My Bits and Bobs Basket.

Are you like me and have hundreds of little balls of wool ... I am always wondering what to make with them all, well yesterday I had an idea. !!!    
I grabbed a few of the ones, where I thought the colours complimented each other and started to work on my Bits and Bobs Basket. I mixed them with T-Shirt Yarn, 400 Grams in Dark Grey.  I used a 10mm Hook to start with and changed to 12mm after the second row. 
  I didn't really have a pattern but I knew what I wanted.  A round basket that would hold all my bits and bobs while I worked on the sofa in the evenings with my crochet projects.   I also wanted to be able to carry it around with me easily, so I started with a basic circle...

Then when I thought it was the size I was after I did the next row with sc in the back of the stitch, this helps start the sides ...
I just LOVE the colours, they have all mixed in so well.    I wanted to make handles so I simply did 10 Foundation Stitches both sides and worked the handles to the thickness that I wanted.....  see super easy and lots of quick fun. 

And there you have it ... a gorgeous wool basket made from Bits and Bobs for my Bits and Bobs.

I just love quick projects don't you ?
Hope that your week is going well so far.  Lots of love from MyLittleCorner


  1. Such a great idea! I love the handles, so easy but effective :-)

  2. This is such a good idea! I love how you could do all this without a pattern - I would need it all written down for me. But it's a fun way to use up small amounts of yarn and very useful too. x
