I decided it was time I get onboard with the t-shirt yarn trend and when I came across this pattern I knew I had to make this crochet basket for my sweet (well not always so sweet) Ivy. I followed the original instructions and cut my yarn (with Ivy's assistance) but opted to make my basket one solid color. I was originally concerned that it wouldn't be big enough for her (she's a voluptuous 12lbs) but it turned out perfectly. You could always increase the size of the circle by adding additional rounds before creating the sides of the basket.
I love the final result (and I think Ivy likes it too)!
