CHUNKY CROCHET BASKETS PATTERN

I really love chunky crochet projects! I came up with the idea to make these chunky baskets when I was searching through my yarn stash! I have sooooo many small yarn balls, all remainders from previous projects! I thought these would look nice and neatly organized in a basket which I could also carry around with me when working!

I made two baskets in two sizes, a smaller measuring 5 inches (13 cm) in diameter and a larger measuring 6.5 inches (17 cm)! What I also liked is that you store the smaller in the larger when not in use! I used bright and vibrant colors for the basket but you could make them in any color you prefer!

  6. Beautiful baskets. I'm going to have to try and make them. It will be after Christmas with as much crocheting I have to do now. At this time I'm making all my gifts with crochet. I have 6 more gifts to make plus working full time.
