Santa’s Coat Crochet Bowl

Crochet Santa's Coat Bowl

“Santa’s Big Belly full with Goodies”

This year, I decided crocheting a cute little Santa inspired bowl for teachers’ appreciation in my daughters’ school. By applying Santa’s colors with the red yarn and the accent with the white furry edge this bag filled with goodies has a big success. Especially the children asked if they could get one.

Crocheting a Magic Circle
  • With the red yarn make a slip knot and form a magic circle with the tail end. Start by crocheting eight sc stitches. Tighten the circle, make a knot at the tail end, to prevent the circle from opening. Combine the row with a slip stitch.

  • Start with a chain stitch. For the next ten rows continue with 32 sc (one sc in each previous stitch) in each row and combine each rows with a slip stitch. Only in this first row of 32 sc will you use the back loop of the stitch to make a sort of edge.

  • Combine the white acrylic and the fun yarn. Start with a slip knot. Insert the hook where the edged row starts. Make a chain stitch and continue with sc from the rows’ beginnings and along the last row of the bowl. At the end pull yarn through and cut at circa 2 inches from last stitch. Work the tail-ends of the yarn into the project.

Decoration Instruction for Santa Bowl

  1. Add two buttons, three rows from bottom and four rows from top. Fasten the buttons with yarn.
  2. Make two straight cuts horizontal of skinnier side of the glitter tape with exactor knife. Insert black/silver ribbon from back to front through the cut and through front to back on other side to look like a buckle at one end of ribbon. Take the plastic cover off the glue side of glitter tape. Place the belt (ribbon) around the bowl, between the buttons and glue buckle on top the tongue of ribbon part.
  3. Bake cookies and fill plastic bag. Tie the top of plastic bag and place the bag into bowl.

Voilà! It is a fun way to celebrate the season and share a little special gift with other.
