I decided to use the little bit of black and speckled black bulky yarn I had left. I quickly jumped on the crochet basket bandwagon and figured this yarn would make make a nice yarnspiration stash basket.. The pattern is shows a rectangular basket, but as I was working with my yarn, I realized I did not have enough of any of my 3 types of bulky yarn to make it that way. So, I based my basket on this pattern, but instead of continuing each side as I work around the corners, I did each side separately (this ended up being important because I realized I didn’t have enough yarn to go the suggested 5" width) and used a smaller pretty turqouise-ish yarn with the large hook for the fold-over part. I love how that looks! I also used the turquoise yarn to sew the sides together and to sew the bottom on. I really like this basket a lot! I wish I had a craft room to put it! (I may give it to my niece as a graduation gift – I need to know if she likes blue!) or I may just hang onto it for myself.
The basket measures 8" high wide and 4" high. The sides are two different yarns and so they alternate A-B-A-B.
Thanks for looking!
