I could absolutely use a yarn bowl. I have yarn on shelves, yarn in bags on the floor, and yarn stacked in boxes in my office. Actually, most of the time, I dont even know what kind or colors of yarn I have and wind up repeat buying them again. This is a very cute idea. Bet my cat will enjoy it too.

Very nice pattern! I really like the way this artist made it so versatile on size, shape and color! It has a very earthy feel to it. I also like the way it could potentially use up quite a bit of my leftover yarns. Great to see it in several different sizes and colors too!

My craft studio is fairly tidy but there is always a need for more baskets or bowls to hold this or that. This pattern uses 3 strands and is such a good way to use up odd bits and pieces of left over yarns hd, boy, do I have a lot of those! The shape of the bowl is also really nice and I think I will add a couple of handles but will decide when the bowl is almost done.

Love this stash buster, however, I have learned through trial and error that you need to use a substantial yarn for the basket. The soft ones just turn out limp and saggy. This pattern is very adjustable to whatever size you need and the reverse single crochet makes a perfect edge for the top.

Wow! This might be one of the the best patterns I have come across, ever. EVERYBODY needs a large bowl for stuff. And the look of the scraps gives it such a handmade look, like it came right from a pioneer woman in her log cabin. It looks like it has a history. A story. But the truth is, it is such a simple idea that I wish I HAD thought of! I have so much yarn at home and it's all random weights and random colors. I think I found my project. She gives great directions on how to change the diameter and the height, too.
