Knit And Crochet Soap Bags

Lion Brand« Kitchen Cotton

GAUGE:

Knit Bag 17 sts + 24 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).
Crochet Bag 14 sc + 14 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Knit Bag is worked in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), from the top down.
2. When knitting in the rnd on dpns, your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using - this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical 'tube' of knitting.
3. Carry unused color up WS (inside) of work.
4. When changing color, the first st of the new color is slipped at the end of the rnd and the beg of rnd marker moved by one st. This creates stripes that do not have a noticeable 'jog' or 'step' when the color is changed. Follow the instructions carefully to produce a smooth color transition.


BAG
Beg at top edge with A, cast on 38 sts. Divide sts onto 4 double pointed needles (dpn), with 10 sts on each of first 2 dpns and 9 sts on each of last 2 dpn. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Rnds 1 and 2: With A, knit.
Note: In the following rnd, the first st of the new color is slipped at the end of the rnd and the beg of rnd marker is moved one st.
Rnd 3: With B, k to end of rnd, remove marker, sl next st as if to purl, replace marker for new beg of rnd.
Rnds 4-6: With B, knit.
Rnd 7 (Eyelet Rnd): With B, *k2tog, yo; rep from * around.
Rnd 8: With B, knit.
Rnd 9: With A, k to end of rnd, remove marker, sl next st as if to purl, replace marker for new beg of rnd.
Rnds 10-13: Rep Rnds 3-6.
Rnds 14-33: Rep Rnds 9-13, 4 more times.
Rnd 34: With B, knit.
Divide sts evenly onto 2 dpns (19 sts on each). With WS tog, using an empty dpn and B, knit tog 1 st from each needle, *knit tog 1 st from each needle, pass first st worked over 2nd to bind off; rep from * across. Cut working yarn and pull through last st to secure.

 

FINISHING
Top Edging

Join A with sl st anywhere on top edge, sc in same space, *ch 1, sk next st, sc in next st; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
Drawstring
With A, make a ch about 19 in. (48.5 cm) long, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. Fasten off. Thread Drawstring through eyelet row of Bag.

 

CROCHET BAG
NOTES

1. Crochet Bag is worked in the rnd, from the bottom up.
2. If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 33, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; join with sl st in first sc - 32 sc at the end of this rnd. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed. Proceed to Rnd 2.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Carry unused color along WS of piece.

 

BAG
Beg at lower edge with B, ch 32. Being careful not to twist ch; join with sl st in first ch to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in each ch around; join with sl st in first sc - 32 sc at the end of this rnd.
Rnds 2-12: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc.
Change to A.
Do not fasten off B. Carry B along WS of piece until next needed.
Rnd 13: With A, ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 14: Ch 1, turn, *with A, sc in next 2 sc; with B, sc in next 2 sc; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc. Change to B. Fasten off A.
Rnd 15: With B, ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 16 (Eyelet): Ch 3 (counts as dc, ch 1), turn, sk first 2 sc, *dc in next sc, ch 1, sk next sc; rep from * around; join with sl st in 2nd ch of beg ch - 16 dc, and 16 ch-1 sps at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 17: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc and ch-sp around; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 18: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc.
Top Edging: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, *ch 1, sk next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * to last sc, ch 1, sk last sc; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

 

FINISHING
Flatten bag. Join B with sl st in one corner, then sl st across bottom of Bag, through both layers, to close.
Weave in ends.
Drawstring
With A, make a ch about 19 in. (48.5 cm) long, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. Fasten off. Thread Drawstring through eyelet row of Bag.

Knit And Crochet Soap Bags Reviewed by Nanette Brown on 2013-06-06 *****
This pattern was easy to make and fits a nice bar of bath soap. The instructions were easy to follow and I got it finished in a short period of time. I am going to be giving these to friends as a special hand-made gift with a Zum bar of goats milk soap enclosed.


LOVE IT!!!!!
