Crochet Soap Saver

You might be wondering what a soap saver is, or how to use it. Let me tell you. A crochet soap saver is a little sack that you can pop your bar of soap into and hang it up next to your bath or shower. You can also fill the bag up with those small little bits of soap that get leftover to ‘save’ them. Soap savers can be really helpful for children as the soap holder can also be used as a body scrubber, making bath time or showering at the pool a lot easier for kids.

This free crochet pattern will teach you how to crochet a soap saver, the simple tutorial is easy enough for advanced beginners and uses only basic crochet stitches, no sewing, and no color changes. You will need some cotton yarn in aran or worsted weight, a 5mm crochet hook,  and some soap.
