Hello lovelies! If you are new here then welcome, you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see what new patterns are coming up or have been released and I also have crochet tips and tricks and new stitches for you to try, updated weekly.
So the pattern for this week is a beautiful basket pattern with handles, I wanted to design a floor basket pattern to put all my daughters teddies in, they seemed to be sprawled across the floor or balanced on top of each other in a big messy pile in her bedroom and it looked terrible and not very appealing!
For this pattern I wanted to use a sturdy yarn so it would stand the test of time, so after some researching I came across Hoooked Ribbon XL yarn on the LoveKnitting website, which is a super bulky yarn and was great to work with, I am so used to working with acrylic yarn so when I felt the texture of this it felt so different to what I am used too but it was very easy to work with and I highly recommend it especially if you are wanting to make something like this.
Hope you enjoy this weeks free crochet pattern and come follow Wool and Stitch on Instagram to be kept up to date with the latest designs @wool_and_stitch
