Crocheted Basket with flower inspiration


So here is the final finished basket and, yes, I am now happy with the way it looks.


It is perfect for some of my many works-in-progress (well, who doesn’t have half a dozen things on the go at any one time?) or just for storing wool.


I came across a version of this basket here and just HAD to have a go myself. As mentioned in my previous post, I decided to embellish the less-than-invisible seam with crocheted flowers topped off by a butterfly.


It certainly is easier on the eye than the plastic carrier bag that was formerly home to my mobile works-in-progress and will look a whole lot prettier sat by my feet next to the sofa.


Now all I have to do is convince the puppy that chasing her round the lounge with a rapidly-unravelling ball of wool in her mouth is NOT the fun it seems to be.

  1. This is gorgeous! I must add this to me “Must Make” list!


  2. Thanks for the follow! I really love *love* this crochet basket! Only fitting for something crocheted to hold our future crocheted items, right? 🙂


    • Thanks! Only trouble is I need several more because, like all crafters, I’ve got a few projects on the go at any one time! Do you get much time to make anything now you have Nora?


      • Same here! It’s like I have crafting ADD! Why is it so much more fun to start the projects than finish them?! With Nora it does pose a challenge! I find that at this stage most of my day goes to doing “Nora stuff” but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Plus we are also in the moving process right now, so I kinda just accepted that nothing will get done right now. 😉


      • I could take advice from you! You have a house full, how do you get anything done!


  3. Exciting! At least you’ll have an excuse to make lots of stuff for your new home. Good luck with the move:)

  5. Wow, this is absolutely lovely. I am an avid Crafter/Crocheter and always have a few WIPs, so these are just beautiful to contain a few! Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern. I love your work
