Benefits of Using a Soap Sack
Crocheting a soap sack(also called a soap saver) is useful and convenient in a few different ways. As the name implies, the main function of a soap saver is to keep soap from being wasted. Instead of losing small pieces of soap as the bar breaks apart or gets soft, the sack keeps it all together and prevents loss. Not only does this cut down on waste, but it also saves money over time.
Along with that, a soap saver will often have a tie that doubles as a way to hang your soap(this design has that feature as well). This allows the soap to drain and dry some between uses and also contributes to less waste. Beyond these practical benefits though, crocheting a soap sack is also just a way to make something pretty and useful for the bathroom, and makes a nice addition to any crochet bathroom set.
About this Design and Materials
This design, which I call the straightforward soap sack, is an easy crochet pattern that is even sutitable for beginners. It uses medium weight cotton yarn, which is easily available, and fits most commercial bars of soap.
Making this design is also very quick. While everyone works at a slightly different pace, it takes me a mere 15 or 20 minutes to work up one of these. And, while construction requires a quick seam, there is no shaping or working in the round required.
