Crocheted baskets: handles or no handles?

Happy June!

Do you love stylish ways to tidy up your space? When I was in fourth grade, my class learned marketing by running our own pretend businesses. I created a store called “The Closet Room” and it was a home organizing store with an emphasis on stylish walk-in closets. So, my love for organization decor has been with me for a long time.

In preparation for updating the Amy Eve Jo shop, I’ve been crocheting baskets that are great for wrangling piles of loose items. Right now, I have some filled with my niece’s legos and, of course, my yarn. They’re flexible and bendy, rather than their more rigid classic woven counterparts. So, they’re a bit of a basket/bag hybrid.

Right now, they’re 8″ wide (diameter) and about 6″ tall, and more sizes will be available.

I’m having fun playing with colors that would be delightful in your home or work space and I’m excited for you to see them. Here are a couple looks:

Crocheted basket - beige, white, pink, and turquoise

I can’t decide. Handles or no handles?

Which one do you like better? The version with handles or no handles? I intend to offer both, but that won’t be possible for some colors. Please hit REPLY and let me know what you think about the handles debate. I’m eager to hear from you!
