Pandora's Box

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Fair isle (optional)
  • Felting

Pattern Description:

When Pandora opened her box, all of the evils of the world flew out, leaving hope behind to comfort her. These bowls are inspired by ancient Greek lidded vessels, use Peruvian yarn manufactured in the US, and a pattern published by an Australian magazine. If the international nature of knitting doesn't bring you hope, maybe you'll find something to put in these bowls that will!


17 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch (in the round)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 20cm base diameter by 12.5cm tall (8in by 5in) before felting; 17cm by 10cm (6.5in by 4in) after felting.


  • 120 - 200 yards (110 - 183 m) worsted weight feltable wool yarn
  • US10 (6mm) knitting needles, both 20" circulars and double-pointed
