Like many knitters I know, I have picked up exquisite little balls of Habu yarn over the years with no real idea of how or even if I was going to use them. One day I started playing with the fishing net yarn and made a little basket for an air plant…which led to little hanging baskets for more air plants. The pattern is very basic and would probably work well with many other Habu yarns. Have fun experimenting with your stash, you might knit an entire vertical garden!
