Gauge: 4 sc = 1"; 2 dc rows = 1"
Designer's Note: This will be a tight fit but since the soap will get smaller as it is used, I didn't want to make it to fit loosely. This fits a 4.5 oz. Ivory bath bar.
Edging: sc in first dc. *ch 3, sc in next dc. Repeat from * around. join and fasten off. (You can also do a shell stitch edging or for a man, I often either just sc or reverse sc.).
Drawstring: Ch 85; fasten off. Weave ends back through 4 or 5 chs. Tie each end in a knot. Cut off end of yarn that you weaved through the ch. Weave ch through dc on Rnd 9. Place soap in bag. Tie chain and pull up tight(do not make a knot. You want to be able to loosen the chain to replace the soap). Tie the very ends in a knot to make hanging loop.
