Basketweave Crochet

basketweave crochet workshop

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.

What will we cover?

On this one-day workshop you’ll learn how to use the highly textured basketweave stitch to create your own gorgeous cushion. 


You will: 

  • be taken step by step through the stitch and pattern
  • understand the concept of ‘post’ crochet
  • look at variations of the basketweave stitch 
  • explore how to design your own pattern, allowing you to make a different size cushion cover.


How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work. 


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).

What will I take home with me?

You’ll leave with a cushion that’s well on its way to being finished and fabulous. 


Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.


During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.
