Geometric Basket Crochet Pattern

So, if you’re anything like me, your space is overflowing with yarn. It’s everywhere. Well, what better place to store your yarn than in a basket made of yarn?!

That’s exactly what the Geometric Crochet Basket is. You can store lots of stuff in this creative and durable basket. But my personal favorite is to put it next to my workstation, overflowing with my yarn haul. I also love that you can use this to tote around all your gear as well, perfect for coming and going to yoga class.

It’s got a stylish chevron pattern that will fit into any home’s decor, and it’s got handles for easy transport. Make a laundry bin for your granddaughter headed to college. Or make a stylish basket for neat storage in a small space. This basket will hold up to whatever you need it to be.

It’s made from a bulky Plymouth Encore Mega Yarn. It has extra cushion and softness, and this yarn is THICK. It’s an acrylic wool blend, so you know it’s durable.  

If you want to get your hands on this plushy yarn, check out the super easy crochet kit I put together. It’s got everything you need. All the Plymouth yarn required and a step by step digital PDF pattern.

This can be a super fast and practical project for you to work on, and the kit makes it that much easier. Get one today and see for yourself!
