I was so happy with this first crocheted basket that the needle won’t be retired any time soon. It is a slow sport, I’d say, taking many evenings to finish one basket using 2 strands of (Mandarin Petit) cotton yarn and a 4mm needle.
It can be used at full height
or folded down to more of a bowl shape
It has bulls’ eye bottom
and a wonky little finishing bump.
It’s useful because it will hold a small collection of cars – and can be tossed into the washer or dryer if dirty.
I wasn’t quite sure it would fit daughter’s taste with all the different colours, but she loves it and wants many more. I have to say I love this appreciating-everything-handmade-trend we have going and hope it will last for many, many years. Do you have the same trend where you live? Anyway, as a handmade-obsessive I love it and I’m a big time supplier of handmade goodies to my family.
More baskets to follow.
