Crochet Cat Basket Pattern

The Crochet Cat Basket storage pattern is a simple pattern than can be crocheted in an hour or two and is a great stash buster.

This is a little twist on a crochet storage basket that I thought would be cute for cat lovers. Use it for cat toys or kids craft items or bathroom storage!

The yarn is held double to make the basket sturdy.

The finished size is about 8 inches wide and 6 inches deep.

Materials used:

-10 mm crochet hook
-125 grams of Cozy Woolâ„¢ Yarn By Loops & Threads- held double in the colour of your choice (any chunky wool can be used in place here )
-Worsted Weight yarn for nose and whiskers in the colours of your choice
-Tapestry needle
-Scissors
