I was struggling with what to give a friend of mine for Christmas when it came to me, a set of crochet baskets!  Who doesn’t need more storage solutions?  I know I do, what I really need is a giant wall hung unit to store all of my yarn in.  Doesn’t seem to matter how much I have, I am always buying more.

What You Need

6.5 mm hook

1 large ball – Bernat Softee Chunky (for all 3 – you will have a bit left over, save that for next week’s pattern)

darning needle

Stitches Used

Magic circle

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

slst – slip stitch

sk – skip

st – stitch

 

 

Important Tip

The chain 1 at the beginning of each row is not counted, and do not work in it.  Slip Stitch to the first single crochet in the round, and work the first stitch of that row in the same stitch as the chain.
