The Nestie Basket Bunch come as a trio of three perfect sizes: small, medium and large. A spike stitch across the rounds gives colour contrast and texture detail. Choose the colour combination that matches your home and enjoy making this easy project that gives you stunning results. With so many more of us working from home, at least for part of the week, our thoughts turn to how to make our environments reflect our own personal style and how to make them more cosy. What could be nicer than practical, yet stylish Nestie Baskets in your favourite colours.
