NEEDLE Knitting Pattern ♥ This little basket is super fast and easy to make and really fun to use! This pattern is a template/guide/recipe for making super easy knit baskets! I recommend Bernat Blanket yarn, Kitchen Cotton yarn (from various labels, held triple), Jute, “Tarn” (tee-shirt yarn) or “Plarn” (made from plastic shopping bags).

NOTE This pattern is a template on how to knit a simple basket in any size you want! I’ve listed the numbers of stitches I used when I made the sample if you would like to recreate the basket shown in the photo. Please be aware however that individual knitters may have different knitting tension and different yarns can also affect the finished size. Knitting a swatch before starting this project is recommended and will be very helpful!
