DOUBLE CROCHET T-SHIRT YARN STORAGE BASKET BY CAROLINE COATES

 

What you need

I've made my own t-shirt yarn (see previous blog) or you can buy Wool and The Gang fabric yarn.

Use 10-12mm hook depending on thickness of yarn.

Abbreviations

DC double crochet

SS slip stitch

Instructions

Chain 4 or use a magic ring.

1st row work 2 DC into each stitch (total 8) SS to complete.

2nd row Work 2 DC into first stitch, 1 DC into second stitch and repeat (total 12).

Continue alternating 2 DC and 1DC for next few rows until you reach desired diameter of your basket. This will continue to grow as a flat circle.


Don't worry about working in rows you can just work in a spiral.

This basket I worked in this way to a diameter of approx. 25cm.

To start working up the sides of the basket, work 1 DC into each stitch from the previous row.

If you are creating strips it's best to SS at the end of each row, this will give more even rows.

I worked about 12 rows to a height of approx. 18cm.

Keep going and make a really big basket!

Crochet a couple of straight pieces of crochet and attach handles.
