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!

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.

    I just started teaching myself to crochet using your videos on YouTube. Even though I’m in the US, your videos and explanations are very easy to understand. I’m wanting to try this yarn basket and was wondering if there if a video that goes along with the pattern in your book (which I just received last week!).

    Thank you so much,
