THE BOWL COVER – Orange Yarn and a 5mm hook

 

To Start

ch 3, sl st in beginning st to form a ring

Round 1

ch 2 and dc 11 ( ch 2 counts as 1st st) (12 sts)

Round 2

ch 2 and dc into the top of the beginning chain 2. DC 2 into all sts around (24 sts)

Round 3

ch 2 and dc into the top of the beginning chain 2. * DC 1 into the next st. DC 2 into the next stitch * repeat. Sl st in top of beg ch. (36 sts)

Round 4

ch 2 and dc into the top of the beginning chain 2. * DC 1 in the next TWO sts.

DC 2 into the next stitch * repeat. Sl st in top of beg ch. (48 sts)

If your bowl is smaller you may be done increasing. You want to stop if you have reached one round past the bottom of your bowl. Just when you reach the main size of the bowl. Once it does you want to start doing 1 DC in all sts around.

My bowl is bigger so I need to increase one more time.

Round 5

ch 2 and dc into the top of the beginning chain 2. * DC 1 in the next THREE sts.

DC 2 into the next stitch * repeat. Sl st in top of beg ch. (60 sts)

You want to do row after row of * DC 1 in all sts around, sl st in beg st * ch 2 and begin next row. Until your crochet reaches the lip of the bowl or as close as you can get it without going over. Remember your crochet will stretch. If your cover is to big then you need to back up and do one less increase round. If your cover is to tight, then you need to back up and increase one more round.

Now you’re ready to make the lip.

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
