ABOUT OUR DESIGNER

Brenna Eaves is the one-woman team behind Little Raven Fiber Arts. A self-taught fiber artist with more than 13 years’ experience building things with stitches, she has the type of yarn stash that, if unraveled and tied end to end, would stretch to the moon and back. Though also an accomplished knitter, cross-stitcher, writer, artist, and graphic designer, crochet is her happy place. She lives and works out of Wisconsin.

FULL PATTERN

DISH 

Ch 2 or magic ring

Rnd 1: 7 sc in 2nd ch from hook / ring (7)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (14)

Rnd 3: *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next sc* rep *-* around (21)

Rnd 4: *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 2 sc* rep *-* around (28)

Rnd 5: *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 3 sc* rep *-* around (35)

Rnd 6: sc in 1st 3 sc, *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc* rep *-* 6x, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last sc (42)

Rnd 7: in FLO, *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 10 sc* rep *-* 2x (46)

Rnd 8: now in both loops, sc in 1st 5 sc, *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 11 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 10 sc*, rep *-*, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last 5 sc (50) 

Rnds 9-10: sc in each sc around (50)

Rnd 11: ch 1, slp st in next sc, *ch 1, slp st in next sc* rep *-* around

FO and weave in ends.

Reattach yarn to the back loops from Rnd 7, slp st around, FO and weave in ends. This creates a nice “foot” around the base of the dish to mimic ceramic, and it also helps to firm and lift the sides of the dish for a better bowl shape.



Next, let’s choose our character! All characters except the mouse have all features (aside from detail embroidery and eyes) built into their patterns for minimal assembly!

MOUSE

Ears - make 2
