Stash Basket

This crochet pattern for a basket for your stash is a great idea. 

It's generously sized and very easy to make. 

The pattern is available free from Purl Bee and uses worsted weight yarn.  I used aran weight yarn from my stash.  I wasn't sure if I would have enough of one colour to finish the basket so I used Rowan aran in Blood for the base and Stylecraft aran in cranberry for the sides and handles.  I used approximately 300 metres of yarn for the whole basket.   

Very useful and a great way to use up bits and pieces - it would also look good striped.
