Yup, I am a basket case, but in the nicest kind of way. I have gotten myself hooked (excuse the pun) of crocheting baskets lately and I have been having so much fun with them!
I started making just one for my Mum as part of her Christmas present, but as per usual, after the first one I felt compelled to make a second, then a third.....and well, you get the idea. I think I am now up to number 8, but I really stopped counting after number 5!
These two were for my Mum and my Aunt as part of their Christmas presents
We had an early Christmas with family a couple of weeks ago.
My Uncle thought the basket would make a great hat!
After number 5, I started adding embellishments to the baskets - just for the fun of it.
And this is the one I am working on at the moment. I have promised myself that it will be the last one, but you just never know.........
I dont have a pattern or tutorial for these, I just made them up as I went along. I also checked out other people tutorials through pinterest. My crochet board can be found here if you would like to check them out.
