On Stands Now

If you wanted to try a more simple shape version of my owl basket, now is the time.

My Owl Basket is in the newest Fall/Winter 2015 Better Homes And Gardens Make it Yourself magazine now.

Plus there are 75+ other adorable projects in there to try as well.  I’m off to try my first Monkey’s Fist Knot now (it’s in the magazine.)


New Owl Basket Two Pattern ~ 50% Off For One Week Only

Shorter, but still big.

I’ve had many requests for a smaller version of my popular Owl Basket, so I have made one to compliment the original.

It’s still has a generous circumference of 25″ to hold many things such as yarn or washcloths. Made by holding two strands of super bulky yarn together, this basket works up in just a couple of nights (one if you are really ambitious). It is sturdy and can stand up on it’s own, yet can collapse flat when not needed.

4 Strands? Whaaaaaat? How To Work With Multiple Strands

Lots of yarn!!
Lots of yarn!!

The Owl Basket pattern above uses four strands of bulky yarn at once to make huge stiff stitches. I’ve had a couple of requests on the best way to crochet like this, so I made a video.

The tutorial below will show you not only how to work with multiple strands of yarn, but will help those wanting their Owl Basket to be as stiff as possible.  It also gives some other reasons why you might want to work with multiple yarns in your own projects. So watch on!

My newest pattern is here!

These reversible baskets are a great way to try out Fair Isle Crochet.

Using medium worsted weight yarn, you can start with the small leaf basket to get your feet wet and eventually move on to the large owl basket when you’re ready.

Not only are these baskets cute, but they are practical. You can reverse from pattern to a solid color by simply flipping them inside out.

Get them for free with any purchase in my shop.

There is no minimum amount to purchase.
