Spring baskets – free pattern

The tulip stitch is one of my favorite crochet stitch and not just my ….. my mother is doing everything with it and these cute baskets are one of her first projects.

The desire for spring brought me and Lisa of CrochetRomance to realize the tutorial of these baskets.

Lisa is a crafter that I met at the beginning of my adventure on Etsy and since then I continue to follow her especially for her video tutorials not only about crochet but also knitting. I advise you to take a look at hers youtube channel ( link ), you will also find tutorials for left-handed people.

When Lisa proposed me this collaboration I was very happy and I immediately accepted. We have joined forces; so of these baskets you will not only find my written pattern but also the video tutorial of Lisa that you can find here for left-handed people and here for right-handed people.
