These baskets are perfect for organizing your home, and they make great gifts too. Plus, the two-tone design adds a stylish touch to any room.Materials: To make these baskets, you'll need two colors of bulky weight yarn, a size K crochet hook, and a yarn needle for weaving in ends.Instructions:
- Begin by making a magic circle with your first color of yarn and chain 2.
- Work 10 double crochet stitches into the magic circle, then slip stitch into the top of the first double crochet stitch to join.
- Chain 2, then double crochet into each stitch around, slip stitch to join.
- Repeat step 3 with your second color of yarn, switching back to the first color after every 2 rounds.
- Continue alternating colors and increasing until your basket is the desired size. To create the nesting baskets, make one basket slightly smaller than the other by working fewer rounds.
- When you've reached the desired size, work one round of single crochet stitches around the top of the basket in the same color as the last round.
- To create the handles, chain a length that feels comfortable for you, then skip a few stitches and attach to the next stitch with a slip stitch. Repeat on the opposite side of the basket, then weave in any remaining ends.
