work in progress: polka dot basket

A new idea popped up in my mind. A lovely idea.
I started working on a cute crochet basket speckled with polka dots.

Polka dots are made of bobbles in a contrast colour.

Bobbles are nice and fluffy both on the outside and on the inside.

Basket base is quite stiff and helps the basket keep its shape.

Tapestry crochet inspired sides make the sides stand nice and upright, and the reinforcing edge adds a little chubbiness to the basket because it curls inwards just a little bit.

I adore this project and hope to have a pattern for you soon! Until then, have a look at what’s new in my shop and don’t forget to keep in touch on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or right here by subscribing to the JaKiGu blog.

custom order: a set of crochet picture frames

Once again, I got approached by someone who saw my work online. She asked whether I’d be willing to create a custom order, and when it was clear I will comfortably be able to meet the deadline, I agreed.

By the way, I am beginning to like the way people find me. It seems so random, but obviously my crochet patterns and bobbin lace jewelry must pop up in searches somewhere. It’s really cool.

Here’s the colour scheme the client chose for her daughter’s nursery. I quite like it!

Oh, and it you’d like to make a set of these cute frames with a 2-inch inside diameter, a PDF pattern is available through my store.
