Small Yarn Bowl

from MollyConroy Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Small Yarn Bowl
Small Yarn Bowl
Small Yarn Bowl
Small Yarn Bowl
Small Yarn Bowl
Small Yarn Bowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, pick up stitches, increase stitches, decrease stitches, knit in the round

Pattern Description:

I am a partner in a yarn store in Southern California -- Hands on Knitting Center in Rendlans -- and we were struggling to find a source for ceramic yarn bowls. On a long drive from Colorado I came up with the idea of a felted yarn bowl (really quite obvious) and designed it on the trip.

The bowls are really fun to make and very easy. You do need some basic skills. After the first bowl you should be able to crank theses out in 2 to 3 hours. They are fabulous gifts for other knitters or crocheters. The small bowl will hold most skeins of yarn. If you knit large projects you might want to check out the large bowl pattern.

I do include good felting instructions.


3 sts and 4.5 rows equals 1 inch, stockinette st in the round.


  • Approximately 220 yards of worsted weight wool yarn (it CANNOT be superwash) or 110 yards of chunky weight wool yarn, size US 11 circular needles, 16"

You Will Also Need:

  • 4 stitch markers, either two button (between 1" and 2") OR one clasp.
