As promised, I said I would share my adventures with “Navajo Knitting”/Crochet. As soon as I watched the video, I went straight to my overabundant cotton stash and found this beautiful Rose color. I must have had about 2 lbs, just waiting for the perfect project!
This pattern, my own creation, just about makes itself. Especially with triple thick strands! It is a bit heavy, but I will just bet you, it will still be in use in the year 2525. LOL (That’s only 12 years . . . )
The basket itself used up around 13 oz. of my yarn stash. \o/
This is an adaptation of one of my favorite creations. The pattern is available in my Etsy shop. Just make more of the base rounds, less of the rounds of shell stitch . . . experiment with hook sizes . . . single strand, multiple strands. I use this pattern to make bags, totes, baskets, and even hats (without the handles, of course!)
I hope I have sparked your creative imagination a little. Let me know if I can anwser any questions . . . happy hooking!
