Old CD Rolled-Edge Basket Pattern

recycled CD rolled-edge basket

Well, all you little crochetites, I’m flying to Florida tomorrow to visit relatives for Easter weekend. I didn’t think I’d get this done in time, but I couldn’t leave you without posting the pattern I promised. I haven’t gotten to pour over it as much as I’d like, so I hope there aren’t any errors. Let me know if you see anything that seems wrong. I’ll be giving it a once-over again next week when I get back.

A little kitschy, I know, but fun anyway. And if you’re quick, you might just be able to stitch one up, add a little handle, and have a cute, mini Easter basket.

Oh, and I am
I'm button crazy!
(as if you didn’t know already…) laugh

P.S. Steal this button, if you are button crazy, too. ;-)

    Love the basket pattern! I took that pattern, left off the beads, crocheted a tan lid using the same instructions as you put for the bottom of the basket, did a row of single crochet on the inside of the basket just under the rim to help support the lid, attached a little handle to the side, and finally crocheted a white chain with a little white square at the end of it and attached that to the lid as a tea bag tag . . . thus making a big cup of tea to hold tea bags. I can send a pic when I can take some (have to borrow a camera). I mentioned my idea on http://www.craftster.org and http://www.crochetme.com, and I have credited you with the majority of it on both. Also, on http://www.crochetme.com I posted a link to your pattern. Just thought I’d let you know. Thank you very much!! :)

    Oh, yes, I forgot to mention, the button crazy button may be stolen, if you like. ;)
