The perfect gift for the knitter or crocheter in your life (or for you!). This bowl holds the yarn in place and the "swirl hook" allows it to thread smoothly keeping everything clean and tidy. Your yarn will stay in place and have great tension as you crochet or knit.
I threw this bowl/basket on the potters wheel. The yarn "swirl hook" is hand carved and the handle is natural braided fiber.
The bowl has two holes in the back to put long needles if you need to store them and don't want them to fall out (see photo #2). People often ask if you can thread the yarn through the holes in the back. Yes, you can. But, if you need to remove the yarn in the middle of a project, you will need to cut the yarn. On the other hand, the "hook" in the front can be re-threaded without cutting the yarn.
Knitting and crochet yarn management made easy!
Size: approx. 5.5 wide and 6 inches tall (without handle) Holds: a lot of yarn - 100g ball easily Color: White
TIP: For easiest yarn pulling, ball your yarn before putting it in the bowl so that it spins easily. The skein in the photos has not be balled so it is not the best example.
The piece is finished with a non-toxic glaze and fired to over 2300 degrees Fahrenheit.
