Crochet a basket

Crochet a basket
At last here is the long overdue tutorial. Did you get a chance to make some t-shirt yarn? Here is what you need to crochet a basket using that yarn. At least 2 balls of t-shirt yarn and a large crochet hook. I used a 9mm (US M) hook, but you can use an even bigger one. I found that anything smaller was difficult to use with the bulky yarn. The base of the basket is made by crocheting in the round, and increasing each round by 6 stitches. Instructions Chain 6 Join with a slip stitch to form a circle Round 1: 2 single crochet (sc) in each stitch around = 12 stitches Round 2: 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch. Round 3: 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in each of next two stitches. At this point my work measures 5" so I will stop increasing. Round 4: 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in each of next three stitches. Round 5: 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in each of next four stitches. etc. Once the base is complete it's time to work on the sides! Side Round 1: 1 sc in each stitch around Sides Round 2---?

Diamond Trellis Basket Stiff sided diamond trellis basket crocheted from stash yarn for storage – can be made in any size! I’ve had this idea in my head for a while. When I was making my Zigzag Scarf and Diamond Cowl patterns I noticed that this stitch results in a firm fabric. Dense and cosy for a scarf, but when worked with a slightly smaller hook it becomes stiff and therefore ideal for baskets!

Waste not, want not, I decided to recycle it. I have finished making the drawstring bag as shown above.

Crochet Basket Tutorial What you'll need: Cotton Yarn (most weights should work) An appropriate size hook for your yarn Yarn needle Spray Starch (to stiften the basket) Difficulty: Crochet Bowl Tutorial Hello Lovelies, here is my photo tutorial for crocheting a bowl like the ones above. First lets talk yarn. For this project you will preferably need some cotton yarn or similar. Stretchy or woolly yarn will not have the strength to allow the bowl to maintain its shape. knot trivet last month i bought lauren a set of “the family creative workshop” books for her birthday. we’ve been having a blast learning all sorts of new things as we make our way through the incredible variety of projects collected in the volumes. one section we were particularly excited to explore was all about knots, which we’ve long admired both for their usefulness and their beauty. this project is based on a “carrick bend” and is great for creating trivets and placemats, but you could just as easily hang it on your wall to be admired for its decorative charm. have fun!derek & lauren CLICK HERE for the full project after the jump!
