Used a baby blanket pattern to make an afghan for my sweet girl... Free pattern here - it works up really quickly, especially if you use two strands of yarn. Very, very simple pattern and lots of fun to make! #crochet
Crochet in Color: Lots of Free patterns, and I agree, I always go with the smallest hook when make baskets, bins, etc. as they aren't as useful if you have to shape them, imagine putting lots of magazines or something in them and the sides keep falling down, the only time I use a bigger hook is if slouchy is what the design calls for any way.
