Hey all! Today I’m continuing with the floral theme, and introducing the Hibiscus Baskets. This is a FREE pattern, and features the hibiscus flowers that I’m SO in love with!
You can download the pattern on Ravelry for a small fee!
Both of these baskets use worsted yarn. You can use any worsted yarn, in two colors, tho I suggest using cotton so that the flowers block well. I used Premier Home Cotton (see below for colors and amounts for each basket). This cotton is economical, and it worked up well into these adorable baskets. For the large basket, I worked with worsted yarn held triple. Because of this, it worked up like a bulky yarn, and the large basket was made in no time! That makes it perfect for a last-minute gift, or home décor item.
You know I love my florals. I needed a holder for some of my hooks, and I figured, what better to incorporate than my favorite hibiscus lace?! So we have the hat, the tee, and now the baskets! We’ll see if these flowers have more to offer!
These baskets work up quick. Starting in the center base of the basket, you work out and up, and the lace is worked directly on it. There’s no seaming, and you work in continuous rounds until the very end!
Any worsted (#4) yarn, in two colors, preferably cotton. I used Premier Home Cotton (see below for colors and amounts for each basket).
