Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 EVERYONE NEEDS one of these.......
This was my 2nd basket purchase! Got the 1st I just noted about 2 yr back via my previous rating! LOL I can't say enough GOOD about this purchase! When they had that OUTRGEOUS deal over the weekend on LLB sale items...I thought I was to buy out the whole place! LOL OK......then I opted to get my 2nd basket! Tho the color selection was not what I hoped for....I ended up w/the gray basket color! WOW! That didn't do justice on the site for it! I was VERY PLEASANTLY SHOCKED when I got it and EVEN MUCH FASTER then it said I would get it! Got it w/my reg. order ! I use this for my knitting and put my yarn in there! It does NOT snag the yarn as MANY baskets do! I can put my whole project in this and KNOW it's in GOOD hands from NOT getting snagged upon! Something EVERY KNITTER WANTS!!!! Who wants to put all that work in to an item and find it ALL Completely snagged ??? I recommend this to EVERYONE ! The chenille is SUPER SOFT! NOTHING like it! It's a NICE LARGE BASKET considering it's ONLY 12 INCHES! I have NOT a complaint about this purchase! AND I Will probably get Another! THANKS LLB!!!!

by Crazy4LLBEAN Chenille Basket - so happy I purchased - BEAUTIFU!
I kept looking at these Chenille Baskets - and thought they looked nice - but was skeptical that when it arrived - would not meet my expectations. They didn't meet it - they went over and beyond it! I absolutely love my new basket - I purchased the blue marled 12 inch. I do not think you would need a bigger basket (they do have a bigger one for sale) as this size would be great for just about anything from magazines to crafts. Right now I will use as a magazine holder - but the great thing is - you can change what you put in it at any time. I love unusual house decor - this basket fits right in! Would make a great gift too! They come flat - collapsed - so you will need to somewhat form/shape the basket when you remove from the packaging. I am thrilled with my basket - another great LL BEAN purchase!

Medium shades of blues and greens. Soft to the touch, but holds its shape. I use it to collect the things I need while sitting in my favorite chair. Love it!

This basket is cuter then I thought it would be. It is roomy, soft, and the colors are as pictured. I'm very pleased with my purchase and plan to use it for my knitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UpNorthLife Sturdy and attractive!
I ordered two of these--am using one to keep a quilting project organized and the other for magazines, which tend to over-run my coffee table. I like that I can move them around easily and they help keep the room looking neat/tidy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElizaAnne Very Pretty Basket
I purchased this 12 " basket for a bathroom I had just redecorated. I'll be storing guest towels and sundries in it. The basket looks just like its photograph on LL Bean's website. It's a soft, cushy fabric, has an array of lovely colors, and I've no doubt will look very nice where I've chosen to place it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pullmanvolunteer Beautiful Basket sits next to my rocker...
I love this braided chenille basket and have it sitting next to my rocker storing yarn and other crochet and handwork supplies. The quality is excellent and the color is perfect. I actually decided to purchase the basket in order to check out the color and quality before I made the decision to purchase the larger area rug. I have decided to go ahead with the rug purchase. Thank you L.L.Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SierraSunset Nice color but too "floppy"
I bought this 16" basket to hold extra rolled up towels in my guest bath. I do like the colors, but the basket wasn't firm enough to hold the towels without the sides of the basket flopping inward, so the towels just fell over. Unfortunately I had to return this. I guess I will have to look for a firmer woven basket instead. The basket may work fine for your application but just be forewarned that it doesn't sit up straight like in the photo. It is braided rug material and is soft.
