These wooden basket bases are designed to speed up your crochet and cut out that awkward first stage of creating the flat base. We love them as they mean that you can dive straight in to crocheting the bit you actually see! And you are guaranteed that your baskets will sit flat!
The bases are made from unvarnished, 3mm birch ply from a sustainable source. The holes in the base are 8mm in diameter and we recommend you use a 5mm hook to attach the first round and then move up to the size recommended for your chosen yarn.
You could make your baskets out of loads of different yarn and cord: t-shirt yarn, macrame cord, super chunky yarns or several thinner strands worked together or even our super squishy Cotton Tube Yarn (as seen in the pics).
The bases come in five different sizes (10cm, 12cm, 15cm, 18cm and 20cm) meaning you can make everything from pen pots to plant pots, baskets to buckets!
Don't forget to send us pics of you creations as we love to see how you have used our bits and bobs out in the real world to make your bespoke creations!
We will be adding other shapes and sizes to our collection of bases so if you have something in mind that we don't currently have, give us a shout and we will see what we can do!
Each basket base is handmade to order so please allow 3-5 days for dispatch.
