Pattern By
Petra Orrbeck of Magasin Duett

Yarns
1 skein of Magasin Duett Aran tweed

Tools & Materials
6 mm crochet hook
A stitch marker that can be opened

Abbreviations
st – stitches
ch – chain
sc – single chain

Instructions
Begin
You´ll start with the bottom of the bowl and to make a flat crocheted piece you´ll increase 6 st at every row. If you want to, you can use a stitch marker that you move one step up for every row – this will make it easier to see where the round begins.

Ch 4 and join with the first chain to form a ring. Make 6 sc in the ring.

Continue 
Round 1: Make 2 st in every sc – put the stitch marker at the end of the row. 
Round 2: Make 2 st in every second sc – move the stitch marker to the end of this row.
Round 3: Make 2 st in every third sc – move the stitch marker to the end of this row.
Round 4 and the following rows: Continue like before making one more stitch between the increases of every row.  Stop when the bottom measures about 20 cm in diameter.
Next row and the following rows: Remove the stitch marker and make one sc in the back loop of each sc – continue like this without increases , round and round until the bowl measures about 15-20 cm.

End
Weave in the ends and put the bowl in warm water with some liquid detergent  to remove the spinning oil from the yarn. If you want the bowl to felt a little you can put it in the tumble dryer for a while.
