Felted Bowl

This is a VERY simple project.  It is great for beginners and as a break during a long or hard project.  Perfect for all those nick-nacks that seem to magically appear!

US 7
Gauge: 5.71 SPI 
2 skeins

Bottom: CO:55
Side: CO:45

Finished size: 
Bottom: 7"
Sides: 6" high x 24" long

Both pieces are Stockinette stitch.  On the bottom and sides knit unit around 9 or 10 inches, or desired size.  If you want a different size, just remember that when you felt and item that it will decrease by 20%. 
Sew sides together and the bottom piece to side and then felt. 

To shape: To get square shape of bowl to stay I took a small bathroom trash can and placed the bowl over the bottom and allowed it to dry.
