Moroccan Basket

By Tamara Kelly at MooglyBlog.com | February 10, 2016

I knew I wanted to make a basket, and I knew I wanted to use Lion Brand Heartland Thick & Quick… and when I started crocheting, the Moroccan Basket just flew off my hook!

The Moroccan Basket brings back one of my favorites – the Moroccan Tile Stitch – and pairs it with chunky yarn in a handy and attractive basket that works up fast! The basket is lined with another layer of crochet, making it even more useful and sturdy. And I think it looks better for it too!
