    I don’t know where I can find t-shirt yarn in Australia, would it be possible to use something else?.

    Hi,
    I love the rectangular baskets and have started making the larger one. I’ve only been crocheting a few months but can do the basics. I thought I was doing ok with the basket but have completed row six of the upper part and mine is really wonky! The sides are kind of flopping outwards and curled down and not nice and straight like yours. The stitches seem snug and I used Premier t shirt yarn. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? I’m determined to get it right! Thanks so much!

      Hi Susan 🙂 Perhaps using a smaller hook size will keep the fabric more rigid.
