Simple Crochet Bowl

Whether you have purchased a crochet kit with a 2.5mm hook and lots of lovely salvaged embroidery silks, or whether you have a kit with a 7mm hook and chunky yarn, this pattern can be for you!

The chunky yarn and large hook will give you a quick make and a large bowl, and the embroidery silks will try your patience and give you a magical pot for tiny treasures!



The technique is the same no matter what size hook and yarn are used: I used a 4.5mm hook and chunky cotton yarn to make the bowl in the photograph so;



To make a spiral based crochet bowl, rounds are not joined so it’s important to keep count, or place a stitch market as you make the first stitch of each round.




Either chain 4 and join with a slip stitch OR make a magic loop..


Round 1: work 8 double crochet into the ring


Round 2: then without joining the round work 2 dc into the back of the next double crochet and continue working 2dc into the back of each dc until there are 16 stitches.


Round 3: *work 1 dc into the back of the next dc, 2 dc into the back of the next dc* repeat until there are 24 stitches.


Round 4: *1 dc into the back of each of the next 2 dc, 2 dc into the back of the next dc* repeat until there are 32 stitches.


Round 5: *1 dc into the back of each of the next 3 dc, 2 dc into the back of the next dc* repeat until there are 40 stitches.


Round 6: *1 dc into the back of each of the next 4 dc, 2 dc into the back of the next dc* repeat until there are 48 stitches.


Round 7: work 1 dc into the back of each dc = 48 stitches


Round 8: work 1 dc normally into each dc of previous round – the spiral ridge visible on the base will disappear and the sides of the bowl will be ‘regular’ double crochet stitches.


Continue working as round 8 until the bowl is the height desired.


Last round: work 1 slip stitch into the next 2 dc to even out the bump created by the end of one round and the start of the next.


Then work Crab Stitch – 1 dc into each dc of previous round WORKING BACKWARDS/ from left to right.


Slip stitch the last dc to the first dc of the crab stitch round, cut the yarn leaving a long tail, pull the tail through to the inside of the bowl and darn in the tail.

Enjoy your bowl!
