Fasten off leaving a long tail (about 24") to sew it on with. Using the yarn needle, sew the pocket to the inside of the palm (which ever hand you choose) between Rows 10 and 24. See illustration.
I sewed across the top of the pocket, down the left side, across the bottom and half way back up the right side. The opening on the right side of the pocket is where you insert the soap pieces. I placed the opening there to keep the soap pieces from falling out so easily. NOTE: Be careful to keep your stitches invisible to the other side of the mitt when you sew the pocket on.
The pocket in this soap mitt is used for
scraps of soap you usually end up throwing away. Just slip the soap in the pocket and wash away.
Place both mitt sides together with the pocket in between the pieces. Attach yarn in corresponding stitches of both pieces in the bottom right hand corner. Sc in the same space as joining. Sc in corresponding stitches around entire mitt. At the thumb you should place 3 sc at the tip.
