This little crocheted bowl is worked in a circle using double and treble crochet. The edge of the bowl is finished with picot edging.crocheted bowl pattern

To make a larger bowl, you could either use heavier weight yarn and a larger hook, or when making the base of the bowl, you can continue increasing for more rounds instead of just 8, then continue with the pattern.

How to Make a Crocheted Bowl

Please be aware that being English I have used British crocheting terms! At the end of each round, join the last stitch to the first with a slip stitch.

Make 4 ch, join with ss OR make a magic ring.

1. 6 dc into the ring. Join with ss.

2. 1 ch, then *2 dc into next st* 6 times. 12 stitches.

3. 1 ch, then *1 dc into next st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 18 stitches.

4. 1 ch, then  *1 dc into next st, 1 dc into next st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 24 stitches.

5. 1 ch, then *1 dc into each of next 3 st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 30 stitches.

6. 1 ch, then *1 dc into each of next 4 st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 36 stitches.

7. 1 ch, then *1 dc into each of next 5 st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. Join with ss. 42 stitches.

8. 1 ch, then *1 dc into each of next 6 st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 46 stitches.

9. 1 ch, then 1 dc into each stitch.

10. 1 ch, then 1 ch, then *1 dc into each of next 7 st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 54 stitches.

11. 1 ch, then 1 dc into each stitch.

12. 1 ch, then 1 ch, then *1 dc into each of next 8 st, 2 dc into next st* 6 times. 60 stitches.

13. 1 ch, then 1 dc into each stitch.

14. Repeat row 13.

15. 2 ch, then 1 tr into each stitch.

16. 1 ch, then 1 dc into each stitch.

17. Repeat row 15.

18. Repeat row 16.

19. This row makes the shell edging. 2 ch, then 4 tr into 3rd st from hook, *1 dc into 3rd stitch along, 5 tr into next 3rd stitch along* until the edging has been made all the way round.

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

I’m going to be using my little crocheted bowl for all the bits of Lego that find their way into the washing machine!

I used this yarn from Hobbycraft and a 3.5 mm crochet hook from this set from Amazon. These are affiliate links.

About AnnaWilson

I'm Anna and I live in Norfolk with my four beautiful boys, my husband and a three legged cat. I don't have an actual craft room due to the fact that we are six messy people living in a not very big house. I do however have a pile of unfinished projects. Thankfully there is plenty of room in cyberspace, so make a cup of tea, pull up a chair and make yourself at home! And please leave me comments! And maybe like me on Facebook :)
