How bazaar – Embellishment project from issue 86

Simply Crochet issue 86 basket

This vibrant design bursts over the basket lip and pours down the diamond motifs before dripping to the floor through the beaded fringing. Now that’s awash with colour! You can adapt the sizing of this embellishment to suit any basket size – although of course a particularly large one would need additional yarn quantities to those listed in the magazine.



To hook up this fantastic pattern, you’ll need:

Paintbox Yarns Metallic DK (55% cotton, 45% polyamide, 50g/120m) in Blue Hawaii (08), Tequila Sunrise (09), Sazerac (11), Sangria (10) and Sea Breeze (07)

A 3.5mm (US E/4) hook

A basket (ours is 120cm in circumference)

Felted or wooden beads, 2cm
