Vintage cotton crochet bowls

Vintage cotton crochet bowls

Made this week by moi for sale at my duck-race-stall next weekend.
I found the vintage cotton in the local antique shop.

It's called Stutt's Candlewick Cotton and is from the 1950s. It's very thick and sturdy to work with- if you wanted something similar you could work with 2 strands of cotton yarn together.

Anyhoo, a short post this week. Too much to do...

..must run.

Want to make a Monk, Kat or Dolly?

CAL coming soon- thanks to everyone for your interest and smashing comments.

Back soon.



  1. Love the baskets, I bet they fly off the shelf at the market. I am thinking a dolly crochet-a-long is a fab idea. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend,

  2. What a find, that cotton looks fabulous and what colours! Your bowls are the perfect way to put it to use.

    So looking forward to your CAL - I have my eye on the monkey!


  3. Crochet bowls are fab! I'll bet you do well at the races.

    Can't decide what I will make yet, but certainly wouldn't mind some Noro to do it with.

  4. Awww v pretty! And lucky you with that excellent find at the antiques shop x

  5. Cor, that cotton's a bit of a find! I'm well jeal (I'm also really down with the kids, you know...)
    I don't think I left a comment on your last post (that's the problem with reading posts on my phone), but just to say that I think a CAL is a brilliant idea and I can't wait to join in!
