work in progress: coiled crochet basket

I am so in love with the basket I am working on right now – I just had to share a snapshot with you!

Worked similarly as traditional coiled baskets, this one is crocheted with cotton and contrast acrylic over jute coil. What an amazing structural strength that jute lends to this basket! If I described my round and square jute and cotton baskets as sturdy, and the lace baskets as firm, this one can only be described as “solid.” Honestly, it feels more like wicker than fabric. On my quest to design the most durable, functional basket, this one might be a dream come true.

What do you think? How would you describe your ideal crochet basket? Is a basket’s ability to keep its shape an important attribute of a crochet design? Would you consider giving a coiled crochet basket a try? Should I start working on a pattern?
