I am thrilled to present to you another amazing knitting tutorial from Evelyne of Nemcsok Farms. Evelyne teaches here how to make a brilliant set of knit stacking bowls to catch you knick-knacks.
(Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.)
Whip yourself up some fab little stacking bowls for accessories and / or pocket change with this fun tutorial for knit stacking bowls, with an I-cord.
Use your favourite acrylic yarn, in your favourite colors. I specify acrylic yarn because you are likely going to want to wash and dry these at some point, and acrylic yarn is more affordable than real wool, and holds up way better in the laundry. This is an excellent stash buster project, and is going to tidy up your trinket space and make awesome gifts for your friends!
You’ll need to know how to make an I-cord (You can find some really great instructions in our I-Cord Pencil Case tutorial) and the rest is super easy.
Knitted I-Cord Stacking Bowls
- 4 strands of I-Cord made using your favorite colors of yarn, 32″, 44″, 56″ and 68″. You can see how to knit an I-Cord here.
- Yarn and Darning Needle for Sewing
1. Take the shortest I-Cord, and start a building a spiral around the end.
Sew the spiral in place, wrapping a new section and sewing along as you go, securing it into a disc.
2. Continue working the spiral until it measures 2.5″ across the base.
After your base is complete, you will start building up, instead of out. Place your next part of the spiral on top of the outside edge of your base, and stitch together.
Continue to build your bowl up from the base, in a spiral, stitching secure.
3. Secure the end of your I-cord to the bowl, and weave in any strands.
4. Repeat steps 1 – 6 with each remaining I-cords, building each base one strand wider than the previous. This will allow the bowls to stack nicely within each other.
