Crochet Big & Fun Basket

It’s 2nd week of Yarntober (see last paragraph to see what is Yarntober), presenting Simply Crochet – Big and Fun Basket on Skillshare. You can take this class and thousands of other classes on Skillshare for only $0.99 for 3 months. Here the class link: skl.sh/2e4iuN0 . [announcing mode is done]

I saw these huge yarn balls called Bernat Blanket Big in Michael’s Store doing my regular shopping. Bought quite a few (a basket full and a little extra) of them, brought them home and made a couple baskets (still need to go back for more). The basket is big, fun and unique,  it’s also very easy and quick to make. Perfect for a beginner and for anyone at home, great for decorating while have very good storage build in (t’s a basket after all), your pets may ask for one or two too. After the first basket, I decided to make it into a Skillshare class and teach you how to make one.

[Whispering voice: I do not have regular shopping trips but more like yarns hoarding collection trip, my husband will totally verify me on this one since I made him went with me (I was saving money by double saving with his coupon). I told him Fall is here and Winter is coming (any Game of Thrones fans?), holiday seasons are one after the others, I just need to get some more yarns. (I see you nodding right there.) ]
As a result of yarns collection, I borrowed a few of his new plastic bins for storage. He was giving me a hard time/ motivation to get more patterns and Skillshare classes out (how much I love him for this and hate to admit he is a teasing genius at times), he suggested to make October into “Yarntober” – everything about yarn. I take on the challenge happily and play with all my yarns every minutes I could squeeze in my busy mom schedule. The result is, I succeed on delivering one class or one pattern per week in Yarntober. The best part is, I got this crochet basket class out on “I Love Yarn Day”, YESSS! Hurray for me. I got this taped a few days ago and did all the editing and voice over, then something went wrong and I had to redo most of them.

My two little girls are both making their own in different colors with their choices of yarns. My oldest loves this scarf when she modeled it for me, so we went to the store and let her pick out her own yarn to make one herself . Little sister saw it, sure wanted to join the crochet club and picked her own yarn too.
