- Work in rounds, using a combination of chains, single crochets, double crochets, and other stitches to create the lace pattern. You can use a pre-designed crochet pattern or create your own lace design.
- Continue crocheting until the basket reaches your desired height. You can make it tall and narrow for holding pens and pencils, or make it shorter and wider for storing small craft items or bathroom essentials.
