I don’t have a basket problem… YOU have a basket problem! Ok, sorry. That was super defensive of me. However, I will admit that I am seriously addicted to crocheting these little baskets right now. This Ribbed Basket crochet pattern was designed so quickly, I could hardly wait to share it with all of you!
I mean, they are very practical. They use up my yarn stash. They work up in under an hour. And they also make great gifts! Everyone who hosted us for Easter this year got one with a plant inside. They were so well received, and I love how they are reusable.
I think it’s possible that I have them in just about every room now.
In my office, holding crochet hooks.
In my living room as a candle cover.
It would even be cute holding spoons on a coffee bar!
