Bernat Blanket Stash Baskets

Stitch and stash with these beautiful Bernat Blanket Stash Baskets. They'’re ideal for the beginning knitter or a crochet expert, as well as anyone looking for some creative solutions to limited space. At home, a college dorm, or in the office, there really are no limits to where these unique baskets can be used!

Use a gauge of 9 sc and 10 rows (4") to crochet a basket that measures either 10-1/2" in diameter by 12" high and/or 13-1/2" in diameter x 14" high. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
