The yarn bowl was not on my list of pots to make but after numerous requests I have designed a bowl that I am pleased with and my customers and vendors like.
The idea of the yarn bowl is to hold the ball of yarn while you are knitting. The bowl keeps the yarn in one place, not all over the floor. The old way was to use a small basket but often the yarn would catch in the basket weave. My design has gone thru several changes, most recommended by customers and vendors. My current Yarn Bowl has the " J" cut in the fount of the bowl with a single hole in the back. The frount "J" cut allows the knitter to remove the yarn from the bowl without breaking. The hole in the back is for those who knit at home and never take their knitting with them. I have added two more small holes in the side rim of the bowl, these are to hold the knitting needles. I am currently working on a larger version that will hold a skein of yarn, I have not perfected it yet but am close.
