In this 2 hour workshop you will learn how to knit a basket with giant yarn! Britt from Love Fest Fibers joins us from San Francisco to make baskets using a single ball of Tough Love yarn. Tough Love is 100% New Zealand wool that has been hand-felted into yarn by women in Nepal. Through this workshop, you'll learn how to knit and seam your basket, techniques for working with super chunky yarn and lots of projects ideas. By the end of the class you'll have your own basket to keep or share as a unique gift.

The fee includes: 1 big ball of felt yarn, size US50/25mm giant knitting needles + project pattern
