I love Halloween decor and my favorite Halloween character has always been the witch, so that means cauldrons!
While I was making these Crochet Cauldron Bowl Cozies, I was thought about how they would make for cute Halloween decorations.
They could be used to house a bowl of spider rings or sticky eyeballs to give out to Trick o’ Treaters, and of course candy!

Written in U.S. Terms
- This pattern is worked with double strands, unless otherwise indicated.
- This pattern is worked from the bottom-up in the round. Only join where indicated.
- Beginning chains do not count as stitches.
- Where asterisks appear, repeat the instructions between them.
- Optional: For deeper bowls, continue working the bottom section until it matches the height of your bowl. This is not necessary as the cozy will still cover the majority of the bowl, but is an option if you want the bowl completely covered.
- If you have trouble keeping stitches tight, go down to a J/10/6.00mm Crochet Hook.
- Tutorial photos are on the last page.
- I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Yarn in Black and Hot Green/Hot Orange/Black Currant.
