Looking for a soap cover pattern

UPDATE: Thanks to the awesome people who commented – it was on Ravelry after all. I swore I searched for “soap” and didn’t see it. Really, I did look! But it is called a “soap sweater” and was just what I was looking for! You guys rock, thanks again!

This is driving me nuts. I remember reading somewhere about a “soap cozy” (or something like that) where you knit around a bar of soap (it’s not a bag with a drawstring) and then it felts down whenever it’s used. Anyone know of the pattern? It seems easy enough, but I wanted to see it again before making it and it’s driving me nuts because I can’t find it. It was for one of those oval soaps and not a square bar. Or maybe this was my imagination? Dammit, I knew I should’ve bookmarked it! If anyone knows it, please tell me!!!

I think I found it. Its on Knitting Pattern Central.com under Bath, its called the soap sweater. It felts as you use it and it was so far the only one that I see that can be used with an oval shape soap and doesn’t have a draw string hanging off of it. Hope its what your looking for.Have a great weekend.

When on Ravelry, go to patterns and type the word “soap” in the search and you’ll find a whole variety!

I have a different one I think. My LYS does these as a kids class, but it’s not knitted, so it may not be what you were thinking about.

What does bockstark mean (pronounced bok-shtark)? My crazy German friend, Matthias, made that word up to mean "really cool" and says that it is catching on in Garmisch. So I am helping him popularize the word! I thought if I ever opened a yarn store, I would call it "Bockstark Yarns". This blog is all about my projects, yarns and crazy ideas related to knitting and other crafts. Contact me at bockstark.knits(at)gmail(dot)com.
