Crochet Work Basket.
I love it, I get so much pleasure from putting away my latest project in it’s special work basket.
It was hard work on my wrists using yarn this thick, well cotton actually, but it was worth it.
It started with a simple circle to create the base, this image doesn’t actually show quite how thick the cotton is but the hook is a size 11 so that may give you an idea!
With perseverance and regular breaks for my wrist it grew taller, I love the pattern created by simple switches from single crochet to half treble crochet and working into back loops only. So effective.
When I felt it was tall enough it was time to break for the handles by replacing the stitches with a chain ready to stitch over on the following round.
I have wanted to make myself a work basket for ages and finally got around to it!
You can make your own work basket using this link to the pattern.
Happy hooking my friends.
