If you follow me on Instagram you might know we got a kitty! Her name is Cow and we all LOVE her. Of course in normal cat fashion we bought her all kinds of fancy toys and you know what she plays with? Pipe cleaners she found in the Squid’s room, lol. Anyway she leaves her toys all over the place so I wanted to make her a cute little basket to put them in. I think she approves and I swear to you she put a toy in it the other night. 

Of course you don’t have to use your Dalia Basket for cat toys. It’s great for holding yarn, WIPs, washcloths in the bathroom…someone on Instagram said it would make a cute planter and I totally agree! 

I loved using Dishie Twist from We crochet for this project. Dishie is a worsted weight 100% cotton yarn. It’s actually the second time I’ve used Dishie and the the other project was a basket too. The Twist colorways add a great texture and I thought the neutral colors were perfect for our house. For this project you’ll hold the yarn double for a nice sturdy basket. Cow has already beat it up a bit (she also likes to sit in it) and it still looks great! You can find Dishie Twist HERE on We Crochet’s website.

Notes

This basket is made holding 2 strands of yarn together from the bottom up starting with the increases for the bottom. Colorwork is added to the body. When changing color do not fasten off. Carry the old color and work over it with the new color to hide the floats. Spike stitches in the odd rounds do a good job hiding any contrasting color from peeking through.

Gauge 

Gauge isn’t critical to this project. The bottom of the basket should measure 4“ across after round 8.
