Remember my last post? Nerdy Nesting Bowls? Well I couldn’t just leave them the way they were. I had to follow my nerdiness into the alien abyss. So here is the DW series. Available on Raverly, Craftsy and Etsy.
Like the original Nerdy Nesting Bowl, these are also done in tapestry crochet. What is Tapestry Crochet? Tapestry crochet is basic crochet stitches with the use of more than one color
If you know how to do a basic single crochet and change colors than you already know the basics of tapestry crochet. Unlike in Intarsia (currently popular with graphghans) your additional color or colors is carried along while you make your stitches. The color you are not using stays hidden on the inside of those stitches, until you want to switch colors, giving the finished piece a bit more structure.
There are five bowls in this set with full written directions as well as graphs for each piece. You can begin with the small bowl and create a great place to keep your pens and pencils on your desk. Work up a larger bowl and use it to keep your jewelry at hand or put it on your counter for your keys and extra change at the end of the day.
The smallest bowl is everyone’s favorite villain!
The Middle Bowl comes in three designs. Pick your favorite Doctor! Does he wear a bowtie?
Does he like his 3D glasses?
Or is he a classic that wears the iconic scarf?
The larger of the bowls is the Police Box. You can put this guy on your shelf and put a ton of stuff in it, because like the iconic blue alien….it’s bigger on the inside!
