Does your yarn keep rolling away when you’re knitting or crocheting?
A yarn bowl is just the thing to fix that problem!
I’ve been wanting a yarn bowl ever since I saw some at a local craft fair. The handmade ones that the potter was selling were beautiful but at $30 to $50 each, were out of the budget at the time.
Back in this post, I showed you a wooden bowl that I’d picked up at one of the local thrift stores.
In this simple step-by-step how-to we demonstrate how my husband, Dave turned it into a yarn bowl for me and how you can make one for yourself.
Wooden bowl 6″ to 7″ in diameter – this beautiful 6″ Acacia wood bowl (<affiliate link)is the perfect size if you can’t find one at your local thrift store

First, he drew the shape on the side of the bowl that I showed him from some photos of yarn bowls I found on-line.
Then he used the lines as a guide to drill several small holes with his cordless dremel tool.
