You want to know what a fun, easy, quick project is in the dead heat of summer?
I’ve never published basket patterns before now, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because I did not like making them. I’d made one back in the day (which still graces my dining room), but I didn’t enjoy the process because my hands just ached all the way through. Using crazy thick yarn with an unnaturally tiny hook is a recipe for wrist issues, and so the idea of ever making a basket again was not really an option for me.
Until I decided there had to be a better way!
And once I figured out how to make beautiful baskets without killing my hands, I went a little crazy and ended up designing 4 patterns. I think you’ll love this method — not only does it save you the pain, but it produces professional-grade baskets that are significantly sturdier than any crocheted baskets I’ve seen, and it all comes down to the addition of one thing – plastic canvas! (Seems obvious now, right?)
As usual, my patterns are 100% free on the blog; but if you prefer the ad-free PDF versions, you can grab the Basket Bundle, which includes all four of these patterns, for just $5:
So, scroll down, click the basket that strikes your fancy, and get ready to make a piece of beautiful decor that will last for years to come.
