Twice-felted Goldilocks Bowls

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Felting

Pattern Description:

?Goldilocks wouldn't have been wandering aimlessly around the forest invading the homes of hapless bears if she'd had a nice, productive hobby like knitting! This set of three nesting bowls uses only one skein of yarn and makes the perfect holiday decoration or quick gift. Felt them first in the washer and again by embellishing with needle felting. Whatever the occasion, they'll be juuuuuust right...


14 stitches and 20 rows in stockinette over 4 inches. Fabric will seem quite loose to allow for shrinking during felting.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Bowls will vary significantly after felting, but very approximate sizes are: Large: 6" wide by 5" tall before felting. 5.5" wide by 3" tall after felting. Medium: 4.5" wide by 4.75" high before felting. 4" wide by 2.75" tall after felting. Small: 3" wide by 4.5" high before felting. 2.5" wide by 2.5" tall after felting


  • US 10.5 (6.5 mm) needles for knitting in the round (set of double-pointed, two circulars, or one longer circular for magic loop method), or size needed to obtain gauge.

  • Tapestry needle
  • Garment bag (for felting)
  • Optional: Roving and Needle felting needle

160 yards of Worsted weight
