I made this basket last night sitting in front of the tv. I think it's my favorite one yet. It's another chunky crochet basket. The color is perfect.
I used Lion Brand Thick and Quick in Oatmeal. It took every bit of 2 skeins with an N hook. The size is a larger (7 inches in height and 10 inches in diameter) since I used a larger hook. This particular color of yarn seems to be thicker than other colors of the same brand.
I think I'll make 2 or 3 more just like this for the craft fair.
Beautiful work. Can't wait to try your pattern. Linda @ Wetcreek BlogReplyDelete
Love your basket, I need to try one.ReplyDelete
Love this ... How big is it ? What ply wool did you use and how many grams in a skein. Sorry for the technical questions but here in Europe things are a little different. I would love to have a go at making this basket, it looks wonderful. Thank you for sharing this pattern with us all.ReplyDelete
It is 7 inches in height (9 inches in height including handles)
10 inches in diameter
the yarn is super bulky
170 grams/ 106 yards per skein
Preciosa! Sí, repítela porque el color es muy, muy bonito.ReplyDelete
Saludos y buen día.

ooh! i love this one so much! i made one in green using your tutorial which i love, but i think this latest of yours is my fave! just curious-how much are you selling these for at your craft fair?ReplyDelete
Really cute basket!ReplyDelete
I do this same basket without the handles, usually with two strands; a neutral and a bright, to add contrast. I have even done it with some bulky decorative yarns - I don't put as many rows in them, and have always called them bird's nests. They take about half an hour, and I keep them on hand to give as gifts/sell at craft fairs. I will have to add the handles; it totally changes the look of the basket.ReplyDelete
