If you follow me on my blog or on any social media accounts you probably know that I have 2 boys. These kids have so many toys and so many books! I never could think of 2 little kids can have so much stuff! And if i can be completely honest my own things could be better organized. My yarn stash for instance. I can go on forever about my struggle to declutter our small NYC apartment but at the end keeping my home organized feels sometimes like never ending battle. After researching this topic on the web I came to a solution to try to store as many things in baskets, it works great for us so far. I don’t like plastic bins because they look so dull in my apartment, so I decided to crochet some! I’ve crocheted some other holiday baskets before like this Valentine’s crochet basket or Bunny Basket for Easter. I even made matching placemats to some of my baskets for the dining table. But this time I needed something bigger and more functional. I had plenty of solid color baskets in my house and I decided to go for a color combo that would be a good match for my furniture. I chose grey and off white colors to add little lighter shades to my black furniture. I got so obsessed with the chevron crochet basket that I even have an idea how I can stash my yarn in a cute way by color coding my crochet baskets. Like I can store all my yellow and blue colored yarn in matching color baskets! You’ve got an idea!

T-shirt yarn

Tshirt yarn makes a basket sturdy and keeps its shape. To make the chevron basket even sturdier you can add a wooden base. I recommend using a wooden base that has 72 holes so you don’t need to adjust the amount of stitches before you start to crochet the walls of the basket.

Let’s get crocheting!

Note: Choose the type of the bottom from either crochet circle bottom or wooden base. Baskets worked up starting at the either crochet circle bottom or crochet around wooden base and up in spiral way, do not join rounds unless indicated in the pattern. When changing colors, do not cut the thread and carry it along on the back. The color is always changed with two loops on the hook. So you will change color when completing the last yarn over of the last stitch of previous color. You may also refer to color chart for easy color pattern changing. If you choose wooden base start with section 2 Crochet around wooden basket base. If you choose crochet circle bottom start section 1 Crochet basket circle bottom.

Crochet basket circle bottom:

Round 1: With MC and 10 mm hook make magic ring and ch 1.

Round 2:. Sc 6 in magic ring, sl st into first stitch of the ring, tighten the ring by pulling the tail end (6 sts).
