Crochet Pattern – Hanging Basket

Heyo all,

It is time for tea time with Jessica again. I am enjoying a cup of Choc Berry Bazaar (another T2 tea). Today I am here to tell you about an awesome crochet  pattern that I found the other day. I haven’t crocheted in ages, if you follow my Instagram blog @crochet_cat you will have noticed that I have been practicing my sewing and embroidery.

However my fingers were itching to get back on the hook and I had a bit of time so I tried this pattern from Dwellerinalittlehollow who translated it from Norwegian. (What a legend )

I think the pattern requires chunky wool in order for it to be big enough to hold clothes, with that being said, I used 8ply wool with a 4.25 hook which made it big enough to hold a phone while it is charging. If you don’t have chunky wool but you want it to be bigger, you can also double or triple strand crochet to make it chunkier.
