It seems like we have all entered into some weird phenomenon that is this crazy twilight zone episode that is now our day to day lives. Many of us are struggling to find the resources to buy more yarn as many businesses have found themselves closed. We must start to delve deep into our stashes and figure out what to make with what we got. Trying to look on the bright side, some of us may have found ourselves trying to catch up on cleaning while we are at home. This week’s pattern is brought to us by Sarah by Sarah’s Twists, partnering with Clover USA. Thank you to Clover for partnering with Yarn Punk on being able to help keep us safer, and less bored, at home.
Boy have I missed posting here on Yarn Punk. I actually made this pattern way back in January, thinking I could release it when we were all working on those new years resolutions. However, I totally hit a lazy bout of things and held this off for another good time. It seems like now is a better time than ever! I use my hanging basket for my kid’s toys and I was able to get away with using two 3M five pound hooks to keep up my kid’s toy basket. Feel free to make it more of a permanent installation by using proper hooks and properly mounting it into your wall. I hope you all enjoy and feel free to message me for any questions.
Notes about Pattern:
I held 3 strands of worsted weight yarn throughout the pattern. When 1 ball would end, I would just add in a new scrap ball to replace that ball. The easiest way I found to do this was to work half the single crochet by inserting the hook into the stitch, yarn over the 3 original strands, pull through, then add the new yarn to the 3 strands [holding now 4 strands], yarn over all 4 strands, then pull through. I would work 2 or 3 more single crochets with all 4 strands, then drop the old yarn, and continue with the new 3 strands. Just so that the structural integrity of the basket won’t be compromised with too many knot joins. Pictures Below to Help visually show what I mean
