I love soap cozies and nothing beats a good soap bar with an amazing fragrance. This is why I came up with this pattern as you can never have enough soap savers.

Gauge: Not needed
- US terms used throughout
- If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, that is not counted as a stitch.
- CH 3 always counts as double crochet.
- Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
- After Row 2, you are going to work in rounds. You will crochet all the way across the row, and down the side, around the bottom and up the other side to turn it into a round.
- Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
- You can start each round as I did in the pattern or you can use a standing stitch or chains, it’s totally up to you!

Row 1: 1 SC in the 2nd CH from the hook, 1 SC in each chain TURN

Row 3/Round 3: CH 1, 2 SC in same ST, 1 SC in next 8 STS, 3 SC in next ST (corner), 1 SC in the side, 3 SC in next ST (that’s the first ST of the bottom, which is a corner), 1 SC in next 8 STS, 3 SC in next ST (corner), 1 SC in the side, 1 SC into the same ST, where you put 2 SC to start the round, join with a SLST to first SC
Round 4: SLST to next ST (that’s the 2nd ST of the round), CH 3 (counts as DC), DC back in the first ST of the round, *SK next ST, DC in next ST, DC in skipped ST (this way you create little DC crosses)* repeat *to* around, join with a SLST to top of CH 3
