Crochet Baskets 3 sizes

Crochet Baskets 3 Sizes

Getting organized is always on my mind, especially with a toddler running around! What better way than to make your own little baskets! I made them for my entry way above my shoe/accessory cupboard. Perfect for little things! These would also be great for a bathroom to keep q tips/toiletries/cotton balls, etc. in. With a combination of single crochet and front post double crochet these baskets will be tight and naturally form a round base. Add a handle to any basket and make a cute Easter Egg basket for your little one! You can find the handle pattern HERE. The free pattern is listed below in 3 sizes, have fun!
