The baby shower is just a couple of weeks away
Actually, there are two of them. Showers, not babies.
Very lucky Little One to have so many people celebrating along with us.
I'm using all the spare time I can find to finish up my projects and get ready for company.
Can't show too much yet, in case she looks here.
But this one little thing won't matter.
A simple, yellow, crocheted basket to hold odds and ends in the nursery.
(baby nail clippers, thermometer, diaper pins etc...)
I used Lily, Sugar and Cream cotton yarn in Vanilla Cream and White.
It's about 5.5" across and 2.25" high, after it was folded down.
(But you could keep adding rings to make the basket any size that suited you.)
The bottom is a simple chain 4 slipstitched into a ring, with 8 singles in it.
Then put two singles in each stitch.
Next, single crochet in one stitch and two single crochets in the next. Repeat for that round.
Then two singles in every third stitch,
and then two singles in every fourth stitch,
Switch to all singles when you are ready to build up the sides.
Add any border you like to finish it off.
