TIP: In order for the stitch multiple to work you will need an even number of stitches to begin Rnd 1. If you have an odd number, add an extra stitch.

Rnd 1: Make 1 sc in each st across, rotate the project to work along the row ends. Make 1 sc in each row end, rotate the project to work along the foundation chain. Make 1 sc in each of the unused loops of the foundation chain across, rotate the project to work along the last side edge. Make 1 sc in each of the row ends. Do not join. [22 sc]

Beginning in Rnd 2, you may wish to mark the first st of the round with a stitch marker to help you keep track of the start and end of each round.

Rnd 2: 1 sc and 1 dc in the first st, sk the next st. *1 sc and 1 dc in the next st, sk the next st**. Work from * to ** around. [11 sc, 11 dc]

Rnd 3-Rnd 11: Rep Rnd 2. 

TIP: you can repeat this extra times to make the soap saver bag longer.

At the end of Rnd 11, sl st to the first st to join.

Rnd 12: Ch 2, 1 dc in each st around. Sl st to the first st to join. [12 dc]
