Soap Socks

In the last week I've had 3 or 4 people ask me for my pattern... so I guess it's time to write it out!

Easy Soap Sock

Sugar'n Cream dishcloth solid

size 7 dpns

size E crochet hook

CO 31 and divide across 3 dpns (10, 10, 11)

Join and knit one round, when you get to the last stitch k2tog with the first stitch (10,10,10)

Rnd 2: *k2tog, yo* repeat for entire round

Rnd 3: k

Rnd 4: either begin seed stitch here, or k in new color (as pictured) for 2 rounds.

Rnd 6: begin seed stitch if you haven't all ready

Continue in seed stitch until sock measures approximately 5"

Arrange stitches on 2 needles (15,15) and turn inside out. Using a third needle, bind off using the 3 needle bind off. Weave in ends.

Crochet a cord (used color from round 4 in picture), and thread through eyelets.

Put your favorite soap in your new soap sock and tie off. Makes a great gift!
