Crochet Brulee

Mini Crocheted Votives…
The two individual Creme Brulees we bought didn’t last long with my husband around, so all I was left with was the small bowls they came in.

Using my current favourite wool, I crocheted some small jackets to make these plain bowls into attractive votives.

I simply did a chain to go around the circumference of the bowl and joined with a slip stitch.

Then I did rounds of half double crochets (hdc) until it was nearly big enough to cover the bowl, finishing with a round of single crochets (sc).

Quick and colourful.
