SPECIAL STITCHES

PATTERN

PART 4 – Deluxe Bath Gift Set Soap Saver

I used approximately 15g of MC, and 5g of CC to make my soap saver – Use hook suitable to your yarn choice

Chain 15 using MC

Round 1: make 2 hdc sts into 3rd chain from hook, hdc into next 11 ch, 6 hdc into last ch, turn slightly, then hdc into the other side of the chain going back towards the first hdc, then make 3 hdc into the same ch sp as the first 2 hdc sts and ch 3 (counts as hdc), do NOT ss into 1st hdc, as we are working in the round now (34)

Helpful hint: work in a continuous round, so do not join each row with a slip stitch, the edge will be slightly skew but do not worry about it because we will sort that out in the last round before we make the row for the threading of the ribbon

Helpful hint: make your first hdc for round 2 into the 3rd ch of the 1st 3 ch from round 1

Round 2 – 13: hdc into each st, use your stitch marker to keep count of your completed rows

Helpful hint: there are 34 hdc sts in each continuous round, so remember to use a stitch marker to easily count your rows

Round 14: hdc 32 (so only 2 sts remain for round 14), then 1 sc in 2nd last st, and then ss into last st (34)

Helpful hint: we have now straightened the edge, not perfect but once the border is on you won’t see it, and the soap saver looks great, because there is no seam up the side

Round 15: ch 1, hdc into same st, *ch 1, sk st, hdc into next st*, rep *.*, ss into 1st ch 1 (17 hdc, 17 ch sps)

Round 16: ch 1, hdc into same st, *hdc into ch 1 sp, hdc into next hdc*, rep *.*, ss into 1st hdc 1, cut yarn and use nj, and weave in tails (34)

Border

Change to CC

Round 17: starting in any hdc from round 16, ch 1, sc into same st, sc into next 33 sts, ss into 1st sc (34)

Round 18: ch 1, crab st (reverse sc) into same sc, crab st into next 33 sts, cut yarn, weave in ends (34)

Helpful hint: you can use ribbon to tie your soap saver, or you can crochet a ‘ribbon’

Ribbon

Using CC, make a mc, make a starting 5 dc cl st into the mc, ch 50, cut yarn leaving a 40cm tail, using the darning needle, thread ‘ribbon’ through top holes below shells, then make another starting 5 dc cl st into the last ch, close with a ss, weave in ends

Helpful hint: refer to the special stitches for a tutorial on how to make a starting 5 double crochet cluster stitch

Place your bar of soap into the soap saver (I have used a 175g bar of soap), tie a bow, and voila – soap saver done – if you use a 150g cake of soap make 13 hdc rows before the ribbon row (hdc, ch1 rep), and if you use a 200g cake of soap make 15 hdc rows before the ribbon row (hdc, ch1 rep)
