I get it. The foaming dispensers have to look different from the odor-neutralizing soaps which have to look different from the just plain hand soaps or we all might get confused. LOL!!! So I picked out a few different types of bottles, since clearly I was not going to be able to design a one-size-fits-most cover. But, the silver lining is that we now get to have:
SOAP DISPENSER WEEK 2012!!!
(and the crowd goes wild!! Yay!!!!)
I kept these simple, and in the same style as my previous covers, because I think that these covers are just a perfect neutral background for a really cool focal point accessory. And since they don't use a ton of yarn, they are quick to make!
So, let's get started!
Softsoap Pampered Hands Foaming Hand Soap Cover
100% cotton worsted weight yarn, approx. 50 yards (I used Peaches & Creme Scents in Rose Garden)
Size G hook
ch 30, sl st to first ch to join round (30 st)
R1: ch 1, sc in each ch around, sl st to first sc to join round (30 st)
R2: ch 1, sc in each sc around, sl st to first sc to join round (30 st)
R3: ch 1, (4 sc, sc 2 st tog) 5 times, sl st to first sc to join round (25 st)
R4-5: ch 1, sc in each ch around, sl st to first sc to join round (25 st)
R6: ch 1, (3 sc, sc 2 st tog) 5 times, sl st to first sc to join round (20 st)
R7-25: ch 1, sc in each ch around, sl st to first sc to join round (20 st)
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
I hot-glued a bobby pin to the back of a flower I got at the Dollar Tree, to use as an embellishment. You can, of course, put anything you like on the front, or leave it plain! I like being able to wash the covers, which is why I didn't directly attach the flower. The covers get surprisingly grubby! Or is that just me, because I live with a 5 year-old??
Okay! I'll see you tomorrow for Day Two of Soap Dispenser Week!
