The Mini Basket crochet pattern by Merrian Holland is perfect for those looking to make a practical home accessory. This handmade container is great for storing knick-knacks and other items scattered around the house. Use this basket to hold face towels, hair elastics, toiletries, and more. The pattern calls for Garnstudio DROPS yarn and a 7.0 mm hook. However, you can work it with any yarn scraps left in your toolbox because it’s a great stash-busting project.

Crafted using three strands of aran or worsted weight yarns, the basket works up quickly while maintaining a solid frame. Ideal for beginners, not only does the mini basket pattern teach basic crochet stitches, but it also allows crocheters to experiment with different color combinations. Make it colorful with your leftover yarns or go with a carefully thought colorway that will match your home decor. The versatility of this project makes it perfect for holding one’s personal items or decorating a space.
