An easy-to-make container with a round base which can be made in any diameter, height or number of colours, making it a good project for beginners or for using up yarn left over from other projects.

The container is worked in a continuous spiral from the base up and can be made with or without the folded-over lip at the top edge.

This pattern uses both American and British crochet terms.

You will need:

  • Although you can use any yarn, for a robust container I recommend using a thick yarn (aran or thicker) in a non-stretchy fibre such as raffia, cotton or jute. I used King Cole Raffia in Carousel (1457).
  • The smallest-sized crochet hook that you can comfortably use with your chosen yarn. The smaller your hook the denser your stitches will be and the better your container will hold its shape. I used a 4.5mm (US 7) hook.
  • A stitch marker.
  • A tapestry needle.
