Lawn bowls are available in sizes from 11.6 cm to 13.1 cm. The conversion of these dimensions to inches is 4.6 inches to 5.2 inches. The difference in sizes allows the lawn bowl enthusiast the option of several size bowls to use in the gaming process. Crochet a carrier or pocket for an individual lawn bowl in approximately one hour. Sew the individual pockets together to create a multiple lawn bowl carrier.

Things You'll Need

  • 4-ply yarn
  • Size G, 4.25 mm crochet hook
  • Scissors

Tie a slipknot approximately 2 inches from the end of the yarn. Slide the slipknot on the crochet hook. Chain six stitches. Slipstitch the last stitch to the first stitch. Chain one stitch. The chain-one stitch counts as the first stitch in the next row and in each row thereafter.

Crochet one stitch in the same stitch as the chain one. Crochet two single crochet stitches in each stitch around for a total of 12 stitches. Chain one stitch.

Crochet two single crochets in the next stitch. Crochet one single crochet in the next stitch. Repeat the pattern around the row for a total of 18 stitches. Chain one stitch.

Crochet one stitch in the same stitch as the chain one. Crochet two single crochet stitches in each stitch for a total of 36 stitches. Chain one stitch.

Crochet two single crochets in the next stitch. Crochet one single crochet in the next stitch. Repeat the pattern around the row for a total of 18 stitches. Chain one stitch.

Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until the base is 5 1/2 inches round. The number of rows varies depending on the tightness of the crocheting.

Single crochet in each stitch around. Do not connect the rows. Continue to single crochet in each stitch until the lawn bowl carrier is 5 inches tall. This will be approximately 20 rows, depending on the tightness of the crocheting.

Turn the bowling carrier. Single crochet in the next 12 stitches. Turn the bowl carrier and repeat the process until the strap is 18 inches long.

Center the end of the handle over the opposite side of the lawn bowl carrier. Press the end of the handle into the center of the carrier so the end lines up with the top edge. Single crochet through the carrier layer and the handle layer.

Tie the last stitch off with a knot. Cut the yarn approximately 2 inches from the knot. Weave the cut end through the top row of stitching to hide.
