Boye Size N Aluminum Hook ($3.99) I was happy to see an aluminum hook for this project! I prefer aluminum to acrylic or plastic hooks because the yarn moves smoother as you make stitches.
Crocheting Quote Bookmark ($2) Made of sturdy cardstock with a crafty quote this bookmark is the perfect size to slip into your latest read or keep your place in a pattern book!
Beautiful things come together one stitch at a time.
Pattern Booklet ($5) This is the pattern book. Overall it’s well-written, but I really wish there was an image or sketch included of what the finished product is supposed to look like. I don’t crochet as much as I used to, so it would have been helpful to have a visual reference.
While the pattern is definitely good for a beginner, it assumes you already know how to do a half double crochet, single crochet, and slip stitch.
It would have been nice to have a complete stitch guide, but I do like that the defined the special stitches though!
They also could have explained how to create an adjustable ring, but I was quickly able to find a video tutorial to help me remember the steps!
One Skein Of Hooked Zpagetti ($10.25) I’ve been really curious about t-shirt yarn, so I was thrilled to get that as the yarn for this project. I also think it’s really reasonably priced. This color is a semi-solid or tonal deep blue. It’s t-shirt soft and works up quickly with the N hook (10 mm).
One Skein Of Hooked Zpagetti Mini ($0.99) I love this yarn! The mini had a slightly stiffer texture than the main color, but was so vibrantly colored!
Overall, this was a really quick project! I crocheted the basket in roughly 8 hours spread over a couple of evenings. You could definitely finish it in a day if you wanted to and had a day to devote to crocheting. That’d be living the dream!
