2,99$/1 hour basket (to hide stuff)

I told you about my thrift store (it’s actually a Value Village) addiction. This time, I made a trip especially for yarn. I NEEDED a project, but we’re broke, so I told my boyfriend I’d make do with 4$. (Not that we only have 4$, but it was all I had in spare change)

I really wanted to try t-shirt yarn. I always crochet with very thin and very soft yarn and MAX 5.5mm hooks.

Anyways, I found a bag of t-shirt (it’s more of a swimsuit fabric) yarn for 2,99$. We went home, I made food for the week, did just enough stuff in the house to not feel guilty about sitting down and crochet and went on Pinterest.

I chained, and chained, made a row, and another, thought this would be soooo heavy as a scarf, and too stiff for a hat. Didn’t have enough for a rug, so I turned to a simple but very cute basket that doesn’t match any room in my house, but oh well.

Even those pictures of hers are getting better (reading your mind)

Honestly, if you are an intermediate crocheter, you won’t need a pattern for this, but if you are a beginner, here’s how it’s done.

Extra chunky yarn. Or t-shirt yarn. Or swimsuit yarn (it’s a thing now)

Crochet: 10mm (I used 8mm because I was to lazy to look for my 10 mm)

HDC 8 in Magic circle (I learned it from her!)

Round 1: 2HDC in each stich (16)

Round 2: [2HDC in same stitch (inc), 1 HDC], repeat (24)

Round 3: [2HDC in same stitch (inc), 2HDC], repeat (32)

Round 4: [2HDC in same stitch (inc), 3HDC], repeat (40)

We watched…Bojack Horseman!

Whaaaaaaaaaaaa? It’s so unlike you, Alexe.

Yeah, well, Aaron Paul.  (And I still can’t believe Will Arnett has such a deep voice!) Plus, both opening and credit themes are great.

No kidding, it’s very good, very well written, it’s a Netflix original, plus you can hear Lisa Kudrow in season 2! (Friends fanatic here! Look, I even have a mug. (two mugs))

Happy crochet (and TV) dear friends!
