When I designed the Mini Plant Basket Crochet Pattern, I not only wanted it to hang but also to be able to be used as a non-hanging basket. The back of the basket/bottom is flat so it can hang or sit on a desk top or table.This post may contain affiliate links, meaning I may receive a small commission from purchases made at no extra cost to you.
