More Details
In this class you will start by learning how to make increases to create a flat-bottomed round. Then you will use a different stitch to build the sides of the basket. Finally, you can attach leather handles to your basket with rivets. Students will also learn how to source materials and adjust the pattern to make baskets in different sizes and shapes. You will leave the class with a finished crochet rope basket!
About Your Instructor, Cara Corey
I started my career as a features writer for newspapers and magazines, but eventually realized I wanted to invest my time in my lifelong passion for crafting. I have always been inspired by my crafty and thrifty grandmother, Mary Marie Mason, who taught me how important it was to take time out to make something with your hands. 
In my knitting and crochet classes, my goal is to build confidence in beginners by starting with chunky knit projects you can finish in one class. Once you’ve mastered that project, you can move on to smaller and smaller needles and yarn. I love the moments when it clicks for students.
