This soft crochet bowl pattern is a project that does not take long to make at all. If I can make it in just over an hour, I would anticipate a beginner making it in at least an afternoon. That is with a rest period just in case your hands and arms get tired.

Beautiful fall DIY home decor.
In this photo, the completed crochet basket is shown. However, I like to use the basket on a side table with colorful fall foliage tucked inside. so pretty.
Lion Brand Hometown USA Yarn
This yarn I have fallen in love with. It is a bulky yarn that is soft and smooth. Sometimes, bulky yarn can be difficult to work with because a strand or two is not caught with the hook and it is not noticed for a row or two. Now, that drives me crazy when I have to sit there and contemplate pulling out the stitches to that point and doing the work over. I must say that with this yarn, it has not happened yet. In fact, I think that I can actually complete projects faster because it is easier to work with. It doesn’t hurt that the colors are beautiful too.

Picture of Bottom
Here is a picture of the bottom and beginning row of the side of the basket.
Beginning Round 1: 8 SC in Magic circle and SL ST into first CH (insert a stitch marker in this stitch to help you find the beginning and end of each row).
Round 2: 2 SC in each ST and SL ST into first SC. Should be 18 SC in this row. (move the stitch marker to this stitch).
Round 3: *2 SC in first ST, 1 SC in next ST*. Continue this pattern from * until the end of the row and join to the first SC with a SL ST. (Continue to move the stitch marker).
Round 4: *2SC in first ST, 1 SC in next two ST*. Continue this pattern from * until the end of the row and join to the first SC with a SL ST.
Row 5: *2 SC in first ST, 1 SC in next three ST*. Continue this pattern from * until the end of the row and join to the first SC with a SL ST.
Round 6: 1 SC in back loop of each ST until the end of the row and join to the first SC with a SL St. (Continue to move the stitch marker). This is the first row of the sides of the basket.
Rounds 7-13: *1 HDC and 1 SC in the first ST, Skip next ST, 1 HDC and 1 SC in the next ST, Skip the next St*. Continue from * until the end of the row and join to the first SC with a SL St. (Continue to move the stitch marker).
Round 14: Change to the Lion Brand Portsmouth Pumpkin yarn. SC in each ST. SL ST into first ST.
Finishing off: pull the yarn through the last loop. Using the yarn needle, weave in the ends of the yarn.
Crocheting the Flower:
Using the Lion Brand Portsmouth Pumpkin yarn make a magic ring. Leave about a 6-inch tail on the yarn (you will use this to sew the flower onto the basket)
Round 1: 6 SC ending with a SL ST into first SC.
Round 2: CH 4 SC into first ST. CH 4, *SC into next ST*. Continue from * until the last ST. There should be 6 loops. Leave about a 6-inch tail on the end and cut off the excess yarn.
Finishing: Determine the place you would like to add the flower. Using a yarn needle, sew from between the flower and the basket to hide the attaching yarn as much as possible. Weave the yarn between the flower and the basket following the inner circle using both of the extra yarn pieces that were left on the flower. Cut off the excess. Weave in all other yarn ends.
Enjoy your Soft Crochet Bowl and decorate it for a pretty Home Décor DIY.
Changing up the Yarn Colors
This is another version with the two yarn colors done in the opposite way. Make the one that appeals to you and your home decor.
This soft crochet bowl is a bit taller, with two extra rows of crochet on the sides. Also, you will notice that I added three flowers to the side of the bowl.
