The yarn bowl craft is the answer to knitting's persistent tangling problem. It is so frustrating trying to untangle your yarn especially if you are already in the middle of a project. Remember how annoyed you get when your ball of yarn roll away from you and manages to collect lint and hair? You may think you are doing just fine now but wait until you experience using a yarn bowl craft. This will totally change your perspective. You just might thank me later!

This unique tool has many uses for your hobby. It makes knitting more efficient. You encounter fewer challenges so you can actually enjoy doing what you love.

Once you experience using a yarn bowl craft, I assure you'd want to make it a staple in your working area. One benefit of the yarn bowl is that it keeps the yarn ball from rolling away from you. It keeps the yarn clean. You do not need to worry about it getting dirty or picking up random hair or lint.

Yarn bowls can be bought from your craft store or from artisans. However, you can also make your own. Here are some examples of yarn bowls or dispensers you can DIY:


1. Plastic Container

2. Knitted Yarn Bowl from Plastic Store Bag

To create a knitted yarn bowl, you would need to make yarns out of plastic store bags first. You will use this together with some paracord in this step-by-step tutorial.


3. Bamboo Bowl
