Goldilocks wouldn’t have been wandering aimlessly around the forest invading the homes of hapless bears if she’d had a nice, productive hobby like knitting! This set of three nesting bowls uses only one skein of yarn and makes the perfect holiday decoration or quick gift. Felt them first in the washer and again by embellishing with needle felting. Whatever the occasion, they’ll be juuuuuust right…

Approximately 160 yards worsted weight wool yarn (NOT superwash!) makes all three bowls. Pictured in Brown Sheep Company Lanaloft Worsted. We also recommend Malabrigo Worsted.
14 stitches and 20 rows in stockinette over 4 inches. Fabric will seem quite loose to allow for shrinking during felting.
This enthusiastic beginner pattern is worked in the round from the rim down.
Bowls will vary significantly after felting, but very approximate sizes are:
Large: 6” wide by 5” tall before felting. 5.5” wide by 3” tall after felting.
Medium: 4.5” wide by 4.75” high before felting. 4” wide by 2.75” tall after felting.
Small: 3” wide by 4.5” high before felting. 2.5” wide by 2.5” tall after felting.
