I've made a funny little bowl!
Last Christmas I was given a kit for one of those frilly ruffle scarves...
I love the colours, but the frilly scarf itself isn't really my style. I've been thinking for ages what else I could use the yarn for, and there are ideas out there for other non-scarf uses, but I've struggled to find anything I liked.
So, I decided to crochet it up into a little bowl! I used a 15mm hook, and it was quite hard going, as the yarn is very thick when used in this way, as a single "thread", so to speak. The yarn does not go very far like this, but I managed to get a dinky something.
Apart from struggling with the thickness, it was a quick make, as it's only a few rounds.
(dc = tr for UK)
Round 1: ch 4, sl st into first ch to form ring
Round 2: ch 3, 7 dc into centre, sl st into top of ch 3 [8 st]
Round 3: ch 3, 1 dc into same st, 2 dc into each dc, sl st into top of ch 3 [16 st]
Round 4: ch 3, 1 dc into each dc, sl st into top of ch 3 and finish
Although, I'm not sure what to use the bowl for now! It's a funny little thing. Maybe I'll end up undoing it and making a scarf after all.
What do you think, keep it as a bowl or try something else? Any ideas of what else could be made with this ruffle yarn?
