Online Workshop 6/13: Knit A Market Tote

This online workshop takes place on Sunday, June 13th from 11 AM to 1 PM PDT via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions before the workshop. 

Join knitting and crochet designer Cara Corey to learn how to make your own lightweight tote, perfect for the beach this summer.

In this beginner-friendly knitting class, you will learn to make a basic knit stitch using large circular knitting needles. Then you will seam the bottom of your bag and add homemade braided handles. The finished bag is approximately 12x15 inches. 

This stitch actually creates a reversible pattern, so you can wear your bag two ways. And by using the large needles, you will get an airy weave that makes the perfect summer bag for markets or the beach. Once you know how to make the bag, you can adapt the pattern to different sizes and shapes. 

Choose from two booking options:

1. Supply Your Own Materials - For this class, you will need about 200 feet of 3/16" single-ply cotton rope (clothesline rope works great!), and a set of large knitting needles (see size below)

2. Purchase a kit from us that includes:

  • 200 feet of 3/16" cotton rope
  • A set of size 50/25 mm circular knitting needles
  • Printed instructions

Everyone will also need a pair of scissors!
