How to Pick the Perfect Yarn Bowl


Are you getting tired of chasing your yarn balls from rolling off the ground? And when they do, they just can’t keep themselves away from pet furs and dust. Not to mention how much time you lose just from untangling the knots. Well, it will never be this frustrating at all when a yarn bowl is in the house. All you have to do, is rest your yarn balls on it and you’ll be enjoying your crochet time with no interruptions from falling yarn balls or from the playful pets around. It can keep your yarn clean and straight while saving a bunch of hours from untangling all the knots. Isn’t that awesome?

Here are some tips that you can check out so you can pick that perfect yarn bowl to make your crochet hours a lot more fun!

1. Choose the perfect size for your yarn balls

Consider your yarn weight. What yarn weights do you usually work with the most? Are you into chunky or DK yarn weights? Then you better go for extra-large bowls. Or a large bowl may do but don’t go smaller than 8″x4″. We recommend this Premium Rosewood Yarn Bowl Set 8”x4” with 2 Crochet Hooks not just with its gorgeous design but with its functionality as well.


This crochet yarn bowl will help you from all the twisting and the mess. Not just that, this large Rosewood Yarn Bowl measures 8 inches by 4 inches to fit multiple yarn balls!

This craft is perfectly designed for crochet lovers. It’s handcrafted from PREMIUM-QUALITY SHEESHAM WOOD with SMOOTH cut out on the side of the bowl with no rough edges for the yarn to snag on! The sheesham wood is heavy enough to ensure your bowl doesn’t move around.

But what if you just mostly use fingering yarn weight? Well, any sized yarn bowl will do. Click here for our recommendations.



2. Pick your preference

Do you want to go for wood or ceramic? Both of these yarn bowls are wonderful and great. They both look stylish and classy but if you’re afraid that your bowls might fall and break, then a wooden yarn bowl will be totally fantastic. Besides, we can’t always keep our eyes stuck on our playful pets or kids. Or we would want any broken pieces that might hurt us at all. With a wooden yarn bowl to keep our yarn balls in place, we can always keep our eyes and minds off from frisky children and pets.

3. Think if you want to bring your yarn bowl anywhere

Do you want to go on your dream vacation or just want to relax on a park? Or maybe you’re just waiting for a friend in a coffee shop or just want to stitch out while on a ride?  Who can’t keep ourselves away from crocheting? Of course, we’d always love to bring our craft anywhere. So when we pack our things, we always make sure our yarn and hooks are also there. But wait, how about our yarn holder?

4. Get the one that will not tip over easily

Of course, a yarn bowl mustn’t knock over that easy. We don’t want to get upset, are we? A bowl that always moves around will definitely disrupt on our crochet hype at the moment. Pick a bowl that’s sturdy and heavy enough to keep it from tipping over when you pull on the yarn. A holder that has a wider base could help.

5. Go for the very smooth ones

Our yarn is everything. A little damage can cause a lot of distress. So pick a yarn bowl that has a smooth cut-out or those that have very smooth surfaces. A bit of roughness from the yarn holder can totally fray yarn.  We don’t want our yarn to snag, don’t we?
