The Crochet Sushi Magnet is such a quick and fun pattern to do. And they have such endless uses you can come up with. If you add in a magnet, you can stick it on the fridge with notes attached. I like to use my sushi magnets to hang up my photos or postcards. If you don’t want to use magnets, you can just have them be play food items or decor. I even made one into a keychain. And they’d make great party favors, especially if they are Asian themed!
Alright so let’s get to it.

Crochet Sushi Magnet Video Tutorial
And finally for those visual learners out there, here’s a crochet tutorial video that takes you step by step through each Round in the pattern. It assumes you already know how to crochet! I plan on coming out with basic crochet video tutorials very soon, so I’ll keep you posted!
You want to be sure to get the extra strong magnets or it won’t be able to be powerful to stick through the yarn. If you get a weaker magnet, I’d recommend glueing it to the outside of of the sushi. A good strong glue to use is E-6000.
Let me know how yours turns out!
