This pattern makes a GREAT stash-busting scrap-user-upper. If you have about an ounce of yarn, you have enough to make a soap saver bag! These make great gifts for both men and women, plus these are great for selling at craft fairs, especially if you can get yourself next to the handmade soap booth!
