Black Cat Basket
This cute fuzzy basket has all chances to become your home decor favorite on Halloween eve and beyond. You can use it for trick-and-treating, and then for any small storage including leftover yarn and crochet projects.
The basket is reinforced with a cut plastic bottle or glass jar for sturdiness, which makes it a meaningful upcycling project. You can re-use an old cardboard box, packaging wire and toy stuffing, too. Let all the family participate to help you crafting and have fun!
The body is worked in spiral rounds of single crochet, from faux fur yarn lined with double-stranded wool. Head and shoulders are stitched to body on one side, working as a movable lid.
The pattern includes detailed written instructions and step-by step photo tutorial. You will also need some scraps of a contrasting yellow or orange color yarn for the eyes.
