I purchased a couple of balls of T-shirt yarn on a recent visit to my mom in George, since it was so much cheaper than the equivalent in Cape Town wool shops.  At first I couldn’t decide what to do with it, but then I settled on making some storage baskets using the pattern I had used for my string crochet baskets.  The process was pretty quick and relatively simple, although it was quite hard on my hands!  You can follow the instructions outlined here, but using a 8-10mm crochet hook, and keeping a relatively loose tension.  You can use single or double crochet stitches.

The baskets also come with Kevin’s kitty stamp of approval.

  1. Definitely going to give this a try. Looks easy enough for a DIY newbie like myself. Thanks for a wonderful blog! I really had no interest in DIY and you’ve inspired me and brought out my creative side, so a BIG thank you!
