crochet rag basket

 Hello there, hope you are having a lovely weekend.  
This past week, I took a drive and found a cute little crafty fabric/yarn store - I purchased some t-shirt yarn - they had 800 gr balls and I found one in this gorgeous yellow. 
I also snapped this cute pic of my youngest in front of the store!!

I love making the rag baskets - this yarn is perfect for that kind of project.  I found a pattern in my newest crochet book - Modern Crochet

 I decided on a medium sized basket, one that could hold a few things at least.

 The patterns in this book are just beautiful == very clear, easy to follow and lots of photographs for those who like visual instructions ☺
 I like how this pattern finishes off with a row of slip stitch - it creates a nice little finishing edge.
As you can see, I've filled this basket up with yarn balls === for photographic purposes ☺  I'm planning to give this one away.

Thanks for popping in ♥
