One Skein T-Shirt Yarn Basket - Free Crochet Pattern by Nicki's Homemade Crafts

I recently went to Michaels and saw one skein of Loops & Threads T-Shirt yarn on sale, so I grabbed it and new right away what I wanted to do with it. I needed a storage basket for my guest bathroom and it was perfect for it.

I especially liked how easy and fast I was able to make this basket. I only used 2 different stitches, single crochet for the bottom of the basket and half double crochet (in the 3rd loop) for the side of the basket.
