I saw a lady on Ravelry named likerussel make this basket pattern larger and use it for baby diapers. I have a baby shower to attend in September and I thought it was a perfect idea. The colors of the nursery are pink and green with a touch of red.
Crochet Stash Basket by The Purl Bee
I used a J hook and two strands of Red Heart Super Saver yarn in the colors Med Thyme and Candy Print. I followed the directions for the bottom but only did 3 repeats of the side. I mimicked the side loops for the handles, only I did the two loops over 11 stitches. The basket is 10″ tall and has a circumference of 41″. This should hold a whole package of diapers.
Since I have all of this Red Heart in my stash from making tote bags, I decided to make this next basket.
I did up to 11 sc between the increases and then did one repeat on the side. I may put some dishcloths in this and give it as a gift.
This last basket I did the same 11 sc between the increases but I did sc rounds all the way up until I did a row of the loops. I may use this one for my slippers. This is a fun versatile pattern.
Just for fun here is my latest pair of stitch markers that I made for a Rav friend.
I hope you all have a wonderful, safe and fun weekend!
