This basket would be perfect for Easter or as general home decor with or without the handle. Post stitches used in the basketweave stitch give this basket loads of texture and the look of a wicker basket.
worsted weight yarn (#4) - a stiff acrylic works really well
250 yards of a main color for the basket and scraps for the bow and stitching
crochet hook K (6.5mm)
crochet hook H (5.0mm)
thin wire (optional to add sturdiness to the handle)
250 yards of Worsted weight
I picked up crocheting to add crochet items to my Etsy shop, but have fallen in love with designing instead. I began making my own patterns almost instantly and am in the process of switching over from taking orders to making patterns.
I love to use different stitches to get all sorts of unique textures and looks.
