The Fault in Our Soap

(6) Name: 'Knitting : The Fault in Our Soap
The Fault in Our Soap

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit stitch
  • Purl stitch
  • working in the round

Pattern Description:

The Story: Anyone who has ever read the Fault in Our Stars, or even knows the premise, knows that it is also an emotional rollercoaster like no other. So, after I wiped up my tears and calmed down from my hysterical sobbing, I needed a mental break of sorts and my mental breaks almost always involve knitting. I had always wanted to make a pouch like this, and decided it was time to give it a go. I put the vlogbrothers on auto-play on my computer and spent the next two hours doing very little thinking and lots and lots of knitting. When I was finished, I looked at the object I had just finished and looked at the cover of the book I had just read, and the Fault in Our Soap was born.

The Object: This is a quick, fun little knit that's insanely useful and practical. The pouches make great, cheap (only $1!) little gifts for holidays, birthdays, house-warmings... the gift-giving opportunities are endless. The cotton yarn is sturdy and does well in water. I designed these pouches to be used to hold the left-over remnants of bars of soap, but the large size could fit a regular-sized bar of soap. The seed stitch pattern creates a gentle grainy texture that works great as a loofa.
