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!
