This customizable crochet basket uses a technique similar to thrumming. Rectangular with rounded corners, Custom Rope Basket by Esther Chandler is made using up a single skein for a 42cm wide version. The size of the basket can be easily altered so you can get a storage basket that it would fit any space or object you need to store.
You will need:
Length of rope (mine was 38m in length and 6mm diameter, for a 22x42x17cm basket)
Stash yarn (I used 310m of Patons 100% cotton 4ply in a cream colourway)
Size 5.00mm crochet hook (use a metal hook if possible as the work is quite stiff), or larger if your rope is thicker.
