Felted Soap Cozy With Acorn

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - 1 st increased.

NOTES:

1. Materials are sufficient to make multiple Cozies.
2. Due to the nature of the felting process, the size of your finished Cozy may vary.

Row 1 (RS): P7, k1, p14, k1, p7.
Row 2: K7, p1, k14, p1, k7.

Change to C.
Rows 6-9: Work in Rev St st (p on RS, k on WS) for 4 rows.

FINISHING
With RS facing, place Cozy on bar of soap, with knit ridges at the sides. Sew center back seam. Sew top and lower edges closed. Sew Acorn to front of Cozy. Weave in ends.

Felting
Fill sink with hot water. Put on rubber gloves. Hold Cozy with one hand, rub surface of fabric with your other hand. Work over entire surface, lathering until sts begin to lose their definition. Rinse gently to remove soap residue. Allow to dry. Cozy will continue to felt as soap is used.

Felted Soap Cozy With Acorn Reviewed by suzanna on 2012-12-11 *****
This was very quick and easy to knit together. I made my 'prototype' out of acrylic yarn so I could time how fast they will be to make for christmas gifts. Going to get some wool and knit a bunch of these.
