My lovely friend, Stephanie, asked me to design this prop basket pattern. She actually made the one pictured above. Even though the colors are neutral, the Celtic weave adds a wonderful pop of texture to the photo. However, this basket would also look great in the home as a storage container for yarn or other crafty items, so I’ve also included instructions for handles like the one pictured below.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Size: 8″ tall x 16″ wide (with handles it measures about 10″ tall)
- 4 skeins (330 yds) of super bulky #6 yarn such as Lion Brand Hometown USA or Jiffy Thick & Quick
- Size 10.0 mm (N/P/15) crochet hook
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Third Loop: This is the strand of yarn that runs horizontally just below the back loop of the stitch. There is an excellent tutorial here: http://www.mooglyblog.com/third-loop-half-double-crochet/.
The Celtic Weave Basket was hosted as a 3-part crochet along (CAL) on the I Like Crochet Blog in September 2016. Below are the links to each of the CAL pages.
