A new year...a new stitch

Diamond crochet basket

While wandering through a thrift store a while back

I came across a giant ball of grey yarn for $4.

Way too hard to resist even though I 

was already in danger of being buried under my stash yarn.

But I had the perfect pattern in mind since

it not only eats yarn but also it uses a stitch which

I've never tried before.

And as a bonus it also stores some of my yarn stash.

It's from a free pattern by Esther Chandler on Ravelry

It did take me awhile to get the hang of the new (to me) stitch.
As you can see my lines on the basket aren't perfect
 but I'm still happy with it.
This video by moogly was really helpful to me.
It explains the  
front post triple crochet 2 together stitch.

 My cat Mew on the other hand wasn't particularly helpful
although she was nice company.

I love it! The design is really pretty. Your cat is beautiful too.

Thanks Star...I was thinking of making her a small bed since she seems to like it so much.
