The bag and basket patterns we’ve shared here in the past have always been popular so we love to keen an eye out for more. This is a particularly nice one, with lots of interest and texture, good strong handles and options for several colors too.
Made in a super chunky yarn, or try using two strands of DK worsted weight held together. The pattern makes a basket 11 inches across the base, but simple instructions are given for how to change the size to suit you.
- Size 7mm hook
- total 265m (350g) Super Chunky yarn (with recommended hook size 10mm)
Some wool content in your yarn will give structure to the basket – this is a good project for using up scratchy yarn!
The basket is worked seamlessly in the round from the centre base out.
