever idea for soap! I'm also envious that you have so many yarn shops to visit in your vicinity...I have just one.

these are super cute, but i have a question. Do you know how to make the frog soap holders? My husbands' family has only 3 remaning from their grandmother who has passed away and one of hs sisters has put claim on them, I would love to know how to make them for the future generation.

After each round, do you slip stitch it closed?

Vicki said...

Yes, slip stitch to join each round.

Can I make some of these soap sacks to sell?
