Organization is a key ingredient in a healthy life, and these multi-size Color Block Crochet Baskets will give you an attractive way to sort that clutter. The thick macrame cord captures the bulk of a basket really well, while also making the finished product nice and sturdy. Add in any color of embroidery thread to give the edge a nice pop. Both large and small items will find a snug home in these cute but functional crochet projects. The easy crochet pattern works up quickly, so you can make several of these for your desk, closet, or shelves.

I love being organized, its the key to working smart. These bulky little baskets look like they are very durable and sturdy. I like the option of using one as an Easter basket as shown in the pictures. A neat way to keep your office desk organized also. Great pattern.

These baskets look strong and sturdy. I love that there is just a touch of color so that you can create your own color palette and style that can be added to any room decor. I wonder if you could use rope or bungee cord to make them. The bungee cord would allow for a little give when filling up the basket and the rope would give more rigidity and support if you wanted to put something heavier than yarn, paper, or clothing in it.

I love the small pop of color in these! Seems like they would be the perfect craft room addition for storage.

ARodriguez, I'm also in love with the little pop of color in these baskets, makes them subtle but such a cute surprise. And I am now dreaming of a craft room filled with these after reading your comment! You could easily customize these to match your dcor and style!

Wow. I really like these. A lot of the time crochet baskets are flimsy, but these look tough. #BestIdeaEver
