Dishsoap Sack

I have been using pure soap (think Sunlight soap) for washing my dishes for about 8 weeks now. My first soap has finally finished, and so I decided I needed to make a new soap sack. They work fairly well, and are better for the environment than the liquid you buy at the supermarket. Less nasty chemicals.

The pattern is very very simple. Basically, all you need to do is knit a rectangle and sew up the seams. :)

This is the pattern I used to fit the sunlight soap. Cast on 22 stitches with 5.5mm needles. Work in basic knit for 26 rows. Sew up side seam, turn right side out and insert the soap. Sew up end seams and there you have it!
