I am still hooked on crocheting at the moment and am really enjoying doing some little projects that only take a couple of hours each. I had a go at a bigger basket than the last one and I am really happy with it. Here is how it developed.
I created the whole basket in single crochet and just went round and round without specific rows. I used 8ply acrylic wool and a 4mm hook.
I just kept going around until I was happy with the height
Once I was happy with the height, I crochet a shell border and folded the edge over
Then I started making crochet slippers. This is the first pair that I did. Since them I have made another pair for myself, 2 pair for the 10 year old and one pair for the 13 year old. Hubby (strangely enough) didnt want a pair. Now I have moved onto creating my own sock pattern :)
