How do you make crochet baskets with a heart shape for Valentine’s day??
For sturdiness I used wooden heart shaped base and t-shirt yarn, 5 mm crochet hook and 10 mm hook. All these materials you can find in a KIT together with a PDF pattern. First step, I crochet around the wooden base of the basket through each hole. Then I simply crochet the walls of the basket using a waistcoat stitch. And finish off with slip stitch for a pretty edging.
