One Ball Soap Bag

Lion Brand® Kitchen Cotton


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


1. 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.

Beg at lower edge, 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 2-15: 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.


Flatten bag. Join yarn with sl st in one corner, then sl st across bottom of Bag, through both layers, to close.
Weave in ends.
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.

Super cute! My bottom seam ended up kind of chunky ( I ended up turning the bag inside out) but that's probably just me. I would, as mentioned in a previous comment, leave a long tail at the beginning for closing the bottom. I also added two more rows to make it long enough but, again, that's probably just me. : )
