During the course of this one day workshop you will learn how to create the basketweave stitch and create your own gorgeous cushion, see the picture below. The basketweave stitch is a highly textured stitch and is very dense making it great for cushions, baskets and even rugs around the home.
A brilliant technique to add to your crochet repertoire.
This workshop is led by Eleonora.

You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.
Do I need any previous experience or skills?
Yes, you do need basic crochet skills to join this course.
Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?
Please bring along your own hook and choice of yarn. After all, everyone has different tastes in colour and we want this to fit right in when it gets home.
You’ll need 3 x 100g balls of an Aran yarn (also known as worsted weight yarn).
