Blue Mist Basket

I worked up this basket with bobble stitches and post stitches, using Vanna's Choice yarn in Denim Mist. It's the perfect size for filling up with candy or to place a Bath & Body candle. I think changing up the color for specific holidays will make this a great go-to project to add a little something extra to a gift!!!
