A smaller bag which fits a handmade soap, or a larger gift-sized bag which will hold a small box of gourmet chocolate, deck of cards, or other small item. Knit in organic cotton on large needles to allow maximum stretch, and scrubbability in the case of the soap bag.

This is an ideal simple project for those learning a little bit past scarves.

Skills, Soap Bag: Cast On, Knit, Knit 2 Together, Yarn Over, Bind Off.
Gift Bag: Above skills plus purl.

With one 50gm ball of organic DK-weight cotton, I knit three soap bags and one gift bag with a bit left over.
