I know I probably make too many baskets, but you don’t understand. I need baskets. I’m in an apartment that some would consider tiny, filled with what I consider to be way too much stuff, and I really don’t have any place to put all that stuff. That’s why I need these baskets. And color is cheerful. It can bring life to a dark space. I need more color in my home. And I’ve heard it’s important to have a hobby, so I need to crochet. You understand now, right? I really, genuinely need baskets. And of course, I want them too. But that’s secondary 😉
I didn’t just come up with this pattern off the top of my head. I hardly ever do, because what’s in the top of my head is usually nothing. So, I originally got my inspiration from this image that I found somewhere on Pinterest:
Graphing this pattern was kinda challenging, but really fun. It felt almost like I was creating a puzzle. I love doing puzzles, but to me it kinda feels like a waste of time because once you’re done with the puzzle, you just take it apart and put it away again. But graphing tapestry crochet patterns is just as fun (more fun, in my opinion) than a puzzle, and it’s also not a waste of time since you can make something useful from it! Here’s the graph..
As always, if you’d like the full pattern for the basket I made using the staggered bordered hexagons pattern, let me know in the comments below and I would be more than happy to provide it. And if you make something with this pattern, don’t be shy.. show it off on the All Tapestry Crochet Facebook page! Happy day, and happy crocheting!
