Crocheted felted nesting bowls


So, I bought this cute pattern on Etsy for crocheted, felted nested bowls. I made bowl #1 (the smallest one) the other day in a nice red worsted weight wool yarn that I let my oldest pick out at AC Moore. Very cute and quick to make. Now, I need to make bowls 2, 3 and 4 and see how they nest.

And here it is after one run through the washing machine. I’m trying to decide if I should run it through a second time. I have a front loader HE machine and it’s not the best felting machine out there (to put it mildly).

(Inside the bowl are cute little wooden acorns from Caseys.)

It didn’t quite turn out as perfectly as it looks in the pattern, but that’s okay! I’m still a very new crocheter.

Speaking of crochet. Check out this totally cute and awesome Valentine’s Day crocheted heart garland on Skip to my Lou.

  1. I have a front loader and the first time I tried felting in it I was very disappointed. Then, I took a pair of Bug’s old boots that he wore when he was 2, cut off the velcro and any other thing that felt like it might catch on the yarn, and threw them in the next time I felted. Much better results!

    Can’t wait to see how they stack when you get the other bowls made. Do you know how large the biggest bowl is?

    Very cute!

  3. It looks great to me! I wonder if I could find a pattern for knitting. I cannot add to my skills right now or I will have more projects that anyone human being could finish! Oy!

  4. Very cute bowl!! I love it!!
