About This Class

Who says you have to knit with yarn? In this class you will learn from Cara Corey (wielder of giant knitting needles at Mary Marie Knits) how to knit big loops of cotton rope on huge needles. With a simple garter stitch, you can create a knit piece in about an hour and assemble it into a sturdy basket. The basket can be used to store your favorite craft supplies, books, magazines, toys and more. 


You do not need to know how to knit, but if you already know how to knit a basic garter stitch, that will help.

Hi, I'm Cara and I'm a former journalist-turned-pattern designer. I specialize in modern knitting designs using giant needles and unique materials (see my work at I make everything from hats and scarves to pillows, poufs, and other home decor. I absolutely love knitting and crochet, and I couldn't put my needles down if I tried. 

I have a toddler and a baby, so my plate is very full right now, but I believe you always have to make time for creativity.
