amigurumi crochet basket

tiny basket

This lovely little 1/2 inch high, picnic basket is full of apples and topped with a banana. The ant was made by my son when he was small. This pattern is special to me because I have made many baskets in the past but this is the first one with a woven look. The woven effect is cleverly achieved by crocheting into the back loops only. Β The pattern comes from hereΒ over at Squirell Picnic. If you like amigurumi, you will love this site. Be sure to check out the “fatamals” and of course “Hodge and Podge
