Even though there aren't any Jewish holidays that celebrate hearts, I certainly am not immune to all the heart shaped cuteness going on out there, and so I just had to indulge myself and have a go at this little heart shaped crocheted basket that I've had my eye on for some time. (Especially since on account of jet lag and being on a clock that is seven hours behind ours here in Israel I had a long long night in which to crochet!) The results you see here are 100% inspired by this fantastic crocheted heart basket, though I did add my own touch, and I did play around with the pattern just a bit which I'll explain to you below.
I will admit, this was actually the second heart basket that I made last night, the first one did not make the cut on account of its not stiff enough shape and the fact that I initially thought that dark blue and bright yellow might work....wrong. Fortunately the second try is a winner, and I can't wait to make some more!
