If you'd like to try making a cotton rope basket yourself, this kit will give you all the materials needed to create one. This is the same kit I use for my in-person classes, but with extra rope so you can create a bigger basket. It contains 100 yards of 1/2-inch-thick cotton piping cord (enough to make an approximately 13x12-inch basket), a set of size 35 knitting needles and instructions for how to knit and assemble the basket.
Difficulty: Easy. This kit contains detailed instructions (with photos) on how to knit, suitable for people who have never knit before or need a refresher. I also include a link to watch my Skillshare video on this class for free.
A note on gauge: Everyone knits with a different tension, so some people's baskets may turn out slightly larger or smaller than the sample.
Care: Spot clean or hand wash and air dry. If you put this rope in a washing machine, the little strings that hold it together will break. It can be dyed, and there are instructions in the pattern for how to do that. There are also instructions for creating baskets of different sizes.
