I’ve had this idea in my head to work up a couple baskets, and I have, but I just haven’t been happy with the shape and look of the baskets only using two strands of worsted weight yarn together. I went back to my local JoAnn’s to get yarn to try with four strands when I came across some Grande yarn from Red Heart on sale. I picked up two skeins, and got started as soon as I got home. I definitely like the way they look and sit much better now – an alternative to this would be four strands of worsted weight yarn held together!
30 – 45 – 70 yards of Jumbo Weight #7 Yarn – I used Red Heart’s Grande Yarn (affiliate link) in Aran (about ⅔’s of a skein), Foggy Mist [Gray] (one full skein plus two rows), and Straw [Ivory & Gold Sparkles] (one full skein and about ⅔’s)
H8/5mm Hook for Weaving in Ends (or any smaller hook that fits comfortably under stitches)
HDC – Half Double Crochet

So funny, a basket on your head 😉 Love that cheerful picture!
I'm also making baskets at the moment, what a coincidence!
Yours are looking very good!
Happy 2018 Alexandra!
Hehe! Thought I'd share a good laugh with all.
Just stopped by to see your baskets – so cute! Makes me want to make up some new ones!
I love this pattern. I can use them everywhere. I like how you can use them in the bathroom for towels and washcloths. They really are great in every room. Brenda
Yes! So versatile. I gave these to my mom after I worked them up, and she uses them in her bathroom. I get so excited when I go over there, and see them all set up.
