Beehive Basket

By Liz Barraclough

Beehive Basket

Build a beehive! Made in a Cotton and Jute blend yarn that is crocheted around rope and attached to a wooden base, the sturdy, stable basket is practical and easy to carry thanks to its clever tapered shape. Fill it with blankets or keep it by the sofa to store yarn and haberdashery.
