We get inspired by so many things around us. This time, it was the onions in my kitchen that got me hooking this basket.
For the longest time it felt like the onions were giving me a side eye protesting about how I’ve been heaping them haphazardly in a corner, and every time I would say ‘ok, I’ll make something nice and cozy to put them in’.
However, by the time I was done, it just didn’t feel right to name it ‘onion basket’. So, it was named lollipop because the colorful swirl of the yarn combined with the Bobble stitch reminds me of just that- a Lollipop.
This is a very easy pattern any beginner can make using a combination of basic stitches and the Bobble stitch (one of my all-time favorite stitches). This pattern was made with the Bobble stitch as well, though it’s slightly different. For extra thickness, I made the basket holding two strands of yarn.
