How to Crochet a Ribbed Soap Saver – 20 Minute Project – Three Skein Challenge

How to crochet a ribbed soap saver?  In this tutorial, I show you how to create a soap saver with a ribbed texture to add extra exfoliation when you wash.  It lathers perfectly and is a great replacement for your loofa. This pattern is very simple to make and can be done in about 20 minutes.  It is an excellent compliment to any bar soap that you use and can be great if you are looking to reduce some of your plastic waste. 
This soap saver pattern is one of many in my three skein challenge.  This challenge is to see how many projects I can squeeze out of just three skeins.  If you would like to join along beside me in this challenge, make sure that you have 3 skeins, all 7 oz, size 4 (medium), and that they are all the same brand.
