If you love practical crochet projects, you will love these sturdy crochet baskets with handles. They are perfect size to store store toys, to organize baby clothes, or to keep diaper change essentials handy yet concealed. The largest is big enough to hold a bunch of bananas and a couple of apples and oranges at the same time. A catch-all by the front door; guest bedroom welcome baskets; seasonal potpourri; a rock collection display; belt or tie organization; or, my favorite use, work in progress storage. Whatever you decide to put in them, these highly functional crochet baskets were designed to be used and to fall in love with.
Keep them for yourself or gift them to someone you care about. Made with widely available Sugar ‘n Cream Cotton and Cotton & Polyester clothesline, these stackable crochet baskets make a wonderful handmade gift that is as economical as it is useful.

Sturdiness and durability of these crochet baskets are the result of a specific technique used to make them: coiled crochet. Even if you have never heard of coiled crochet before, worry not.
