Working from the inside of the bowl with color A, sl st around through both bowls, in the 15th round (about 3 rounds from the top)
Working from the outside of the bowl with color B, sew in and out of the stitches to form the word YARN or whatever creative word/decoration you would like. When sewing in and out you’ll have spaces and your lines will look like dotted lines, leave them that way until you get to the end of the word. You will then trace back over your letters, sewing in and out in the opposite stitches to fill in the spaces that made your lines “dotted” to form relatively straight lines.
Cut a 12” piece of raffi. loop the strand around a stitch where you’d like to place the bow and tie into a knot. Carefully unfold the raffi and flatten out any wrinkles with your fingers. Tie into a bow, cut ends evenly.
