Who is ready for a new basket weaving kit? I’m so excited to share a simple and elegant project that you can craft for yourself or a special friend. The Skye Linen Basket is timeless, elegant, and useful! I love making these crochet baskets to keep around my home. They provide a beautiful backdrop to drop your keys, leave a running grocery list, or place your reading glasses for later.
This crochet basket kit comes with all the materials and tools you need to make one Skye Linen Basket. If you can’t stop at just one (trust me, this one is addictive!), you can always pick up another color of Flax & Twine Daytime Linen (DK Light Worsted Weight) in the shop.
This crochet basket project is well-suited for beginners—as with most Flax & Twine kits, I include a detailed video walking you through its construction from start to finish. Learning this technique will be a breeze! And the finished product looks refined with its delicate handles. Did we mention how great this basket looks hanging on the wall?
The finished basket measures 9” wide x 1.5” tall. Doesn’t this set of Stone, Blush, and Rust baskets look beautiful stacked on top of one another? The size is perfect for tossing a few items and curb the clutter on your vanity or nightstand.
Check out the Skye Linen Basket Kit in my shop! T:
:: 6 yds 7/32" cotton rope
:: 1 skein Flax & Twine Daytime Linen DK Weight (123 yds)
:: US7/4.5mm crochet hook
:: 4 stitch markers
:: Darning needle
:: Skye Linen Basket Pattern with step-by-step video
The Flax & Twine Daytime Linen now comes in 7 gorgeous colors: Stone, Ivory, Blush, Fawn, Rust, Onyx, and our newest color, Spruce!
This rich hue is perfect for fall—I love the depth of contrast it shows against the coiled rope base. Speaking of rope… if you’ve ever fussed with raffia or other messy materials to make a coiled basket, you’ll love working with easy-to-handle rope!
How will you use your Skye Basket? I can’t wait to see your crochet basket creations!
