This is the Magnificent Moss Basket. It is a free pattern on Craftsy. It is done in 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. The pattern comes in 8,10,12 and 14 inch Diameters.
This is my 10 inch basket. The pattern is diameter specific but height is your choice. As is the option to add different colors in the middle.
I also made it in the 8 inch and then a 6 inch. Once you do one basket changing the size to one that wasn't included isn't at all difficult.
The largest one took me about 4 hours and the smallest about 3.
Since moving in to the new house in February we still haven't finished with boxes or decorating. My guest room is still sporting a blow up bed and several brown, paper boxes.
This week we ordered up a couple of Murphy beds for the room. The boxes however still were a bit of an eyesore. My short term answer ( maybe long term ) was to make slip covers for them from Home Dec fabric ( on sale plus a cpn at Joanns ).
I purchase the entire bolt of 9 yards. I plan on making a couple of bed runners with it for when I have company and some 1 hour baskets for the shelves that come with the beds. That should hold my guests clothes and I won't need to get drawers for the room. The baskets will also keep me from filling the shelves with my junk.
I also took a class on Modern Hexies sponsored by the Quilt Guild of the Villages and taught by Linda Hungerford
It was a great day. I picked out solids in the same color as my box slip covers. I plan on finishing it for the quest room just not sure if it will be a pillow or a wall hanging. I'm waiting for it to talk to me before I do anything else.
I also worked on my Scrap Vortex and got a post card off to Canada for a postcard swap. Once I know it has been received I can post a picture. I also did a little work on quilt that I am making for the aunt of a friend who lost all of her quilts and afghans to a fire. That is now on the top of my to finish list.
To all of my US friends, please have a happy and safe 4th of July
