Crystal Light Container Basket – Free Crochet Pattern

Crystal Light Container Hanging Basket - Free Crochet Pattern

Just like many other crafty moms, I’m always looking for new ways to reuse and re-purpose items that might get thrown away. Crystal Light containers are very useful! The label is easy to remove, leaving a clear plastic container with a snap on lid. Use them to organize beads, paperclips, or other small items.

 



 

 


To help keep you organized I’ve got this free crochet pattern for a hanging basket that fits around the Crystal Light container perfectly. It’s just the right size for your pens, pencils, or crochet hooks. This would make a great stash busting project to use up your little scraps of yarn. If you would like to have a striped look as per the example in the photo then change colors on rounds 8, 12, 16, 22, 24. Working in the back loop only (BL) on rounds with color changes will keep the stripes from looking jagged. Happy hooking!
