Himalayan Basket


"You can never have too many baskets and this is a beautiful one. The use of bold contrasting colors combined with a spike stitch give it definition and character. Use it to hold odds and ends or as a holder for extra hand towels or dishcloths. It's a medium size basket approximately 6” x 11”. I used a soft t-shirt type yarn that was really fun to work with and has a nice soft rounded appearance but if you wanted more structure you could use an acrylic or even add something to provide a bit more stability such as wire or cording."

It was an absolute joy to work up this project. The elongated Spike Stitch really makes this basket stand out. Although I finished my basket using the Crab Stitch, I think I might try that Twisted Single Crochet the next time. I usually dont have a problem closing the Crab as I normally work an Invisible Join, but the Twisted might prove to be even neater.

I have to admit that I have never crocheted a basket before, mainly because I couldn't find a pattern that spoke to me. But then I seen this Himalayan Basket pattern, It yelled at me to make it! I love the look of this beautiful basket that is nicely written and so easy to follow. I'm going to search for the t-shirt type yarn for this pattern. I also learned a new stitch with this pattern, the twisted single crochet stitch. I like the look of it and it's so easy. I'm looking forward to making my first basket. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

Cheryl Y I haven't crocheted a basket before either! I do love the international flavor of this one though and the lush color choices too! The size is just perfect for what I have in mind. I think what has drawn me to this pattern is the single crochet spike stitch. How attractive!!!
