Over the past few years, Berber style has exploded in popularity and is loved by interior designers and magazines for its subtle bohemian style. The Berbers are an ethnic tribal group from North Africa, who have a beautiful artisanal style of rug making. They often use graphic diamond shapes in their patterns, along with tassels with a special looping technique. This simple crochet basket has been inspired by their design, and sits perfectly in a modern home.
Ideal if you are a beginner at crochet, as it only uses a few stitches, and once crocheted, this design is then cleverly stiffened. The finishing Berber style touches include oversized tassels and additional diamond stitching. Plus, if you are feeling super adventurous, there is a bonus section which tells you how you can line your new basket.
Basket size when stiffened: 25cm diameter (outside edges)/ 23cm (inside edge) x 15cm height
