Basket Weave Pillow Crochet Class

Class Description

Have a pillow party and decorate your house with these basket weave pillows. You’ll learn how to crochet in the basket weave pattern so you can use it again and again.

We think that crochet makes the world a better place and that pillows do too, so we want to fill the world with pillows. So that’s what we’re teaching you to do. Learn the ins and outs of the basketweave stitch, and how to crochet your pillow from start to finish. You’ll get the know-how on everything from basic crochet techniques like single stitch and double stitch, and the more in-depth tricks of the trade that Annette Corsino-Blair will share with you. Finish it all off, and you’ve got an adorable new pillow to add to any couch, chair, or bed in your house. There’s nothing like a poofy pillow to add cheer to a room, and we think it’s extra cheerful that you made it on your own. Well, with a little help from our class, that is.
