Free Crochet Pattern Mara Basket

Free Crochet Pattern Mara Basket

Because I still had quite a bit of yarn left over from the crochet pattern of the Sturdy Basket, I made a slightly smaller basket with the leftover yarn. The crochet pattern of this smaller basket can be found below. This time I chose to finish the top with the crab stitch.

I’ve put a small plant in the basket in the photo, but it’s actually also a perfect basket to throw your keys in when you get home, or store other small items.

Dimensions: Diameter 11 cm, height 8 cm
