Would you like to get organized? (Of course you would!) Storage baskets can help you to accomplish that goal easily. Another nice thing about them is that you can see right into them — which eliminates the “out of sight, out of mind” phenomenon that’s such a hindrance to visual people.
Would you like some unique ways to package up your gifts? Baskets can help with that too. Take a random assortment of candies, coffees, gourmet goodies, bath items, or baby products (etc!) and group them together in a basket. Voila — a gift basket.
Of course, you can vary your gift baskets to include fun holiday themes and color schemes: Christmas gift baskets, Easter baskets, Valentine candy baskets, Halloween candy baskets…
Whatever your reason for wanting to have some baskets on hand, it’s wonderful if you can crochet or knit your own; you can create just the basket you want, in exactly the size you want, for exactly the occasion you’re celebrating — or for everyday use.

Free Crochet Basket Patterns:
You can crochet this pretty basket and then fill it with Christmas cheer to give to a friend, family member or colleague. If you need ideas for what to put in it, don’t worry, I’ve included plenty of suggestions along with the free basket pattern.
If you aren’t working on Christmas projects at the moment, feel free to crochet this basket in different yarn colors — because it would work well for other occasions (and non-occasions) too. In springtime, it would make a fantastic Easter basket if you re-color it into spring-friendly pastels. It would also make an outstanding Mother’s Day gift basket; just choose Mom’s favorite color, or colors, for making it, and then fill it with beautiful things she would love.
Everyday Baskets to Crochet
These baskets could be decorated, or used, any which way you want them to be.
