Crochet pattern for two nesting bowls with lace detail.

Practical and with a romantic look, these little bowls will have myriad of uses in your home: keys by the front door, cotton buds in the bathroom, rings in the bedroom. Making your own means you can tailor them to your décor and colour scheme.

In double-knitting (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn, the bowls measure approximately:

  • Smaller bowl ---- 11.5cm or 4.5inches diameter
  • Larger bowl ------ 14cm or 5.5inches diameter

Of course you can easily work larger bowls using heavier and varying your hook accordingly!

In double-knitting (light worsted weight, Category 3), you will need:
for the smaller bowl

  • 70m (77yards) of the main colour
  • 12m (13yards) for the lace edging for the larger bowl
  • 105m (115yards) of the main colour
  • 15m (17yards) for the lace edging

You will also need if using double-knitting (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn:

  • a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
  • a 3mm (C-2 or D-3) crochet hook
  • a yarn needle

This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed ‘tutorial-style’ set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don’t need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I’m doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.

This pattern comes with my full support! If you have any difficulties, please contact me. I am a real person and I’d love to hear from you and see pictures of your finished articles
