Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round

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!
