For the third pattern in my Dip-Dyed CAL, I am sharing the Dip-Dyed Soap Cozy or Small Gift Bag! This is my 8th soap cozy/gift bag design. They are so much fun to make. I enjoy using them as gift/favor bags, but they are also perfect for a handmade bar of soap.

Materials:

  • Less than 75 Yards of Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn - I used Lily Sugar n Cream in the Ecru and Hot Green colorways
  • H8/5mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Materials Notes:
Yarn Alternatives: Bernat Handicrafter, Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran, Rico Creative Cotton Aran, Crafter’s Secret Cotton Yarn (from Hobby Lobby)

Jewelry pliers are an excellent tool to use to help weave in ends, as cotton yarn can be quite tough on the fingers when weaving in with just fingers and needle.

Time Spent:
Just under 45 minutes.

Measurements:
4.5” Wide Across Middle by 6” Tall

Gauge:
Not essential unless working to fit a specific item. In the round, 15 SC in BLO = 4”

Abbreviations:

  • BLO - Back Loop Only
  • SC - Single Crochet
  • HDC - Half Double Crochet
  • DC - Double Crochet
