What a great gift idea, and this also makes a good beginner project! It wont take you long to knit this holder, then add some sweet smelling soaps. Display on bathroom wall, for a decoration, and to hold soaps! This will scent up the bathroom nicely too. Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles, US # 7. Finished size is about 12 inches long. Directions how to complete with bottom pleats.
