What material do you need to crochet a Mother’s Day basket?

To start, let’s talk about the supplies you will need for this project. You will need a crochet hook (size 8 mm and 5 mm), some t-shirt yarn (I use t-shirt yarn from my store). Tshirt yarn is a fantastic material for use in crocheting projects, and it’s especially great for making baskets because of its sturdy structure. It is made from  cotton fabric and is soft, pliable, and comes in a wide range of colors. This way, you can choose the best one that suits your mom’s style or the color scheme of her living room or bedroom. And of course, the wooden base! The engraved wooden base adds an extra touch of uniqueness to this already thoughtful and meaningful present. Better, get a kit!

Now let’s move onto the directions. Start by crocheting around the wooden base, you can find a more detailed tutorial down below. Once you  finish crocheting around the base, begin crocheting the sides of the basket. I used the Turkish star crochet stitch which is a beautiful, sophisticated, yet surprisingly easy to crochet .  Again, I have included detailed instructions down below in case this is your first time making a crochet basket.
