An easy knit project with plain knit stitch so good for beginners also but slightly trickier with a physical gathering of the basket base. It takes 50 meters of a lovely jute 3 strand rope which is pliable and natural to give an organic, soft feel basket.
Learn the joining and gathering techniques to form this basket. The techniques we show you are all you will need to progress to more baskets of your own designs with many different fibres after the workshop. Finish with a piece of leather which you can also hand stamp to personalise if you wish.
The finished size is approx. 10cm high x 35cm diameter. This workshop will last approx. 3 hours depending on your skill level.
