"The large size of this tote makes it perfect for carrying a wide range of items, from shopping to swim towels. This bag is made up of over one hundred plastic shopping bags. Core material (also made of plastic bags) is added every three rounds to increase durability and add rigidity to the tote. This pattern is relatively simple, the only stitches you need to know are single crochet and slip stitch. You will also need to know how to work in the round."
This Ombre Basket Free Crochet Pattern is great to make a modern basket to organize your items. You can store your craft items, your coffee pods, your kid’s toys etc. The pattern is easy to make. You can use three different colors of yarns to create gradient effect. One trick you can make them more sturdy is to starch them. You can find a way to hold them up and spray with starch water and let sit. This firms them up and makes then sturdy. And if it wears out you can always do it again! Happy crocheting.

"Carry all of your essential items, create ease in shopping or take a trip to the beach with this gorgeous gingham crochet tote. Worked in two panels and seamed, this project is straight forward and has a lovely finish. This pattern is written in US terms. My swatch of 10 sc x 10 rows is approximately 2 ¼” by 2 ¼”. Height - Approximately 15 inches Width - Approximately 13 inches Handle - Approximately 13 inches high from tote to mid point on handle. I used approximately 3/4 of a skein of each color. Any medium(4) weight you prefer to use is fine, you do not have to use the colors I did. I used acrylic yarn, but you can use cotton if you prefer. Please keep in mind that this can change the dimensions of the bag. You can line this bag if you prefer, I decided not to."
