Mulberry Plarn Gift Basket

Posted on February 4, 2018

I crocheted a gift basket using recycled white plastic bags cut into plarn for an upcoming library fundraiser. I wanted to color match the basket with a few cloths in the gift basket. So I used the same mulberry cotton yarn for the stripe on the basket as I did when I crocheted the cloths.


Here is the free plarn basket pattern which I used to crochet the basket. I used double strands of regular cotton yarn to crochet the matching stripe.

My camera doesn’t really capture the matching colors but the items do look good together and I am hoping people will bid on this for auction for the library.

The cloths were crocheted using the same mulberry I love this yarn for the corded cloth and within the large mandala crocheted cloth. Here are the links for the crochet patterns for the cloths. Here is the mandala pattern I used and only crocheted to the part 1. The corded cloth pattern is one of my own creations and here is the link to the free pattern.

I added some additional items to complete the plarn gift basket. Above you can see the final gift basket I put together for the library fundraiser.
