7″ DIY Crochet Leather Base Basket T-Shirt Yarn Kit
$7.00 – $45.00
This is the second kit I have put together to make yourself a colour-block crochet basket. It is a great multi-level ability project, it is great as a beginner project or for the seasoned crocheter wanting to try something new.
In addition to the kit you will need a pair of scissors, darning needle and crochet hooks to make crochet a basket. You can purchase a set of crochet hooks and darning needle as an optional add-on.
7″ Leather Base with pre-punched holes
Leather end stitch cover (used at the end of the stitching to add a finished look to the project)
2 Spools of Jersey Knit T-shirt Yarn, approximately 200g (90% cotton, 10% polyester)
Link to a YouTube video to visually show you how to make the basket
Add on: 6 and 8mm crochet hook and yarn needle to attach the end stitch cover
The basket I made in the photos the pattern measures 8 3/4″ diameter by 7″ tall and I did not use all of the second spool of t-shirt yarn. I estimate that the maximum height could be as tall as 8 1/2″.
You can choose whether you make the same height of basket or different.
The finished basket can be used in so many different ways, I have found it makes an excellent yarn bowl, plant pot cover to name a few. How will you use your finished project?
