Beautifully made crochet, it looks very complicated but I sure would love to know how to make a beautiful crochet like this one.

so……..given I have never crocheted a stitch in my life, but would love to learn how so I can make these…..anyone have any suggestions for a good resource/tutorial??! thx :)

love love these


My grandmother used to have these in her home… her variation: use them as cup holders/coasters. No mess!

These are darling! What a neat project – and so much more approachable than crocheting an enormous afghan. I think you’ve just inspired me to relearn how to crochet. Thanks! :)

I know the basic chain stitch and I think these would be perfect to practice and learn on as any mistakes will make it more original and still a useable piece

Now these are cute! Unfortunately I am hopeless at crocheting! Maybe I can convince my sister in law to have a go.


I can’t help it–I love making crochet bowls! You can see pictures on my site for more ideas!


For folks looking to learn how to crochet, I picked up the book “I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting” (despite the ridiculous title), a hook, and a skein of yarn. Now I’m doing tons of projects and absolutely love it. Good luck!


What size crochet hook do you use for these precious bowls? thanks for tutorial.


what size crochet hook did you use . Plan to make them for my friends as gifts.Very Cute
