I love crocheting kitchen accessories that I will actually use or need.

A basket for holding bread on the table during lunch and dinner was one of those things.

Don’t get me wrong, I do have a few bowls and containers that I can use for bread, but to be honest, they’re kind of ugly and I couldn’t stand them anymore.

That’s why I finally got some cotton rope that I had in my stash and started thinking about how to crochet a cute and simple crochet basket.

After making the Hexagon Trivets using the same cotton rope yarn, I knew I wanted to make a matching basket with the same colors inspired by honeycombs and bees.

That’s why I started with the same hexagon base and the same knit stitch pattern. To add an interesting twist to it, I used two colors to make a nice color block design.

Moreover, the cotton rope and the folded sides make this basket solid and sturdy!

The result is very simple and elegant, and it makes one more piece in my collection of honeycomb-, bee-, and hexagon-inspired patterns for the kitchen!
