Notes

While on the pricier side, this yarn makes the perfect soap cover because it works so well as a “washcloth”.

These details worked with Rowan Purelife Revive to cover a bar of Dr. Bronners Pure-Castile Soap (your mileage may vary!):

  1. A loose long-tail cast of 26 stitches on #6 dpn’s.
  2. Follow all other details of pattern and work row’s 1 & 2 a total of 14 times.

Chain 55 for the tie, using an F hook, and weave through first eyelet row.

This cover fits very tightly in the beginning but continues to fit the bar well as it shrinks with use.
