Loom Knitting Stitch: Broken Rib Stitch

Hello loom knitters, this loom knitting stitch is reversible, lies flat and is great for hats, scarves and edgings. Use it in place of the regular rib stitch to add interest. It's called the Broken Rib Stitch! It's what I like to call a handsome stitch, very tailored and suitable for men as well as women.

Wool soap sacks are an easy and useful loom knitting project! 

I have to admit, my husband makes a mess in the bathroom with all of his little soap chips. He absolutely refuses to use them, despite my protests.  To my surprisehe was actually excited that I was making him one of these. Score one for the long suffering wife! These little soap holders will felt as they are used and hold in all of those annoying pieces.  Make them up for your home or in a bath set as a gift, include a homemade washcloth to make it extra special.

The free pattern can be found here on our website:  Free loom knit soap sack pattern and includes 2 versions!
