The Most Awesome Gift For A Knitting Cat Lover Is A Cat Yarn Bowl

What Do You Get A Knitter Who Is A Cat Lover?

A cat yarn bowl is the perfect solution. This is an easy question for me, being both a cat owner and a knitter. It is also something that a non knitter would probably not know existed.

The solution is – A Yarn Bowl! A what?

What Is A Yarn Bowl?

This is a yarn bowl. A cat yarn bowl is a yarn bowl with a cat being an added decorative feature.

The yarn feeds through a slot, therefore eliminating tangles plus the cat, (the real one) cannot create merry havoc by chasing the ball of yarn around the room.

As a knitter I have several WIPs (Works In Progress) and I know some people, not naming names, who like to have a bowl for each project because it keeps everything together and nice and tidy.

It is also really handy to just pick up the bowl with whatever project you are working on and take it with you, wherever you may be going.

Tip – If using the yarn bowl on a slippery surface use a disc of non slip liner underneath the yarn bowl.

Ceramic Yarn Bowls

Ceramic or pottery yarn bowls are possibly going to be heavier than other yarn bowls.

This is actually okay, as it means that these bowls will have stability and won’t move about when the yarn is being used and drawn through the slot.

As each piece made by Judith is handmade the weight will vary. This bowl has a flat bottom that spans 5 inches which gives it stability when pulling the yarn through the slot. Knitters are constantly pulling the yarn whilst knitting, so this is an important design factor. It won’t slide around and is not top heavy.


Cat Ceramic Yarn Bowl

This yarn bowl measures 5″ x 4.5″ which holds a good sized ball of yarn. The bowl is hand painted. It is a reasonably heavy weight so the bowl won’t jump about, as the yarn is pulled through the hole, while knitting.

It looks super cute sitting on full view and is a talking point. Even when not in active duty it looks good. It looks good amongst the plants on the plant shelf and some people have actually used it as a plant holder.

One perhaps drawback for me is that you need to remember to thread the yarn through the hole before beginning the knitting project. This is pretty obvious but it is easy to forget also.

It’s a happy way to start knitting for the day.


Cat Yarn Bowl, I Love Cats and Yarn, Lennymud by Lorrie Veasey

This yarn bowl measures 6.5″ and 3.5″  This bowl is slightly different to the style shown above. Instead of having a hole to thread the yarn through, this bowl features a hook or slot. This means that the yarn can be removed without having to cut the yarn.

I prefer this style as I have the option of removing the yarn without having to cut the yarn. Both work well. It is matter of personal preference.

One Wooden Cat Yarn Bowl

It is important that the finish is smooth so that the wood does not snag the wool.

Certainly rough edges can be sanded, however as a new purchase this is not desirable, particularly if giving as a gift.

This cat yarn bowl is made from Mango Wood. It is 7 X 7 X 3 inches. This design has great functionality because it has two holes at the front plus a spiral cut out at the back. This takes care of which design is preferred. It also has a wide base which will help to keep the bowl in place.

Note: As this product is wooden it may or may not need some sanding. When using yarn, it is essential that there are no rough edges.
