KIK Meeting – Baskets & Bowls

*NOTE: There is a change in date this month!!

Learn how to knit different sizes and styles of baskets and bowls depending on your choice of yarn.

Andrea Conrad will share her knowledge and experience using several patterns which she will bring to the meeting. Some are simple and some are more complicated; all are knit in the round.

 

Homework:
Bring some yarn of worsted or super bulky weight and appropriate size double point or circular needles. Any sturdy yarn can be used, but if you want a felted basket then you’ll need to use 100% wool yarn. This is a good project for scrap yarn, and you can knit with multiple strands of yarn; just be sure to use larger needles.
