At any given time you’ll find an assortment of items on our coffee table: yarn, crochet hooks, remote controls, game controllers, books, etc. I don’t mind the clutter, usually, but some times I go on a cleaning frenzy and literally flip the table upside down (after I remove the more fragile objects of course). When the table is tidy the entire living room looks barren and without character. Why is that? I can’t figure it out but the other day, after staring at the clean table, I wondered if a decorative bowl or basket would bring the room together. I like to think this crochet t-shirt yarn crochet basket is doing the job. What do you think?
It takes very little time to make and is great for beginners. Bonus: you can make your own t-shirt yarn and get rid of old t-shirts!
T-shirt Yarn Crochet Basket
To make this bowl you will need about 120 grams of t-shirt yarn and a size 10.00 mm hook.
Pattern is worked in continuous rounds, do not join or turn at the end of each round. Use stitch marker to keep track of rounds. Beginners: refer to this post for help with working in the round.
Round 1: in magic ring make 6 sc
Round 2: inc in each st (12 sts)
Round 3: (sc, inc) x 6 (18 sts)
Round 4: (sc 2, inc) x 6 (24 sts)
Round 5: (sc 3, inc) x 6 (30 sts)
Rounds 6-10: work even
Round 11: sl st around. Fasten off and weave ends.
Your bowl is ready to use! Make it decorative, make it functional or both!
