diy wednesdays (part 1): felted nesting bowls

bowls1.jpg
before we get to our regular weekly post, we just wanted to share this awesome set of felted nesting bowls that lauren’s younger sister jessie made for us. the pattern for the medium-sized bowl came from a book called “oneskein” by leigh radford. jessie adapted the pattern to create the small and large versions, so the three bowls fit together perfectly. this is a great project for knitters of all level (especially those who are sick and tired of making scarves and hats!) putting what basically looks like a gigantic ski cap into a hot washing machine and pulling out a felted bowl is like magic! click here for more info and photos or just click “read more” below.

have fun!

ps- we’ve got knitting on the brain! stay tuned for another project at 1pm!

Felted Nesting Bowls

to make the small bowl, cast 36 stitches onto size 15 circular needles and knit even until it measures 3.5”. for the large bowl cast on 54 stitches and knit even until it measures 8″. all other steps, plus directions for felting, can be found in oneskein.
