Crocheted Hanging Accessory Baskets

Between the four of us, Winter is a time for scattered accessories. Rather than dig for hats, scarves, and mittens every time we go out, I prefer to have them all in one place. I made each of us a hanging basket that’s big enough to hold one of each necessary item (the extras are in a bin on the shelf above). They conveniently live under our coats.

The pattern is based on this one, Hanging Basket, but I had to make it larger.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Solids, two strands held together.

Such a good idea! I may need to copy you. :grin:

This is such a great idea. The window of opportunity to use accessories like that here is so small that they get lost, All The Time. lol
I may have to do something like this to resolve that problem. :smile:

What a clever idea. and I bet using 2 strands made it work up faster.

The pattern called for bulky yarn, so I substituted two strands of worsted/aran weight. It did work up quickly, though! I finished all four in about three days.

I really like this idea! :slight_smile:

Awesome idea! I should do a pair to live on our coat rack.

I love these. I have been planning to do some on a smaller scale - we have a small (van-sized) RV and we need someplace for little things like our glasses when we go to sleep at night. The mitten/scarf/etc. idea is brilliant as well - I may have to see about a spot for something like this!!

My kid could definitely use one of those! (although around here it might end up getting co-opted to nurse some baby stuffed animal back to health & disappear for a couple months. So, maybe several…)

This is brilliant. It is nice that they’re different colors so everyone can easily identify their own “yarny organizing pod”.

These are so clever! This seems like a pattern that could easily adapt for other sizes/uses too.

What a brilliant way to keep things corralled!
I love that everyone has their own designated hanging pod :slight_smile:
