Only basic knitting is required and you'll learn how to increase and decrease if you don't already know how to. Don't worry, there are complete easy-to-read instructions and full-color photos. My patterns use few, if any, abbreviations. Stitch counts are given row-by-row. You'll also learn how to do a nifty twisted edge - it's easy! There are complete instructions on how to felt your knit item the easy way - in the washing machine and needle felting instructions for the tear drop embellishment shown. There are 2 versions given. They are both knitted the same way, the only difference is yarn choice and embellishment. The striped bowl uses up all those odd bits of yarn from other projects - just start and stop the stripes randomly - so easy! The embellished bowl uses 2 colors - a contrast color for the rim and a main color for the bowl. After felting, it's embellished with basic needle felting for a fun accent!
