One of the best parts of being a maker is that when you need a container you can just make one!
I found myself cleaning up the guest bedroom, which held the remains of studio remodel and needed someplace to put little things here and there. I didn’t have any containers that were just the right size. So, I whipped these up real quick and am finding that they’re the perfect size for a number of uses.
The supplies you need for each miniature hanging basket include: a 9.00 mm crochet hook (US size M/N), approximately 40 yards of super bulky yarn (I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick), scissors and a tapestry needle for tucking ends.
Rnd 1: work 8 SC into a magic circle and pull the circle tight (or CH3, join to create a loop and work 8 SC into the center of the circle), join with a SLST to beginning SC. (8 sts)
Rnd 2: Ch1, work 2 SC into same stitch as beginning CH1, 2 SC in each stitch around, join with SLST to beginning SC. (16 sts)
Rnd 3:Ch1, work 2 SC into the same stitch as beginning CH1, SC in the next st, *2 SC in the next st, SC in the next st*, repeat from * to * 6 more times., join with a SLST to beginning SC. (24 sts)
Rnds 4: Work on SC in each stitch around, do not join. (24 sts)
Rnds 5 – 6: repeat Rnd 4
Rnd 7: SLST into the next st, CH1, SC into the same stitch as the CH1, SC in each st around, join with a SLST to beginning SC. (24 sts)
Rnd 8: Working a reverse single crochet (or crab stitch), RSC into each stitch around the brim. You will be working counter clockwise. Join with a SLST to the first RSC.
Finish off. Tuck ends and there you have it!
I hope you find this basket as useful as I have. I’m going to make one for every room of the house.
