Basket for Setsuko

I’m going to visit my family in Japan, so I want to be sure to bring something nice as a gift. I also want to take something that will not get squished or broken in transit: crochet to the rescue! I have this really awesome Keep & Share Offcuts yarn, which is made from leftovers from the automotive industry. Bits of seatbelt and industrial-strength thread get recycled and entwined together to make this yarn. Pretty cool, eh? You know me, if it’s crochet AND it’s recycled, we’re onto a winner! It’s limited edition too, DAHling – no two batches are the same.

Here’s the fruits of my labour: a little basket for scarves or socks or other small things, based on the Chunky Crocheted Basket pattern. I held two strands together to make it more beefed up and strong. I hope my cousin Setsuko likes it.

Miko is addicted to crafting, and can often be found late at night drooling over Ravelry, or muttering "just one more row...". At last count, she had 187 different kinds of yarn in her stash, and is currently seeking storage for more. Ch2 and turn.
