This is not an exact pattern for an exact size of a bowl or a flat mat. You will learn the method of increasing to make a circle and then how to make it curve around to form a bowl. You need to know how to make a chain, chain circle, slip stitches, and single crochets for this pattern.
This is my third crocheting pattern. I am sharing to the best of my ability, as I am not an expert. I am a professional longarm quilter by day and crafter during my free time! I published my Crocheted Flower Tie and my Crocheted Lazy Daisy Pattern and they are available right here.
