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!

Begin Increasing
For the next 3 rows increase 1 stitch at the beginning and end of the row by casting on the sts using the true cable cast on method. Knit those sts as you would any other stitch in the row.
Rows 1-3:  (K1, p1) twice, *k1, repeat from * to last 4 stitches, (K1, p1) twice. (increasing 2 sts each row)
