A little crochet storage bowl

I'm always in need of storage - you?

I have big baskets for yarn and boxes for projects, tins for hooks and pots for needles.  
But I hadn't got anything for all those little bits.

You know - the  tiny gubbins which find their way down the sides of the sofa - those little stitchmarkers, yarn needles, tape measure...

And then I had a simple idea for a simple bowl.
So I made it.
And I made a video, too.

Want to make one for all your bits and pieces?

Here's the YouTube video, or see below for the written pattern:

 *This pattern is written in UK terms, for US, substitute double crochet for single crochet*  

You will need: 85g  / 17m (approx) tshirt yarn
12mm hook
Yarn needle
Stitch marker

Stitches used:
dc = double crochet
cdc = centre double crochet (to make a cdc, insert your hook into the 'legs' of the stitch  - see pic)

Row 1: 6dc in magic ring
Row 2: 2cdc in each st around. (12 sts)
Row 3: (1cdc, 2cdc in next st) repeat around. (18 sts)
Rows 4 - 5: 1cdc in each st around.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Easy peasy!

Enjoy your week,

  4. Am I in need of storage - well as John Travolta would put it: " I got skeins, they're multiplyin'" :-) Really cute bowl, great idea to crochet storage for your stitch markers.
