Crochet Pattern: Basketweave CanisterBy Claire Ortega – 10 Comments
|Organizing stuff has always been one of my weakest points. I just don’t see the problem–if I can stand the “organized clutter” around me, how come other people can’t?
Okay, so admittedly, clutter can be an eyesore. Whip up this quick little canister to store little knickknacks: paper clips, loose change, candies, and what-nots.
Thanks to the basketweave stitch, the interesting and textured design gives the canister a unique look (that is actually easy to make).
Finished Size: base is 2.5″ across, canister is 2.5″ tall
Medium Weight Yarn (small amount)
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
Gauge: 8 sc stitches x 8 sc rows = 2″
