Crochet in Color: Lots of Free patterns. I always go with the smallest hook for baskets, bins, etc. More useful if you don't have to shape them. The only time I use a bigger hook is if slouchy is what the design calls for. Make Crocheted Baskets!
This free crochet afghan pattern is customizable, so you can use it to make a baby blanket, lap blanket or even a bedspread. Makes a great modern, gender-neutral baby shower gift idea or an afghan for the couch.
