Crochet a Basket with Karen Lacey
Saturday 18 February – 11:00 – 13:30, £40 (includes day entry to the unravel festival, plus tea or coffee)
If you have mastered the basics of creating a chain and double crochet we will take these stitches and using chunky TShirt Yarn turn them in to a circle and then a basket.
Once you have mastered this shape you can make all manner of sizes and use them as vases (covering an empty pop bottle), storage baskets for the bathroom or kids toys and even a laundry basket. Time allowing we will then look at different stitches that can really transform your baskets to another level.
