Tri-colour felted bowl

This rustic, multi-purpose bowl crocheted and felted in three colours of bulky-weight Álafoss Lopi wool is the perfect size for holding small bits and bobs. 


The bowl is worked in the round and felted in the washing machine to create a stronge, dense fabric. Because this pattern uses small amounts of yarn, it's a great project for using up leftover yarn.
