Ever notice that most baskets available to contain kid and dog toys are made of polyester or plastic? Here’s a soft sided basket for clearing up clutter that is machine washable and reuses an old bed sheet!

Once you’ve made one of these, you’ll see how easy it is to adjust the pattern--larger baskets require more stitch increases for the base, and small baskets use fewer stitches and rounds of knitting.
