The Eco-Friendly Yarn That’s Perfect for These Crochet Baskets!

You probably have seen this yarn all over the internet and also most likely were drooling about it just like me! It is just as amazing in person! I love the fact that this yarn is 100% vegan, uses no harmful chemicals, and saves water.

Yep, this fantastic yarn made with fiber from sustainably sourced eucalyptus trees is excellent for the environment. How awesome is that! Find out more about Tina Tape Yarn and get some for yourself! 🙂

T-shirt Yarn Works Great for This Mini Basket Too

If you can’t get your hands on this yarn, you could also use t-shirt yarn in its place and still get the same result!

This yarn is a worsted weight yarn, so even if you would prefer to use something like Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice that would work too!

Hold Two Strands of Yarn Together To Make The Basket Sturdier

To make my basket as shown, I held two strands together of the Tina Tape yarn and worked the pattern as written! I prefer using two strands held together because it makes the basket much sturdier!

There is so much yarn, one could quickly get 10+ baskets from just two skeins of yarn, so be prepared to have a basket overload!
