Here is my free crochet pattern for a bathroom hand soap cozy. It’s great if you don’t have one of them high-class containers for your bathroom hand soap as it hides the store-bought bottle. Not only that, but it also adds to the decor especially if you have other crocheted items in the bathroom.
It’s a great way to add your personal touch.
This cozy is crocheted from the bottom up. I realized after I wrote the original pattern that it might have been better to work it from the top down and leave the bottom open. But, I improvised and added a string to the top in order to close it up nice and tight.
This one still looks good, but if I design another cozy pattern it will most likely be worked from the top down for a better fit at the top.
