Today I have a Ta Dah! My first ever crochet bowl - too small to be a basket and too floppy as well.
I love the way that the lightweight of it means that I can fold it up into different shapes.
This was made using a single strand of Rowan cotton for the base worked in rounds of trebles and then the sides were worked again in a single strand this time of Rico Cotton in double crochet and then I whipped stitched around the edge with the last of the Rowan first one way and then the other. I have no idea if this is how one is supposed to crochet a bowl, but there aren't any rules really are there, so I did what I wanted to do!
I am really pleased with this and it is doing a great job of squishing into my crochet basket and holding either ends or whatever I am working on. I fear though that I could easily become hooked (sorry!) on making these.
Actually, I have some more of the Rico Cotton yarn so I am already thinking that I might make some more! After all everyone needs some useless crochet bowls around the place don't they......
