Yarn consumption


dc - Double crochet

sl st - Slip stitch

inc - Increase (2 stitches in the same stitch)

bl – Back loop

dsp – Deep spike stitch

A spike stitch is a stitch, which is crocheted through the stitches of one of the previous rows. To make a deep spike stitch, you go down two rows instead of one.



Start by making 6 dc in a magic ring (6).

• inc x 6 (12)

• 1, inc x 6 (18)

• 2, inc x 6 (24)

• 3, inc x 6 (30)

Now, the bottom of the pencil holder is finished, and you can begin making the edges. Proceed by making a round of dc in the back loop (30).

Hereafter, you make 2 rounds of dc (30).

Once you have made the 2 rounds of dc, you begin the spiral pattern. You do this by making:

• 2 dc, 1 dsp x 10 + 1 dc (31)

Use the last dc to make a colour change. With each new colour you make two rounds:

• 1st round: dc (30)

• 2nd round: 2 dc, 1 dsp x 10 + 1 dc (31)
