What a beautiful basket and it is easy to crochet. This precious Victorian Heirloom Basket will help with storage needs whether it’s in the loo, bedroom or any place you need a bit of fancy storage! It is super fast to crochet as you will be holding two strands of yarn, and a large crochet hook. The Pint Mason Jar cover is free on this website, and you can pick up the Quart Mason Jar cover on Ravelry.

The “Victorian Heirloom Basket” features a drop over lace edge that has a crochet chart for you to follow. You will then switch to a smaller crochet hook and use only one strand of yarn, and yes the lace is easy too!
This oval basket is lovely and is the first crochet pattern to be released in the “Victorian Heirloom Bath Set”. My testers have fallen in love with this piece and they have already crocheted a few baskets for gift giving!
The Jar Covers are a lovely accompaniment to the basket.
A New Color Combination
My daughter fell in love with this set, and requested that it be made in a yellow, gray, cream color combination. It’s a lovely color choice and will match her bedroom set.
I will use Royal blue and white next time I make the “Victorian Heirloom Bath Set”. What color combinations would you use when making this basket? If you make this basket or any other piece in this set, maybe you could drop by my facebook group and share a picture or two? Here’s the Link
