The base of the bowl measures 16cm across, and is 6cm deep (although felting is pretty unpredictable!)
This was made with a:
100g skein of Colinette Point 5 Chunky Pure Wool in colourway “Turquiose 21” and a
50g ball of Classic Adriafil “Ibiza” 100% Cotton.
1 pair of UK size 7 1/2 straight needles.
Tapestry needle for seam.
Cast on 70 sts with the Colinette,
Join Adriafil and St St (stocking stitch/stockinette) 2 rows,
St St 4 rows in Colinette,
Repeat these 6 rows once more.
Keeping this stripe repeat, *K7, K2tog, rep from * to last 7 sts, K6, K2tog. (62sts)
Next row and all alt rows: Purl
Next: *K6, K2tog, rep from * to last 6 sts, K4, K2tog. (54 sts)

Next: *K2 tog, rep from * to last st, K1. (8 sts)
Break yarn and thread through the remaining sts and pull tight.
Sew seam and place item in washing machine (I put it on 60 degrees) with another item of clothing for agitation.
When finished, block over a bowl to obtain a good shape.
