More Crochet Adventures

I took up Lyn’s challenge to crochet a wool bowl then felt it.  I got as far as making a small bowl.  I haven’t had time to felt it yet, but will show you the results when I do.  It’s a little floppy now, but should be firmer after felting.

Then I’ve continued to try new stitches.  Here is the Box stitch which is alike on both sides.

The Crocodile Scale stitch was a bit of a challenge but  definitely has interesting dimension.  It looks like little tongues or leaves, too.

Of course, I had to try a hexagon, this one has a flower center.

Spring is finally here in the Midwest, so I couldn’t resist the Tulip stitch.  Here it is in one color.

 

Then I tried another Tulip stitch and learned how to change colors. It looks entirely different. I decided to finish it with the same stitching as the bottom.

 

Here is the back.

The front really looks like like mini tulips.

My sister Carol’s ewe Dusty recently had a new lamb.  13 lbs. 12 oz!

Happy Spring! (For those of you that are experiencing it now.)

    Wow – love the bowl and can’t wait to see it fulled. The colour is great on its own, but if you made another, could it be interesting to add decorative stitching to it, pre-fulling, with 100% wool yarn and a big needle?
    I really like the crocodile stitch and the variegated colours on the tulip stitch are beautiful.

      Thanks Lyn! The bowl is only about 3 inches high. I’m not sure how much of a design I could put on it.

      I was pleased with the tulip stitch with the colors. The crocodile was definitely a challenge, but looks fun.

    The felted bowl should turn out great. My friend does those in knitting and they are quite popular. They get really firm when fulled. Are you going to throw it in the washing machine? Love the tulips, great job.

      Thanks Ruth! I had planned to full it by hand since it’s so small. I don’t usually use a hot wash for anything alhtough a warm wash may be good enough. I can try that.
