Stitches used in this pattern:
Yarn: 4 Medium, 100% Cotton
Crochet Hook: G / 6 / 4.25MM
Attach yarn to crochet hook using a slip knot.
Row 1: CH 11, turn.
Row 2: Working in the BLO of the 2nd CH from crochet hook, place 1 SC in each st in the row. Turn work slightly at end of row, then place 1 SC in the FLO of each of the previous row’s stitches (20 total SC st at end of row – should now be a round pattern). SL st in 1st SC st.
Row 3: CH 2, then place 1 DC in BLO of the st directly BEHIND current st (make sure to skip the SL st and work in the last SC st of the previous row). *Skip the next st that hasn’t been worked, and place 1 DC in the BLO of the following st, then place 1 DC in the BLO of the skipped st (behind current st).* Repeat * around the row (10 criss-cross st at end of row).
Rows 4 – 9: Repeat Row 3.
CH 40. Cut off yarn, but leave loop open for crochet to reenter. Weave the chains in and out of the gaps between the criss-cross stitches from the last row. Once you’ve woven around the row, SL st into the original st, where your chain stitches began.
Cut and tie off yarn. Hide tail up the inside of the soap saver.
Pull on the saggy chain on the opposite side of the soap saver to remove any slack. Insert bar of soap, and then pull tightly to cinch the soap inside the soap saver.
