Crocheted Sushi Roll Tutorial

March 04, 2011

I wanted to keep this project super simple, so I came up with a basic beginner tutorial for a crocheted sushi roll.

The only stitch you will need to know is the single crochet, which is the most basic crochet stitch. There are many places to learn how to single crochet, but I learned by watching the knit witch on YouTube. Lion Brand Yarn has helpful crochet lessons as well.

Here are the materials you will need :
US G-6 (4.0 mm) crochet hook
black, white, and red yarn
black embroidery thread
embroidery needle

Abbreviations: ch = chain; sc = single crochet; st = stitch

Using black yarn, ch 11.

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (sc 10).

Row 2-22: ch.1, sc in each st.
Fasten off

Using white yarn, ch 11.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (sc 10).
Row 2-20: ch 1, sc in each st.
Fasten off

Using red yarn, ch. 11.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (sc 10).
Row 2-5: ch 1, sc in each st.
Fasten off

Roll red crocheted piece into a tube.

Roll white crocheted piece around red piece.

Roll black crocheted piece around white piece.
Using embroidery thread, sew black piece together.

Now you have your very own crocheted sushi roll!

Enjoy and happy Friday!!!
