I don’t think I’ve ever talked about it in my newsletters, but I love Ikea! I love looking at the website, flipping through the catalog, and walking through the store. I spend hours in there everytime I go.
Last time I was there, I saw these baskets that they describe as being “handwoven.” After studying them for a few minutes, they sure looked like they were crochet to me. Single crochet! Each basket is “one of a kind,” made from 100% polypropylene, and machine-washable. There were square baskets, round baskets, door-mounted storage, toiletry bags, and a drawer storage container with divided compartments.
These containers all look like they could be easily made by using a kitchen cotton or a crochet nylon. I don’t think a pattern would be needed, but for those of us who might want patterns, here are a few*:
