New Pattern Now Available -- "Valentine Basket in Puffs"

"Valentine Basket in Puffs"


This little basket was inspired while I was making my newest cocoon and hat set where I was using crochet puff stitches in the creation!  I had some leftover pink yarn (#4 weight) and thought I would see if I could use the puff stitch in a little basket.  The end result is pictured here.  I did the larger one with an H hook and the smaller one with a G Hook.  It will be so cute to fill these with Valentine treasures and candies!!!
