Yarn for Crochet Baskets
All the crochet baskets below use different types of yarns, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you. You will see baskets made with thick yarn, t-shirt yarn and even sometimes twine.
I prefer using thicker yarn for storage baskets like this. You will notice in my patterns that I love using Wool-Ease Thick & Quick from Lion Brand as well as Bernat Blanket Yarn for crocheting baskets because they are both a super bulky six yarns.
Using a super bulky weight yarn helps keep the basket upright, sturdy and stiff! Click the image below to check out the yarns I like using when making my baskets, so they are more upright.
Take a peek and let me know what you think of the variety of yarn showcased! Furthermore, don’t forget to kindly let me know in the comments which one you’d choose for your basket project!
How to Make a Crochet Basket Stiff
Another subject I wanted to touch on since we are talking about making a basket is how to make a crochet basket stiff.
First, I suggest that when working a basket to use two skeins of yarn at once. Crocheting with two skeins of yarn makes for a sturdier basket and one that will hold up to daily use!
Second, You could use a mixture of glue and water to make a crochet basket stiff.
Steps to stiffen baskets with glue
- Put three parts of glue in a container with some warm water.
- Make sure that the basket is thoroughly coated with this glue mixture by spraying it all over.
- Allow the basket to air dry.
