Here is a great way to display your crochet talent on your own Christmas tree, or work up a bunch of these Christmas ornaments for your friends that crochet!
The free pattern includes instructions for crocheting the miniature basket.
Tiny 1-inch yarn balls are then rolled up out of yarn and placed into the basket.
Another cute idea would be to sand off the ends of a toothpick and then bend one of the ends of the toothpick to form a crochet hook. Apply some glue to the end of the toothpick that is bent and let dry, then insert the “crochet hook” inside the basket with the miniature yarn balls!
This project works up very quickly, so it makes a great last-minute project that you will be sure to complete in a very short amount of time!
Worsted-weight yarn works great for this project! You will also need a US Size I/9 crochet hook.
