After spending so much time crocheting for others, I thought it was time to crochet something that I could use. I have a lot of nail polish and little bottles on my vanity and have been meaning to pick up something to help keep them organized. So, I thought….why not make a perfect size basket for them, and came up with the Niah Vanity Basket.

The Niah Vanity Basket use double stranded cotton to give stability and structure.
The pattern is worked in the round along both sides of the starting chain.
The Niah Vanity Basket looks cute in solid colour or using a second colour for the last round. It’s a perfect fit for nail polish, make-up brusher or other small items.
