Yarn Basket

Whenever I'm busy with crochet or knitting projects, there are plastic bags full of yarn laying around every where in the living room. Not exactly living room eye candy, so it was about time that I made a basket to keep all the balls of yarn together. 



It's made from T-shirt yarn that I crocheted together with normal cotton yarn to make it a bit more colorful.


Well, at least my cat likes it.

  1. Hi, I have the same problem as you! Lol! I love the yarn basket you made and I love the color too. You did a great job and at some point I will try to make one too. Thanks for sharing this at crafts a la mode.

  2. Aww, your kitty is so adorable! No matter what kind of craft project I've done over the years, my tabby girl (Stella) has always come to investigate and lend a helping paw, too. :)

    Have a beautiful weekend, dear Liz!

    1. Thank you! No, no pattern. I just made a circle with one ball and then stopped increasing stitches.

  7. Your basket looks great, I thought you were perhaps a visitor of Liz's blog. I've made several of her baskets, I'm not clever enough to make my own pattern up lol.

    1. No, I don't know Liz, haha! A pattern like this is very easy to make up. Just increase your stitches every round until you think you have a big enough circle. Then stop increasing and crochet on until you think your basket is high enough.

  8. What a good idea - I like how you combined it with some cotton. Baskets were just made for cats huh?
