I finished this yarn basket last night. It's crocheted with 1 strand Bernat Berella 4 and 1 strand Patons Divine. I should of included another strand of the Berella to make it stronger. I used an "L" hook. I got this idea from a young lady in my crochet group - her name is Lu - she crocheted some nice looking bowls for display.
A note about the Patons Divine yarn - I don't like it much. It has hairs through it that looks like dog hair and old lady grey hair. (The label says it's mohair.)
