Online Workshop 9/12 : Hand Crochet a Rope Basket

5 items left

This online workshop takes place on Sunday, September 12th, from 11 AM - 1 PM PDT via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions before the workshop. 

Learn how to create your own storage basket with soft cotton rope and optional leather handles. No crochet experience is required, as you will learn to make the stitches with your hands rather than a crochet hook. First, you will learn to attach the rope to the handmade wood bottom and then build the basket's sides with a different stitch. Finish with a basket approximately 10 inches wide and 8 inches tall.

You'll have a complete basket by the end of class!
