Heart basket

Heart basket

The heart design on this basket makes it perfect for Valentine's Day themed project.

I have discovered the Fair Isle technique and I think this basket is really easy to make and works up quickly.

This basket can be gifted on different occastions like Valentine's Day, Mother's day or even other important events. It can be used as home decor, as crochet hooks holder (like I do :)) or just to store pencils and other desk items.

Start with the red yarn:

Row 1: 6 sc in magic circle

Row 2: (inc) x6

Row 3: (wc, inc) x6

Row 4: (2 wc, inc) x6

Row 5: (3 wc, inc) x6

Row 6: wc in each stitch around


Row 1: bl-sc in each stitch around

How to change colors?

  • insert hook into the next V space
  • pull up one loop of first color yarn
  • yarn over with second color yarn to complete the wc stitch

After these stepts are completed, you'll be able to continue with the second color yarn.

Make sure to carry along both colors, on the back side of your work.
