Simple Knit/Cro Sachet
Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
This sachet or pincushion is made by combining knitting with crochet. It is a very basic pattern that would be ideal for a beginner! Here is another idea you can do with this pattern. You could make it with cotton yarn, stuff some bars of soap inside, and use it as a bath scrubber. But of course you may just want to leave one side open and put in a drawstring so you can change the soap.
