From the first time I saw this yarn at Michael’s I wanted to make something with it. This yarn is huge, soft and the colors are perfect!
Of course I’m talking bout Free Spirit by Loops and Threads. The only problem I could see was that this yarn was too bulky to wear, so I immediately began thinking of home decor designs where it could be utilized. After some design and planning I came up with the White Sage Hanging Basket.
25mm Crochet Hook
Any Jumbo Weight Yarn (Recommended: Loops & Threads - Free Spirit)
Approx . 14” x 14”
This pattern works up fast, and I’m talking really fast. It only uses around 25 yards so you’ll be done in no time.
Rd 1: sc1 in 2nd ch from hk, sc2, 3sc inc in last ch, begging working on opposite side of beg ch, sc2, 2sc inc, sl st to join (10 sc)
Rd 2: ch1, sc4, 3sc inc, sc4, 2sc inc, sl st to join (13 sc)
Rd 3: ch1, sc13, sl st to join
-From this point on you will begin working in rows
Row 1: ch1, sk1st st, sc4, ch1, turn (4sc)
Row 2: ch1, sk1st, sc1, sc2tog, turn (2sc)
Row 3: ch3, sk2st, sl st in last st (this row forms the hanging loop)
Fasten off; weave in ends
I use mine to store WIP’s. It’s a perfect little spot to display projects or small books.
You can hang your basket on door handles, bed posts or hooks. I purchased a hook from Hobby Lobby to display mine.
