Sunflower basket

Updated: Aug 3



This sunflower basket can be a great project bag. Well, I mean smaller projects. Or you can use it as gift bag. Fill it up with sweets and small toys for a kid. Or gift it to your friend and put her favorite creams/soaps or anything that fits into this basket :) You can put a piece of cardboard into the bottom of the basket.


I would recommend this pattern to crocheters with all crochet skill as making her is so easy.

Even a beginner crocheter can make it, however I used two advanced stitches. The puff stitch and the bobble stitch. But you can find several photo and video tutorials on Pinterest or YouTube. The doll behind the basket is Heather Hippie. I made her on a summer when the festival season was in full swing. You can purchase her pattern in my Etsy and Ravelry Shop.
