Granny Square Mini Basket

They take a little time to assemble but are really fun to make, you can use any color combination that you like and move them around your house. I have already found many uses for them: to gather my yarn and crochet hooks when I’m working on a project, to put my most treasured nail polish bottles and jewelry or just to hide away the little bits and pieces that are frequently scattered in my home. I hope you will like them!

You will need:

– cotton yarn (in three different colors for me, but you can use as many as you wish)

– a crochet hook that matches your yarn size (a 3.0mm or D crochet hook in my case)

– a piece of fabric

– scissors

– thread and needle
