The free crochet pattern for this beautiful basket (also called a “waistcoat” basket) would make a great addition to virtually any room in your home.
It would also be a great gift to present to someone so that they could adorn their home with a very special handmade item made by you!
When the recommended bulky yarn and hook size are used, the finished basket will measure 5 inches tall x 16 inches long x 6 inches deep.
Because bulky yarn is used, this project works up very quickly.
There are both written instructions available for you to follow if you prefer those, or a video for those of you who prefer to crochet patterns from videos!
The recommended yarn for this project is as follows:
#6 super bulky; Lion Brand Hometown USA
Chicago Charcoal (1.5 skeins of 5 oz skeins)
Springfield Silver ( 2 oz of 4 oz skein)
New York White (4 oz of 5oz skein)
However, feel free to obtain any super bulky yarn in colors that will match your intended decor. This basket truly works up spectacularly in any color combo!
