Crochet Tutorial: Simple Basket

Crochet Tutorial: Simple Basket

I’m *vine-ally* coming to the last few days of puns! I’ve been a *basket-case* trying to think of great ideas that are *ex-straw-dinary* and fun. I know some of you can’t *container* feelings about what you think. Some think they are *unbe-weave-able*, others think they are pretty *rattan*! I have been a bit *bamboo-zled* over the response! With so much on my *plait* right now, a *wicker* woman might give up and quit these puns. Not me! I would be in a *bushel* of trouble! Doing 14 projects in 14 day isn’t easy, but I am someone who *sticks* with it! These projects and puns are a tradition and this tradition has become *woven* in my heart because these are all for Nate to *reed* and crocheters to enjoy! Once these are over, however, I plan to *braid* around and celebrate that I *willow*-nly have the wedding to *carry* out! Yayyy! Stay tuned for the Mini Basket tutorial! It will be up on the blog later today-just in time for Easter!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this project:

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
