How To Crochet A Soap Saver (Summer Spa Getaway CAL)


It's spa time!  Welcome back to the 2021 Fiber Flux Summer Crochet Along...yippee! We are working an amazing series of projects this time...the Summer Spa Getaway CAL!  Each week we'll make a different spa item (everything is listed below on the schedule) and at the end, you'll have a beautiful collection of spa themed crochet items that you can use for self-care or lovely gifts too!  This series is easy and fun...meant to be a relaxing, easy going summer project, all part of our spa theme!

Today we're working on a soap saver, a wonderfully handy item to have that helps builds wonderful lather and helps to use up all of those pesky soap scraps too!

    Materials:
    Finished Sizing:
    • 5 inches tall
    • 3 inches wide
    • Loop is about 2 inches tall before pulling it closed

    Instructions:

    Ch 31 (multiple of 6+1)

    Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc. *Skip two ch then work a sc in the next ch. skip 2 ch and in the next ch, work 4 dc. There will be 3 ch left on the row. Skip the next two ch, and in the very last ch, work a sc.

    Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work 2 dc in the sc from the previous row. *Work a sc in the center space of the fan from the previous row (area in between the posts right in the center). Work 4 dc in the sc in between the next two fans. Work a sc in the turning chain space to finish the row.

    Repeat row 2 until the piece is approximately 5 inches tall.

    Fasten off and fold in half so that the sides are touching. Seam sides and bottom, leaving the top open. To make hanging/drawstring loop, chain 32 (or about 10 inches) then fasten off. Weave the chain around the top edge of pouch. Tie ends together to create a large loop, then pull it through the pouch so that knot is hidden. Weave in any ends that remain and then its ready to use!
