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! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Fair isle (optional) Felting GAUGE 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

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other! I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
