Filigree Bowl (as seen in Crochet Today)
I designed this bowl for the current issue of Crochet Today and when I was cruising craftster today I saw that one of the members already made it! Hooray! I love that part the best, it makes me feel like the project was successful. This project was really fun to design– there was a lot of figuring as far as the design went (the photo to the far right of my header is an “in progress” shot) and let me tell you: it’s scary to dunk your creation in a sugar/water solution and hope that it really works as a stiffener. It does! I could have thrown the thing at the wall and I don’t think it would have broken (and I was oddly tempted to test my theory, but alas, I had to submit the project).
Anyway, if you’re looking for a quick crochet project, pick up a copy of the mag. This has to be my favorite design for them so far, I even want to make it again so I can keep it. I’ve also got some simple rosettes in the issue- perfect for summer sandals.
