A beautiful square napkin basket is such a help at family gatherings, and is a delight when it coordinates with your seaside or farmhouse decor. It’s the perfect compliment to the Seaside Reflections Placemats… Table Runner… Mug Rug… & Round Basket, as they all use the same stitches. A change of color and the square napkin basket can easily be made to match a holiday like Christmas or Thanksgiving.
I sometimes use affiliate links in my posts. This won’t cost you anything, but will help offset the cost of yarn and other supplies needed, so that I can continue bringing you crochet patterns and craft ideas. Thank you so much for your support.
