Chicken Basket

Recommended Posts

Loops and Thread t shirt yarn was at Michael's last year for a while, but I didn't want to pay $6.99 a skein, not knowing what I was going to use it for.  When Michael's  had a clearance on this yarn for $2.99, I finally broke down and bought 4 skeins of the only color left, yellow and white.


I decided to make a basket from a pattern I had gotten as a gift a while ago-  McCall's Crafts pattern 6610, but the pattern uses actual t shirts cut up and made into yarn and uses a bigger hook. The crocheted pattern also was too convoluted for me to figure out, so I winged it, doubling  my yarn and using a P(11.5mm) hook.  The base measures 9" by 13" and it is 5" high.  The handle is removable because it is attached by tieing ribbon bows to the basket sides.
