Japanese Crochet Patterns
Thanks to Ravelry, I found some free japanese patterns on a site someone posted about. I found her project on ravelry here. She has already made several projects from the japanese site. I like to try most of the crochet patterns there...some of it are just small projects, but there are a few crochet summer tops too.
Here's one project I just made, its the same mini basket, but this one turned out smaller (probably big enough for coins, buttons or beads). I used some of the Catania cotton I got from a swap with Pearlin, and a 5/0 (3mm) size Tulip hook.
If made with yarn and bigger hook, the basket would be good for holding jewelry or hair accessories.
