    ​Super simple double crochet t-shirt yarn storage basket by Caroline Coates

     

    ​Super simple double crochet t-shirt yarn storage basket by Caroline Coates

    What you need

    I've made my own t-shirt yarn (see previous blog) or you can buy it, Fred Aldous stock Wool and The Gang fabric yarn.

    Use 10-12mm hook depending on thickness of yarn.

    Abbreviations

    DC double crochet

    SS slip stitch

    Instructions

    Chain 4 or use a magic ring.

    1st row work 2 DC into each stitch (total 8) SS to complete.

    2nd row Work 2 DC into first stitch, 1 DC into second stitch and repeat (total 12).

    Continue alternating 2 DC and 1DC for next few rows until you reach desired diameter of your basket. This will continue to grow as a flat circle.


    Don't worry about working in rows you can just work in a spiral.

    This basket I worked in this way to a diameter of approx. 25cm.

    To start working up the sides of the basket, work 1 DC into each stitch from the previous row. 

    If you are creating strips it's best to SS at the end of each row, this will give more even rows.

    I worked about 12 rows to a height of approx. 18cm.


    Keep going and make a really big basket!

    Crochet a couple of straight pieces of crochet and attach handles.
