Scrappy Nesting Bowls
"Use up some scraps and get organized at the same time! Crochet nesting bowls are a fun way to store small things like keys, change, buttons, or even stitch markers. With 5 bowls in the set, there’s a perfect size for all of it. The confetti like appearance of these nesting bowls is created by using 3 strands of yarn together at a time. Three strands of worsted yarn together make the equivalent of a super-thick, jumbo yarn. Using this thick yarn bundle at a tight gauge gives the sides of the bowls the strength to stand up straight. "
