Beautifully Stashed

Beautiful basket, made from Zpagetti t-shirt yarn. Whips up within an hour or so and looks fantastic, don’t you think?

I’m quite new to using chunky yarn, but am fast becoming a fan. I’m in the middle of making a cover for a particularly ugly footstool, but have run out of yarn! As if I need an excuse to buy more….

I found the pattern at Crochet in Colour (click the image for the pattern), where I find a lot of my favourite projects.

I’ve added this project to Hookin On Hump Day over at Moogly, which is one of the greatest crochet blogs around!

  4. Oooo now I really want to try that yarn! I saw that Lion Brand is selling it. Love the color you chose. Thanks for sharing at Hookin On Hump Day!

  5. This looks lovely! I made a cat bed with the Zpagetti yarn but I found it really tough to crochet with and I injured my wrist, did you hve any problems with it?

    • Thanks Hannah!

      I did find it tough going at times – I think I made this basket with double strands too. But because it was a straightforward stitch it moved along really quickly. I hope the wrist injury recovered well, yikes!

      • Haha yes it did fortunately! It did put me off Zpagetti though, I might have to give it another go and see if I get on any better with it this time!

  6. That looks great! I haven’t tried the Zpagetti yarn yet. I think I now have the perfect excuse to buy some 😉

    • Don’t forget to check second hand sites, or online market places to pick some up, I find there are some great bargains that way.

      Enjoy, it’s a lovely basket and folds up to lie flat too.
