Zero waste reusable crochet soap saver pattern - Soap socks
These cute little zero waste reusable crochet soap savers have 2 distinct uses: - Use them for travel to carry your soap and shampoo bars around so you don’t get soap all over your toiletries - Use it as a washcloth with integrated soap. The acrylic yarn prevents the sock from felting or losing shape with hot water and is just scratchy enough to give you a little scrub at the same time. You can make them in cotton yarn if you prefer a soft touch.
You like to gift soaps? Make these cute little pouches to gift them in. They work up in no time and add a lot of personality to your gift. Plus, no need for wrapping paper which helps the planet too.

Knitting with Chopsticks
I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. I created Knitting with Chopsticks (www.knittingwithchopsticks.com) to share my creations and help you make your own.
It’s thanks to blogs that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting whe n I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.
Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).
