When I first met Red Heart Cordial, I thought it was the perfect cord for macramé. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it could be crocheted into such usable, durable, great-looking items. If you see it in the store it looks like a stiff ball of yarn. Like this…
When you crochet with it, it magically becomes perfect for all sorts of things. So I think of it as a “cord that you can either use for macramé knotting or for crochet”.
The designer, Julie King, has used pieces of leather for the handles, giving this crocheted basket a completely finished look. I am thinking of making it as a gift, but I think that when I make it, I will want to keep it for myself.
Here are some other ideas that are available as free patterns on redheart.com.
