I love Yarn Baskets! This design also introduces a new yarn, T-Shirt Yarn. This type of yarn is great for baskets because it’s so sturdy. The working with t.shirt yarn it feels very different to work with because the yarn is thick and stretchy therefore it can make your hands ache a little when working with it but don’t worry this is normal when working with t-shirt yarn. Take your time and find your comfortable rhythm.
Yarn baskets are great for storage! I use them to keep yarn scraps, accessory and general bits and bobs in them, they also look really pretty on my shelves too!
Working in a round: magic ring and continuous spiral. Working with a speciality yarn.
For the Yarn Basket I used one ball of Super Chunky (super bulky) Hooked Zpagetti in coral and Paintbox Recycled in off white.
A huge thank you to Love Crafts for offering yarn support!
Alternative Yarn Suggestions
If you’d like make the Yarn Basket using an alternative yarn I suggest the following three yarns, all of these yarns can be purchased on Love Crafts. I always recommend doing a gauge swatch whether you are using the same yarn used in the pattern or an alternative yarn.
