I was trying to come up with some ideas for an Easter crochet project, but I just dropped the Easter and stuck with a plain ole basket 🙂 It’s an easy beginner project for all, whether you celebrate Easter or not. It actually turned out perfectly for a small yarn kit bag. It fits a skein or two of yarn and a couple hooks, so it’s perfect for when you know you’re going to end up crocheting wherever you go, but you don’t want to carry your whole stock of crochet supplies.
Also a perfect addition to your crochet on the go kit.
