Waldorf Rainbow Nesting Bowls

 

Crochet Rainbow Nesting Bowls Toy

In honor of my beautiful April 2015 Rainbow Baby Boy I have decided to stray from my usual color choices (scary stuff!) and go a little crazy. These colorful Waldorf bowls are designed to promote spatial awareness. Little ones are attracted to their bright colors and will stack and nest them for hours!

Materials
Worsted weight yarn in five rainbow colors
(I used Red Heart Super Saver Acrylic yarn in rainbow colors. Use cotton yarn to make them for babies who still put everything in their mouths!)
3.75 mm hook
Yarn needle

 

Skill
Magic ring (mr)
Single Crochet (Sc)
Sc in back loop (BL)

Instructions
Stagger your increases following the pattern so you don’t end up with an octagon shaped bottom. While crocheting the bottom and BL only round, join rounds with a slst and ch 1. Use a stitch marker and do not join, but crochet around until you start the final (slst) round!
