Crochet Jewelry Bowl Pattern

Crochet Jewelry Bowl

The yarn I use in this Crochet Jewelry Bowl Pattern was given to me a few months back by my Aunt. At the time I received it I thought, “No wonder she is giving it away!”

Ever since then when I’ve been looking through my balls of yarn I would catch a glimpse of it and cringe!

But when I went searching for the right yarn to use for this crochet jewelry bowl it became likable to me instantly.

Isn’t it funny that when you choose the right yarn for the right project that a yarn which once seemed ugly now suddenly becomes attractive.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Crochet ProjectsThe Complete Idiot’s Guide to Crochet Projects

Review by Amazon Customer, O.Cortez-Figueroa – May 9, 2008

“Not just for Beginners – Very Modern, Fun and Original Projects”

I didn’t think I’d like an “Idiot’s Guide” to crochet this much. I’m not a beginner and I LOVE this book!

I just bought this book and it is full of very fun, colorful and original projects. I have a lot of crochet books but none of them have this much RECENT and modern variety. The instructions and pictures are very clear. I wish they had more pics online. You’d see how cool this book is.

    I just finished making this and mine doesnt look so pretty :( I used a Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight yarn and it just doesnt seem stiff enough. Is that an 8ply DK yarn? I didn’t know exactly what that was so I gave the ww a shot.
    Also the first couple rounds I do on the bowl and the lid turn out really thick (the beginning of the circle when I sc into the middle) so it doesnt sit flat. Im not quite sure what I am doing wrong??
    Then all the rnds that I join a slip stitch in the bowl there is just a flat seam going down so the bowl isnt perfectly round.
    I absoulutly love how yours turned out and would appreciate any advice you may have so I can give it another shot. I am trying to make one for my mom for Christmas. Thanks so much in advance.

    • Paula says:

      The yarn is a stiff medium worsted weight yarn and it’s possible that the yarn you are using may be too thick or isn’t stiff enough for this project and that is why you would get a really thick center and a floppy bowl/lid.

      As for the bowl not turning out perfectly round, the only thing that I can think of is you may not be joining into the correct stitch at the end of the round. If you take a look at the video tutorials you will be able to see where you need to join.

      I hope that this helps you out Stefanie and I hope your mom likes this as her Christmas present!

      • Stefanie says:

        Can you tell me what brand/kind of yarn yours was? Ive checked all the craft shops asked all kinds of employees and they cant tell me which yarns are 8 ply and the labels dont say. I used a medium worsted weight yarn which is what pattern says but it didnt work. Ive read on the web that worsted weight (4) is 10ply so should I use the yarn one catagory down a 3? And also I dont understand what the “Stiff” yarn means. Can you explain that? They all seem soft and not at all stiff. I am in the USA if that makes a difference. Sorry to be a hassle I am just confused and want to make sure I get the right yarn before starting again :) Thanks

        • Paula says:

          My yarn brand is ‘Craftworks’ and the kind is ‘Acrylic Shades 8 ply’. It was purchased in Australia so it may be unlikely that you can purchase it in the U.S.

          Look for a 100% acrylic yarn as this will give the project the stiffness you need and yes I’d try taking it down to a category 3 yarn also. Let me know how the category 3 yarn goes and if it works out for you then I will modify the type of U.S. yarn on the pattern.

          Sorry I didn’t make it clear about needing an acrylic yarn. Thanks for being so patient Stefanie. :-)

          • Stefanie says:

            Thanks for all your quick responses Paula and for all the wonderful patterns.

          • Paula says:

            Thank you very much, Stefanie. :-)

  2. Stefanie says:

    Ok so I finished the pattern again and it turned out great! I still used the worsted weight size 4 yarn 100% acrylic. I just had to correct a few mistakes I made on the first try so that it would turn out amazing like yours. Practice makes perfect. I am actually making some face scrubbies to put in the bowl and giving it to my mom with her face wash as one of her Christmas gifts. So excited, hope she loves it! Thanks again.

    • Paula says:

      That’s terrific news, Stefanie! I’m so glad it worked for you this time around. No doubt your mom will love it!

    • Crystal says:

      That is a great idea for Christmas gifts. I think I will steal your idea!!!!!!! Thanks

  3. Padma says:

    Hi,
    Thank you for all the wonderful tutorials. I’m a beginner and have learnt a lot from your videos. I’m currently making this bowl. I wanted a bigger bowl so I made 9 rounds in the bottom. Now when I’m doing my sides, I see that rather than a rectangular shape, I get a trapezoidal shape ie., my sides are opening out. So I counted the stitches and I see that there is one stick added for every row. Do you have any idea where I might be going wrong? Thanks again

    Padma

    • Paula says:

      Hi Padma, it sounds to me like you are adding in an extra stitch at the end of each round. Count your stitches as you work around each round so you don’t end up with these extra stitches.

  4. ioana says:

    i made 3 and i give to my friends. thanks for your pattern. i made one from thin rope and is great! thanks again.

    • Paula says:

      That’s great, Ioana! I like the idea with the thin rope. Very creative!

  5. Incredible! Keep it up. :-D
