Enjoying summer = enjoying cherries. Absolutely, no summer without cherries for me.
Deep red, tasty, delicious, fresh cherries, we all love them here. We pick them ourselves, straight from the trees, in Limburg, where my parents-in-law live a happy life with their garden full of nature’s best treats in every season.
So I decided to embellish a fruit basket, to celebrate summer ! I wanted lots of colours, and the Scheepjes Bloom cotton yarn is a wonderfull option for this design : a wonderfull colour selection to choose from, the most happy colours, the yarn has great natural stretch in it (so it provides a wonderfull fit for the basket cover), it is strong, and very easy to work with.
I am writing down the pattern right now, and I will have it ready by next week, I hope. It will be released as a FREE crochet pattern, and the great part : the pattern is very easy to adjust to all kinds of basket sizes. So stay tuned and make sure to check the blog next week !
Design : Bloom fruit basket – Annelies Baes
Yarn : Scheepjes Bloom, I used all different colours (about half a skein of each colour), and 1 full skein of cherry red.
Fruit basket : I received my fruit basket from my parents-in-law, it has been used for many and many years. But I have seen similar new baskets in home decoration shops and gardening shops.
