Handmade home accessories are one of my favorite kinds of crochet projects. Especially when you are working with bulky yarn – it works up really fast! If you need more storage (and I’m sure you do, because we all do, constantly!), it’s time to make yourself a stash basket. Chunky basket is a very easy project, which will be suitable for beginners.

All you need is thick yarn in your favorite color and big crochet hook. Working with thick yarn can require a bit of strength, but it’s very rewarding. Accessory like this one will come in handy in the craft room, bathroom, bedroom or wardrobe. You can keep all kinds of stuff inside, and it looks nice enough to showcase it on the shelf! Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
