    Easy for my beginners to do for coasters. Thanks

    It reminds me of hobnail glass.

    Especially a felted version would make a nice contrast of materials if set on a table next to a white hobnail glass bowl.

    I would not use it with LIGHTED candles, but on the foyer table or dresser to catch all the detritus from our pockets! cute and great practice piece – bobbles! maybe a hat?

      I got worried for a second there until I realized you misread the description. No worries, everyone, it says candies. I try to keep my crochet projects away from flames.

    Really nice pattern. I’m pleased with my bowl…but I did omit the row 4 (48 stitches). It was simply too large for my needs for a “nic nac” or candy bowl, or whatever. I started with the dc rows right after round three. My bowl ended up being about 6 1/2 inches in diameter altogether, and 2 1/2 inches tall. I was happier with that size. :-) Was fun to learn the bobble stitch!
