Soap Saver Bag supplies:
Most of all you need some yarn.
Cotton yarn would be a great choice or a cotton-linen blend. Some people like to use whatever yarn they use for their dish cloths.
However, I would say, simply use whatever you have at home.
Since this is a crochet project, you will need a crochet hook. Make sure that it is the appropriate size for your yarn. If in doubt, you can always check the label. However, it doesn’t hurt to go slightly bigger than what is says. You want this to be rather loose than a very densely crocheted bag.
Lastly, you will need a darning needle. Regular sewing needles will be too small here.

How to crochet this soap saver bag:
Start by casting on chain stitches. I needed 15 stitches for my 3.5 oz soap bar. You will want to check your gauge, though, with your yarn, your crochet hook, and the size of your bar of soap.
Ideally, the length of your chain will go over the short side of the soap bar and the sides. I like my soap saver to be generous in size so I went a bit bigger than what I needed.
