bernat® blanket confetti™ marled crochet basket

This generously sized crochet basket is perfect for stashing your yarn, work in progress or keeping extra pillows and blankets organised. The pattern is worked entirely in single crochet to form the project's sturdy foundation. Start the pattern at the base by crocheting a circle, then work in a tube. Skipping stitches in one round and chaining over those skipped stitches in another round creates the built-in handles. A reverse single crochet edge adds further detail. Finish by adding a decorative patch on top and bring on the fringe!
