Stash Baskets


"This is a quick to crochet stash buster project for medium weight yarn. Crochet this small basket / container to store things like crochet hooks, pencils or pens. Perfect for managing your desk clutter AND using up some of that leftover medium weight yarn! Worked with 2 strands of medium weight yarn held together this lovely textured container can be worked up in about one hour. If you would like to use some stashed bulky weight yarn 5 you can easily substitute it instead of the 2 strands of medium weight yarn. Have fun and show me your finished baskets please! Rhondda"

I love this baby bean stitch used to create these stash baskets or cups. I was able to find a video tutorial for the stitch and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share. Here is the link, https//

I find it difficult to make to many stash baskets. Once I fill one up I am on the hunt for a new pattern and once made that basket is soon filled also. These are perfect for my desk top and I will be using them to hold pens and pencils.
