Stand Up Basket Duo

Stand Up Basket Duo

These bright and happy baskets – with or without the wooden base – will make a great addition to any room in your house where you want to corral some clutter. A tighter than average gauge on this smooth bulky yarn makes sure the sides of the basket stand up and don’t collapse.

Pattern notes:

The pattern is written with and without the wooden basket base. I think the base helps it stand up neatly but you can do a crocheted base if you wish.

The basket with the wooden base has sloping sides, the one without has straight sides.
