Our workshop to make a beautiful Chunky Crocheted Basket has continued to be very popular. We have had an overwhelming response to the workshops being taught by Kate Keller (who made the baskets). We also stock the special cotton cord yarn ‘Bobbiny’ used to make them. We now have some confirmed dates for workshops in the new year.
Please note that you do need to know how to do the ‘double crochet’ stitch. (If looking this up on YouTube make sure you look at English ‘Double Crochet’ and not American.) We will also use a ‘Magic Loop’ to start with. We will show you how!
You will make the small version of the basket, as seen in the picture (so you can get it done in the time) with leather handles to finish it off and we will give you a pattern so that you can make any size you like once you have learnt the techniques in the workshop. Materials for the basket made in the workshop are included along with a crochet hook, handles and pattern, there will be a choice of colours.
If you can crochet and are desperate to have a go before then, we do sell the pattern, yarn, handles and hooks at Craft Days.
