Cute Critters, hanging baskets to keep the kids tidy

I know how difficult it is to contain your child’s favourite possessions and encourage them to put them away.  I designed these character to baskets to make tidy-up time fun!

The baskets are worked flat using a simple mesh stitch, I used Wendy Supreme Cotton Chunky which is incredibly strong and comes in a range of fun colours.

You can find the pattern for these baskets inside issue 90 of Let’s Knit Magazine.

Squeaky Clean Bath time Fun

Bath time will be so much more fun with this cute pair of knitted wash mittens.

Featured in issue 135 of Simply Knitting magazine, these two were knitted using Rico Design, Essential Cotton DK.  The yarn really did a great job of keeping its shape when wet and they will wash nicely in the washing machine.

I am sure you could adapt the pattern to make other bath time pals, I would love to see what you come up with.
