Want to make a super cute crocheted basket that will keep its shape without stiffener? Try crocheting over a recycled plastic strawberry basket, and you'll love the results so much you'll certainly want to make a whole bunch, I know I'm not stopping at three! I haven't seen this idea anywhere, so please do give me credit for it if you're inspired to make your own, and actually this came about as a result of now quite succeeding with my original idea, which was something totally different! Love when that happens!
One could of course use any really chunky yarn for this, but I just love the results with the commercial t-shirt yarn. The thickness and smoothness of the yarn make this basket really sturdy and yet soft at the same time. Want to give this a try? I've got some important tips for you, so keep on reading!
