What are you most proud of? Just reworking it in crochet, but that was easy. Actually, making the little tinfoil balls to then wrap the yarn around to make yarn balls. So much faster.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make them assembly-line style if you're doing a lot. Make the basket bodies and then the handles. Then the yarn balls, the knitting needles. For me, this was the very fastest way to do a group of them (other than doing my sample first to see if it all worked out or needed tweaking).

I am tying to from the instructions for the yarn basket ornament that you made. I think it is real cute and my son wanted me to make one or two for his little christmas tree. Thank you, Andrea' T

Yes. Scan up to where the questions are, right next to the project picture. It will say "Name of Website or photo"--and click on the link....it says "Yarn Basket Ornament."

I'm not able to find where the directions are for this project. Do I need to purchase them?

No! For some reason, no matter how I put in the link, it won't take me to the right page. Try to copy and paste this into your search bar: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/yarn-basket-ornament

Thanks for the link, but the pattern is for knitting. Isn't yours crocheted? I actually asked Red Heart if there was a crochet version of this pattern and they said no.

Yes! I state in my "What are you most proud of?" section that I re-worked them in crochet. To do this is very, very easy. All I did was to chain a length I thought would be the "right" size (1.5"? 2"?) and then single crocheted back and forth, stopping to fold the piece over until it was "deep" enough. Then I sewed up the sides and added a handle. I just slip stitched into a side, chained the length I needed, slip stitched into the opposite side, and then slip stitched in each chain back to the other side, and tied off. This makes the "handle" sturdier. Does this help? I hope you have fun crocheting some up!! They make everyone smile!

Thank you so much!! I hope to make a few of these for my co-workers for Christmas, so I have lots of time! :)
