"This crocheted casserole carrier is the perfect handmade gift to bring to a BBQ, housewarming, or just for show. You can fit a 10 inch plate or 8 inch round dish to transport your goodies to your next event. Skill Level: Beginner The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms. Casserole Carrier is crocheted in worsted weight cotton yarn. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track as needed. Measurement and gauge mentioned below.
