A beautiful crochet basket with rainbow colors
This is a fantastic combination, as the coil adds strength to the basket as you crochet over the coil. You have the option of using cotton coil or T-shirt yarn or even rope with this creative and beautiful pattern by designer Cintia of My Poppet Makes.
Not only is this a free pattern but you will find a very helpful photo tutorial for the crochet-over-coil stitch — which is easy to pick up — as well as a guide to suggested yarns to get the beautiful gradient rainbow effect. Of course, as with any crochet project, you can use your imagination and creativity to come up with your own color schemes or even to use up some leftover yarn.
