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.
Worsted weight medium yarn or medium weight cotton yarn. (1.5 oz or 43g)
-You will be working with two strands at a time!
Hook size M/N (9.mm)
Needle or smaller hook to weave in ends
Stitches and Abbreviations:
Ch – Chain
Slst – Slip Stitch
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
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. I made this cozy to fit my bowls pictured perfectly with out stretching. These cozies have a lot of stretch and will fit most similar bowls.
