Crochet Sushi Magnet pattern and video tutorial


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!

    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!

    Extra notes:
    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!

      Hello AmiAmour,
      I’m relatively new to crotcheting and I’m trying this sushi pattern out, and I have a query in regards to the number of stitches per round when the colour change occurs. When I finished my first round (6 sc) then did the colour change (insert hook, yarn over, pull through, finish sc with new colour) I got 7 sc in the round. I also watched the video tutorial and it seems that you did the same as I did, except you got 6 sc in a round rather than 7 sc. Is there something I missed?

      Thank you!

        Try doing the color change on the last stitch of the first round. And then make sure you’re doing your sc increase for Round 2 in the next stitch and not in the same stitch as before. And also it’s ok, if you still have 7 sc. Just skip over one stitch. It shouldn’t make too big of a difference. Hope that can help!
