Crocheted basket

on December 20, 2014

I made several of these baskets – they were perfect for simple Christmas presents

I used 100% cotton yarn and 3mm hook, but the pattern could easily be made with any thread/yarn and hook combination. The shape will be the same but the size will be different.

Materials:
100% cotton yarn – I used an organic cotton yarn called Mirka made by a Czech company called Nitarna, but any similar yarn should be ok
3mm hook
