Free Pattern: Tiny Basket
This little basket is about 3" in diameter on the inside, perfect for tiny things like buttons or change. I made it as a laundry basket for my makeup remover pads. It's just a little bigger than they are, so they stack up in there just right. And unlike the lingerie bag I was using, it stands up and looks cute on my counter.
Filled with a week's worth of makeup remover pads, this would be a perfect stocking-stuffer for a teenager or an adult!
2 strands cotton yarn (I used a Peaches and Cream green twist and Red Heart white)
5.5mm or 6mm hook (whichever is more comfortable for you)
Ch - chain
Dc - double crochet
Sl st - slip stitch
Sc - single crochet
