The RELAX holder was design to hold a soap for my sister who loves everything that is natural. It is designed with 100% wool. She asked me to use Polish rustic wool for its antibacterial activity in the bathroom. I believe this little gift will make her day. Not only it knits up quickly and looks so cute, the sample will work as a RELAX soap holder or whatever you would like to use it for.

The holder is knit in the round for the most part of the project. Techniques like Judy’s Magic cast on (link included), decreases and i-cord are used to make it nice and seamless. You will find an interesting pick up technique too.
