Don't you think the best thing in Winter is to sit under a blanket in the evening, watching movies with your love and/or your kids? Curtains closed, candles lighted, fire burning. I love it.
My blankets are lying around most of the time, on or beside the couch. I thought a basket would be convenient. Because I was running out of white cotton yarn I wanted to order some and saw the bulky yarn used for crochet baskets was on sale, so I ordered some of that, too. Not really a stash buster (as told before my New Year's resolution is to get rid of at least half of the mountain of yarn that I have stored everywhere around the house), but I have to be honest: buying new yarn makes me so happy, haha!
What's so great about bulky yarn: projects are finished nice and fast! So hereby I present: The Blanket Basket!
Pattern: I made this pattern up myself
