Mini Basket Pattern

I finally finished this mini basket crochet pattern I was working on (for what seemed like forever)1 It was my fault since this is a quick project but, I was putting off weaving in ends! The worst. Right?

I know that everyone’s favorite part of working with yarn is weaving in ends. Just kidding, I know it’s not! It’s really not that bad, promise!

The Yarn For This Basket

I used less than a skein of bulky T-shirt yarn that I found at my local craft store to make these T-shirt yarn crochet baskets.  Yay! I love fast and quick projects!

I have found some great tutorials online like this one from Mollie Makes about How to Make T-Shirt Yarn if you aren’t able to find any in your local yarn stores.

You could also use Bernat Maker yarn as a substitute, and it will work just as well.

I also love the fact that because this tee yarn is bulkier, it is the perfect solution to the age-old questions how do I make a crochet basket stiffer and sturdier?

Use Bulky Six Yarn Instead!

This crochet basket pattern takes minimal yarn and could even be made with a bulky 6 yarn as a substitute if you have trouble finding T-shirt Yarn. I recommend using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick as a great substitution.
