Here is my latest crocheted recycled plastic bag basket. This basket uses mainly grey Walmart plastic bags and then I added stripes of red, white and blue “plarn” to decorate it with a patriotic theme.
I used an old plastic-coated clothes hanger for the handle. I cut a piece 19 inches long and put some curved ends on the hanger so I could attach it to the sides of my crocheted basket.
Once I had the hanger attached to the inside of the basket, I used a pliers to squeeze closed the curved hooks around the top edge to secure it to the basket.
Now for the free crochet pattern details for the basket.[…]
Here is my very thick front post crocheted hat. The hat is crocheted by working all front post double crochet stitches in the round. The result is a comfortable very heavy winter hat that will keep you warm.
You can add a few extra rounds to make a longer hat as this is one more of a helmet cap as shown. I have included changes for a smaller ladies or youth size in the free crochet pattern below.
