Quick Easy Bowl Cozies

 

Quick, yarn stash busting, super handy bowl cozy – seriously the most used crochet item in our house! I mean think about how many times you have served a bowl of chili or warmed it up in the microwave and…Ouch! It is just too hot to handle. Every time I reached for a pot holder to put under the bowl, I thought I need to make a bowl cozy. I mean, Why not? We made them for coffee cups. Why should the mugs get all the love? Well I finally did it and since it uses two strands of worsted weight or your favorite medium weight yarn it works up super quick in only ten rounds! It can’t get better than that.

Not only will this cozy use up some of your extra yarn hanging around, but it makes a wonderful house warming gift, wedding gift, or any occasion gift for the soup lovers in you life. Keep in mind these cozies are shaped to fit the wider style bowls and not the taller style bowls. Check out the notes before the pattern on how to adjust it to a taller style bowls.

In order to adjust this for the taller or deeper style bowl, work the pattern until you reach the bowl width and just jump to row ten and repeat that row until it is tall enough.

    Hi! Maybe I misunderstood, but do these bowls go in the microwave? And how have they held up? You used regular yarn not cotton, right?

      I used worsted weight yarn and I have used them in the microwave with no ill affects. I would imagine cotton would be microwavable but I would test it first.

    On the bowl cozies can you use them in the microwave?

      I can say for sure if they can be, but I can say my cozies are made from 100% acyrlic worsted weight yarn and I have used them in the microwave and have seen no problems with them.

    What is a magic circle?

      When you make your slip knot on your hook, leave a long tail. Then wrap that tail into a circle and crochet around two threads. You can find many tutorials on how to make a magic circle for crochet online. I have not written a tutorial for it yet.

    Why turn the work when it’s circular?

      I have always turned my work, but it is not necessary.
