DABBLING ON THE DARK SIDE. ..

Hooking and me πŸ€”

I am still in a storeage frame of mind so thought I would have a go at crocheting a basket.

Now this basket made in the round is a bit of a jumble, I lost track of the join and ended up with too many increases. So I finished it off added a little loop to use as a work basket.

I do like the little neat stitches and the firm fabric it has made but need to pay more attention to marking the join.

I have made a larger crochet basket.

I just worked this backwards and forwards which was easier to keep track of the increases and then I sewed up the seam at the end. I do like the ridges created by working this way.

Both baskets were made using aran weight yarn and I chose a size 4 hook which has made a nice firm basket.

Not a natural hooked! !!

Woolly wishes,

  1. I do both knitting and crochet equally well, though I’m not “advanced” in either. I tend to avoid things that are very complicated like brioche or billions of cables. I love a good crochet basket. I have rather a lot of crocheted containers (I can see two from where I’m sitting on the couch).
