Crochet Pot

A crochet pot which resulted from a basket!

I was planning to make a basket with a lace fringe but ended up making something different, but pleasantly different. This will need a little more refinement but now I have learnt something. I can go ahead and try some more.

 

 

 

 

 

How did I get to this crochet pot? A series of single crochet stitches across  the basket resulted in this cute little crochet pot.

 

 

 

 

If you find the instructions confusing, please excuse me. I am not used to writing crochet instructions. But I have tried to make it as clear as possible with the help of images.

Having completed the basket I attached a different yarn, lets call it yarn 2, to the last loop of the basket.

Using yarn 2 make single crochet (sc) stitches all around the fringe of the basket.

The second round of single crochet will also go all around the basket but this time on the side. The following image should give you an idea.

Now we come back to the weaving on the stitches all around the fringe. I have made four rounds of single crochet (sc). You can make more 1 or 2 more than that. It’s up to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is how my pot was looking like after each round of single crochet. Our little pot is ready to store little gifts, jewellery, sweets, and the list can go on and on.

Crochet Baskets – spruce up your home

We all have trinkets and little things to store and what could be a better and beautiful way to store them than these crochet baskets.

I have been crocheting too much (that is a relative term) lately. And within crocheting it has been the basket craze. With whatever colour yarn I have all that I have been making is baskets.

I need to get more coloured yarns but then will have to wait for some time. Till then here are the ones I have done.

But do keep looking out for many more that are going to come this way.

These are very quick projects, ready in no time. Especially these small one.

These pink ones are made using cotton yarn.

All these brown, purple, maroon and grey baskets are made using a yarn normally known as purse yarn. No matter what they are called and what people use it for, my baskets turned out pretty well.

Various sizes and various colours and many more colours available to be explored.

Pattern sources are many but the basics remains the same. These are some of the places I referred to for these baskets.
