I wanted to make my own basket to store bits and pieces of yarn. I found a great free pattern at the 'Crochet in Color' blog, but ended up altering it a bit. After a few rounds I realised I was making it from the inside out, but I really liked the braided textured it was creating so I kept going. I also made the handles a bit longer. I'm definitely keen to make this pattern again and stick to the original instructions because the baskets on the blog look fantastic!
