Free Crochet Pattern...Modern Nesting Baskets!



The Modern Nesting Baskets are fun, colorful, and super fun to make.  Clean lines and easy stitches are the perfect solution for organizing and all of the little things that seem to make their way everywhere (at least for me!)  The basket set includes three sizes (small, medium, and large).



Need a little help? There's a full video tutorial below for each basket too!
