Crochet basket

Every time I come across something what seems to be easy for me to make I do not think what kind of yarn I have to use in order to get the exact final effect as on the picture in front of me. Sometimes it doesn’t matter. Sometimes it does! It did matter this time. I saw a picture (that one below) and I really liked it. I looked at the pattern and I got all excited because it’s very easy! I thought: I’m gonna make it !


<————— This is how it looked


When you look at mine, it’s totally different!

I wasn’t thinking that to make it I need specific yarn. Thicker and more able to stand on its own. The one I had and used for this basket is really light and not so good to support itself. Somewhere in the middle of making this basket I new mine won’t look like the one I wanted to make. As a new to crocheting and still learning stuff I’d decided to keep making it. Just for the practice.

While still “practicing” 🙂 I got an idea. Yep… it happens sometimes! 🙂 Instead, I thought, I might try to make something different. I took one of our plant pot and put inside the unfinished project I’d been making. It fit perfectly. Hm… almost! 🙂 I’ve decided I’ll finish it as a cover for that pot.  In order to do that I changed a little that pattern. Instead of making that extra fold on the top of this basket I did something different. In the last 4 row I decreased the amount of sc instead of increasing it. That way my basket would hold on to the edges of my pot and not going down. When you look at that pattern you’ll know what I’m talking about.

My basket it’s an awesome idea to cover ugly looking pot, and make it to look pretty and interesting!

    Glad to see you back at WW! I keep seeing “slouchy” baskets and I’m so in love with them. Great!


  2. I tried to reply to your comment by e-mail but your e-mail is not linked to your blogger account. so here is the information on the borax:
    I found all of my supplies at Wal-Mart. I had looked for it other places but could not find it. I know that sometimes Publix has the supplies but not the Washing Soda.
    I hope that this helps.


Don’t be shy and let me know what’s hiding in your head!
