These fun little bowls are perfect for practicing circular knitting. If you make one in each size, they nest neatly together. Use them to hold keys, change, keepsakes, or small knitting supplies. As a bonus: the construction of these bowls is exactly the same as making a hat, so you’re practicing for making hats here, too—just in miniature.

Finished Measurements
About 2 1⁄2 (3, 3 1⁄2) inches (6.5, 7.5, 9cm) diameter, 1 1⁄2 inches (4cm) high. Finished size depends on gauge and amount of felting.

35 (45, 55) yards (32, 41, 50m) worsted weight wool, held double, or half that amount in bulky wool. Use feltable 100 percent animal fiber. Do not use anything labeled “superwash.”
