FREE PATTERN: Basic Soap Sack

Updated: Feb 22

Introducing the “Basic Soap Sack”

Soap sacks are little pouches made from 100% cotton.

You simply put a bar of soap in it, use it as a washcloth, & then hang it from the loop to dry. It’s makes your soap last longer & the perfect solution to those little soap pieces that are hard to use.

They also make cute gifts when added to other SPA related items.

Soap Sacks are quick and easy to work up and are great way to use up scrap cotton yarn. They are an ideal item to crochet & donate to our homeless or to non-profit organizations.

You can find donation information here for:

Finished Size: ~ 5” tall x 3.5” wide


▸ Yarn: 100% 4-ply cotton yarn (suggested yarn: Sugars ‘N Cream or Peaches ‘N Cream) ▸ Yardage: 20 yards ▸ Hook: 5.0mm ▸ Scissors ▸ Darning Needle ▸ Stitch Markers

Stitches & Abbreviations:

US Terminology ▸ * * – Repeat stitch pattern between * ▸ Ch# – Chain the number noted ▸ SS – Slip Stitch ▸ SC – Single Crochet ▸ HDC – Half Double Crochet ▸ TLO – Third Loop Only of HDC Moogly Video Instructions ▸ DC – Double Crochet

Notes & Special Instructions:

▸ Ch 1 at beginning of Rnd does NOT count as a stitch. ▸ Total number of stitches per rnd will be the same throughout: 24 ▸ I tend to crochet TIGHT, so you may need to adjust your hook size &/or beginning number of stitches to accommodate. Note: Gauge is not critical for this item, but the finished sack should comfortably fit an average full size bar of soap (such as Ivory).
