A tisket, a tasket, a green and yellow basket or at least a yellow one with tassels, lol. I love baskets and I keep them all full with all kinds of stuff. The addition of the tassels on this basket makes it that much more attractive over the other patterns I have seen recently.

A lady that I used to learn crochet techniques from was dead set against tassels. She said that they were a waste of yarn. I was not on board with that then and I am not onboard with that now. I think any bit of attention to detail makes any project just that much more special. Long live tassels!

This very nice basket reminds me of one of the first projects I made using two strands of yarn together. I really like the tweed effects of the yellow and white combination, and the only thing Id change is to use both colors for the tassels rather than solid colors. The designer includes a link to a photo tutorial of this project, too. I tried the .pdf download but couldnt get it to work.

Right now at Michaels Craft Store you can snag Caron One Pound skeins for $7. Let's here it for a project that looks like you spent way more making it than you actually did! The yellow and the white together looks just like fresh corn on the cobb with butter! Too funny. You need the tassels with this one, it makes the basket shine!

I can do better than that. I never go into Michaels or JoAnn's without at least a 50% off coupon.

This is a very easy and practical pattern. You can use it for so many different things. Magazine rack, storage, line it with a grocery bag and it's a garbage can. If you do it in brown and omit the tassels it would work in a man cave. I think I want it for my bathroom, to hold things.
