Gratitude Grabber Basket

Gratitude Grabber Crochet Basket Pattern

I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about gratitude and looking at life with a more positive take.  Our last couple of years have been progressively more and more difficult, and to be honest, I’ve had a hard time keeping a positive attitude.  Which is where this awesome Gratitude Grabber project comes in!

This little basket is made to be filled with gratitude.  Every time something you’re truly grateful for happens, simply jot it on a small piece of paper and toss it in this basket.  Soon your basket will be overflowing, and you’ll probably be aware of more of the little amazing things that happen daily in life.

This free crochet basket pattern features worsted (4) weight yarn and size 5.5mm (I/9) crochet hook.  I used Red Heart Super Saver.
