It’s not uncommon for someone to come into the shop, pick up a one of these pretty little Woolstok Bundles and say, “What do you make with this?”. 

How about felted bowls! The Fairmont Felted Bowls by Blue Sky Fibers is a free pattern. And you will get two bowls out of just one bundle. Use your favorite colorway (Cool, Warm, or Neutral) and end up with the cutest felted bowls ever! 

These bowls are perfect for knitting notions, candy, car keys – you name it these little bowls will jazz up your home and make you smile whenever you see them. Super fun and easy to knit.

The bowls will felt beautifully. Throw them into the wash, then into the dryer for a few minutes. I think I dried them on medium heat for about 10 minutes. When you take them out of the dryer place a can or jar in them and shape the bowl around it and turn it upside down. Let the bowls dry over night. I washed mine twice but I think a third time would give you a firmer bowl.

This is what the bowls look like before felting. Small little hats that will blow right off your head in the slightest breeze.

This pattern is great for a beginner. A nice alternative to learning to knit in the round if making a hat this time of year doesn’t to appeal to you. We are happy to help you get started!
