Happy Monday everyone!
I have the most fabulous new project to show you!
It is so easy and FUN to do!
I made this fabulous fiber bowl simply from crocheting a single crochet stitch around wool roving strands!
I first saw the inspiration from a photo on Pinterest and followed the link to www.craftsanity.com .
I immediately purchased the PDF issue of Volume 2 and quickly jumped to pages 40 & 41 to read how to make these amazing bowls!
The technique is so fun and easy to do that I have already made 3 bowls that I will show you in the coming days.
This is my first one in the process of crocheting it, and I love how it turned out!
It reminds me of a volcano!
I used Olive Medley Amazing Yarn from Lion Brand crocheted with a G hook around a 1/2" or so diameter strip of wool roving that I purchased from A Child's Dream Come True.
It is crocheted free form in a circular pattern, increasing and decreasing stitches at will to make the bowl fatter and skinner until it was the height and shape I liked.
For the last 2 rows, I used only the Amazing yarn and did one row of single crochet and then for the second and final row, I made a bobble stitch around to form the edging.
I love finding new ways to incorporate all of my favorite fibers together!
It is soooooo FUN to use the wool roving and make a very thick and pliable piece of yarn while you are actually making the bowl/basket.
I can see so many applications for this technique such as baskets, coasters, hats, table runners, scarves and toys!
Changing the fibers to nylon, jute, cotton or rope, you can apply this techinque to making baskets, rugs and more!
Please let me know if you try this too!
I would love to see what you create!
I will show you my second bowl tomorrow and my 3rd bowl next week!
