Hanging Cylinder Basket – Free Crochet Pattern

For 2013 my New Years resolution was to get organized. Can’t say I’ve fully reached my goal…BUT I still have two more months! Lol. I originally designed this hanging cylinder basket to hold eyeliners and lipgloss in my bathroom so I don’t have to dig through my makeup case to find them. What I found is that they are WAY more useful than just as makeup holders. Using those newfangled hanging strips, I attached one to the lamppost next to the living room couch. They are holding my scissors, a nail file, and a few pens…basically everything on my end table I didn’t want my toddler getting into. Another great thing about these little baskets is they are the perfect stash buster project, since they use very little yarn. They also work up nice and quick, less than an hour. Can you say instant gratification!?

Edited to add: Now includes crochet chart!
