I made this three baskets using some ideas I found in "Simple Crochet". I combined kitchen twine and cotton or wool yarn.
The first one is worked all in single crochet, starting with a circular base, increased every 2 rows. Isn't it great? I cannot believe I did a basket with a crochet!!!
The white and orange is a mini-basket for my ponytail holders. I made it with kitchen twine and Gjestal Wood (got it in elan.com. Not very soft but great texture)
And the last one is an experiment. Made with hemp and cotton yarn is worked in double crochet.
I am so proud of myself!! :-D
