Felted Crochet Bowl Pattern- Easy Teacher Gift Idea

Here's a quick and easy pattern for the felted bowls I sell in my shop. This year, my baby girl is in preschool, and with three teachers, I thought these little bowls filled with chocolates would make a thoughtful, easy, handmade gift. I wrapped them in tissue paper and attached the cards that Ani made.





Here's the pattern:

Felted Crochet Bowl

Materials needed:
Worsted weight 100% wool yarn (I used Paton's Classic Wool)
Size H crochet hook
Yarn needle
Wool felt for heart applique
Embroidery Floss
Embroidery Needle

Abbreviations
ch- chain
dc- double crochet
sc- single crochet
inc- increase
fo- fasten off
slst- slip stitch
*ch 3 is not included in stitch count

1.  Starting with a magic ring, ch 3, 12 dc, slst in 3rd ch of ch 3 (12)
2.  ch 3, dc inc in each st around, slst in 3rd ch of ch 3 (24)
3.  ch 3, *dc inc, dc* around, slst in 3rd ch of ch 3 (36)
4.  ch 3, *dc inc, 2 dc* around, slst in 3rd ch of ch 3 (48)
5-10.  ch 3, dc around, slst in 3rd ch of ch 3 (48)
11. ch 1, sc around, slst in ch 1, fo (48)

Wash in hot water with a little bit of detergent to felt. Use the bottom of a jar to shape the bowl and allow to dry completely. Cut out a heart out of contrasting felt and sew on the bottom inside of the bowl with embroidery thread. Fill with chocolate (or whatever!), wrap with tissue paper, attach a handmade card, and voila! Enjoy!!
