Handy! I really could use this basket. I have never been really good with seeing dimensions in my head but I still intend on making this basket. If it is not the size I need, I am sure I can adjust them to make the basket smaller or larger.

I can not believe I spent money on a bag that I now use to hold my crochet items. I could have just crochet myself one in the perfect color. Oh well, it never hurts to have two vessels to haul my crochet items in.

This basket is the perfect project for beginners. It works up very quickly and the result is a very sturdy and very versatile basket. The colour scheme is just perfect for a beach bag too or to hold soaps and creams and other pamper gooodies in an ocean themed bathroom.

This is a pretty good sized basket. According to the pattern it is about 7 1/2" high, and the base is even more sizeable at 8X11". The color scheme is so very serene. It's easy to work up for beginners as it utilizes single crochets only. You will get a finished project that looks like you worked a lot harder on it than you actually did!
