Cable Knit Soap Sachet


Cable Knit Soap Sachet

It can be such a hassle to bring soap anywhere. How are you supposed to transport it? Not to mention the soap itself slipping and sliding around in the tub. A Cable Knit Soap Sachet is the perfect remedy for all that ails you. This small knitting project is also a great introduction to cable knitting patterns, as the small amount of cabling will teach you how to cable knit without tiring you out. Try knitting them in your friend's favorite color for a gift, or knit them in a pure, clean white instead of the classic green.

I love this cable knit, it would be a perfect gift bag as well as a soap sachet, you could change colours in between and make it white and red for Christmas, make people's presents a little more personal than a shop bought bag, I think I will give this a go, I think my friends and family would love it!
