Hermione the Unicorn by Dawn Toussaint, a Ravelry download: How cute is this!? Crochet Bowl Tutorial. Hello Lovelies, here is my photo tutorial for crocheting a bowl like the ones above.

Crochet Bowl Tutorial

First lets talk yarn. For this project you will preferably need some cotton yarn or similar. Stretchy or woolly yarn will not have the strength to allow the bowl to maintain its shape. This is my random selection of cottons and cotton blend yarns. I think there is some bamboo in there also. The next thing to consider is hook size. This bowl is made in a continuous spiral so even though I'm writing about rounds there is no start and finish point to each round and it is important to have a stitch marker ( I use a safety pin ) to remember where each round begins and ends. This tutorial is for 6 inch bowl....the biggest size I've made (on the left in ths picture above ) At the end of this tutorial are instructions for making the smaller sizes . So lets make a start shall we. Holding two strands together make a slip knot in the normal way.... Next chain 2........ Insert hook in the first chain........ Granny Stripe Blanket. Hello my lovelies, great to be here in the Attic :: truthfully I should not be tucked up nattering in the Attic at all, should be attending to the business of making clean the piles of dirty laundry and packing/preparing for our trip away in Connievan tomorrow (woooooooohooooooo, four nights away by the coast!!!!)

You can find the SLIPPER SIZE, YARN and HOOK specifications at the end of this article !!! (To see more of my patterns, please visit my ONLINE SHOP!) I am an addict. An addict for crochet slippers. It all began when I saw slippers similar to these somewhere on the internet. I loved them so much I couldn’t get their tempting image out of my head. All I needed was a pattern. But because I am terribly, terribly impatient, I found creating my own pattern quicker than looking for an official one on the web.

And since I’m no crochet guru, the pattern turned out to be really simple. Actually, these slippers might be the simplest slippers in the universe. Or not. But they might. This is what I did… Round 1: 5 ch (chain stitch); join into ring with sl st (slip stitch) Round 2: 3 ch; 7 dc (double crochet stitch) into the center of the ring; join with sl st Round 3: 3 ch; 1 dc into first stitch; 2 dc into each next stitch; join with sl st.

Hundreds (maybe thousands?) Of people have by now made the Starflower Mandala (the pattern has been viewed some 65 000 times! - and counting!) YAY!
