Felted Bowl

Awhile ago I finished knitting up my Christmas stocking and had a few yards of wool yarn left. Not enough to make something, but too much just to toss. I found this pattern on raverly and thought I'd give felting a try.

I knit it up in a jiffy and it's been sitting in my basket since summer time. One day when Stomper was away with Mimi I thought I'd give it a try. I filled a bowl with hot tap water and soap. I put on a pair of rubber gloves and got to work. It felted quite a bit so I put it over a bowl on the pellet stove and let it dry. When it was dry I realized that it didn't felt enough and I'd have to do it some more.

I searched the web for more tutorials and found this video.

I felted it again with hotter water for a longer period of time. My final result was a firm fabric and a sweet little bowl. I am quite pleased with it!


  1. I have yet to try felting anything. I don't want to break my washer so I'd probably have to do it in the bathtub in the back bathroom (the bathroom we hardly ever use). Perhaps I'll give it a go someday...

  2. I did mine in the kitchen sink, but it was small.
