I have looked allover the net...where ever did you find it!
I want to use it in my craft group! It is full of knitting grannies (nothing wrong with knotting I say) but I want to show them there is more out there for them!

Thank you for your interest in my map bowls. The only instructions that I have ever come across were in a Danish book that has been out of print for years. I learned making these bowls when I went to school in Denmark 30 years ago. I'll do a search and see if I can find a link with the technique. If not then I'll try to make some basic instructions in the near furture Happy
