Cats and other pets love to be cozy - treat your favorite pet to this easy-to-make knitted felt bowl. 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! This bowl also makes a great storage container for your yarn stash!

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family. Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed! Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years. My other favorites are marbling, bookbinding, calligraphy and beading. It's especially fun to try and combine all of my favorites into one design! I can add sewing to the favorites list again after taking the "Couture Dress" class on Craftsy - I hadn't sewn for myself in a long time because fitting and the way patterns are done frustrated me to no end - the class gave me a whole new way to approach sewing and I'm enjoying it again.
