To Start

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

 

 

Round 1

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.

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.
