Here is a crochet project that results in an extremely authentic-appearing basket! This pattern makes use of the Moroccan Tile Stitch in combo. with chunky yarn, and we all know what chunky yarn means — it comes together very quickly! There are also instructions for making a second layer of crochet for a liner, which makes the basket twice as sturdy, as well as more attractive. The recommended yarn for this project includes Lion Brand Heartland Thick & Quick Katmai 2 balls and Acadia 2 balls, a Size K hook, and stitch markers. We have placed links to a few yarns, available at Amazon, that you might want to consider. There are also video tutorials for those of you who are more video-oriented.
