This is made from hexagons and pentagons knitted separately as medallions. They are sewn together and miraculously form a rounded bowl shape before felting. You can make it in one color, or emphasize the patchwork by making it multi-colored. When felted it turns into a rounded basket shape.
It’s a great project to have on the go and pick up at odd moments as the individual pieces are small.
