Pattern Description:

An awesome project for the beginning crochet student! This flat bottomed nesting bowl pattern works up quickly with beautiful results.

Perfectly sized to nestle inside each other, these five bowls contribute an organic warmth and softness to your decor. The flat bottom makes them very stable, without the wobble found in traditionally shaped fiber bowls.

The 6 page PDF file includes helpful tips throughout along with 19 full color, step-by-step photos.

All instructions are written out completely with the beginner in mind, using no abbreviations. Includes both USA and UK notation. Requires knowledge of the following stitches:
chain stitch
slip stitch
single crochet (double crochet in the UK)
working through back loop

Materials needed:
G-6 (4.25 mm) crochet hook
5 ounces (142 grams) worsted weight yarn
Blunt yarn needle

You can sell bowls made from this pattern, of course.

Bowls are worked with two strands of yarn held together. When selecting yarn for this project, keep in mind that cotton makes a soft and sturdy bowl, acrylic is a tad floppy alone, but works well when blended with other fibers, wool creates cozy texture, while blends such as alpaca, linen, or metallic fibers add unique depth and richness to your final project.

Final measurements for the five bowls as pictured, from largest to smallest:
5.5 inches wide, 2.5 inches deep (14 cm wide, 6.3 cm deep)
4.5 inches wide, 2.25 inches deep (11.5 cm wide, 5.8 cm deep)
3.75 inches wide, 1.75 inches deep (9.5 cm wide, 4.5 cm deep)
3.25 inches wide, 1.5 inches deep (8.4 cm wide, 3.8 cm deep)
2.75 inches wide, 1.25 deep (7 cm wide, 3.2 cm deep)

They are also quite functional, excellent for organizing keys, pocket change, jewelry, decorative stones, pine cones, nuts, candy, office supplies, hair clips, keys, your cell phone, sewing notions....

Gauge:

Gauge is not critical for this project. Any hook and yarn combination that gives you a dense, tight fabric will work.
