Make a Yarn Bowl with a Recycled Coffee Can

I made an inexpensive and practical yarn bowl with a recycled 11.3 oz Folger’s plastic coffee can and a quick knitted cozy.  It is the perfect size for holding an average cake of yarn. You can also punch a hole in the lid to feed yarn through, or leave the lid whole and close to carry.

Here is how you can make one for yourself, or a knitting/crocheting friend:

To begin, remove the can label and run it through the dishwasher to clean.

To knit the cozy I used a 12" circular needle size 7, and some scrap yarn in a sport weight.

Cast on 75 stitches.

Knit 1, purl 1 rib for 1"

Knit the next 1"

Repeat these two sections once more, or to fit height of can.

Happy Knitting♥
