Felted Bowl

"Felted Bowls" pattern from One Skien
Two strands of Paton's Classic Merino on size 9, 16" circs
shell button embellishments
5" tall by 5" diameter


This was a fast, enjoyable project. I've been wanting to make a felted bowl for a while, and this was the main reason why I bought One Skein. I am pleased with the final result and love the buttons. (Yarnstorm has started a small button obsession in me.) However, the shape of the bowl is more like a vase than a bowl. In the book, the examples look more like bowls. I tried shaping it wet, but it really didn't want to be that shape. Also, as much as I liked making it and want to make more, what does one do with a felted bowl?
