I know I haven’t been publishing to my blog as much as I’d like, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been crocheting or thinking of pattern designs. Life got a little busy recently as I was interviewing for a new job which was about a month and a half process or so then I’ve been transitioning to that new job. It’s all worth it, though, as the job is fully remote which means I get to work from home every day and more accurately work out of my craft room which is now split between my work life and my hobby. Because of that, I have been rearranging and reorganizing my room. As part of all that rearranging and organizing, I have been making baskets to help in organizing. One such basket is this one which is made from jute and cotton that I made to hold my crochet hooks. I have so many custom hooks, though, that I had to make a second one to hold them all. Can we say addicted much? Haha! Hope you enjoy the pattern for them!
Not critical for this project although a tighter tension will help with the shape.
