Skill level: Beginner

Size: Finished basket should measure approximately 26 inches in circumference and 7 inches tall

If your piece is smaller than this, increase your hook size. If it is larger than this, decrease your hook size.

Special Stitch:
Puff Stitch: Yarn over, insert hook into st, yarn over, pull up a loop, (3 loops on hook) yarn over, insert hook into same st, pull up a loop (5 loops on hook), yarn over, insert hook into same st, pull up a loop (7 loops on hook) yarn over, pull through all 7 loops to create puff st.

Notes: This basket is worked in rounds, so it is essential to mark the beginning stitch of each round with a stitch marker. You will notice that the increases at the base of the basket are staggered. This is to keep the shape as round as possible.IMG_2953Ready? Here we go!

Base of the Basket:
Round 1: Hdc 10 in Mc. (10) (mark first st with st marker and move to first st of each row throughout the rest of the pattern to keep your place)Round 2: 2 hdc in each st around (20)

Round 8: ** hdc in first 3, 2hdc, hdc in next 3** Repeat around. (80)
The base of your basket should be approximately 7 ½ inches in diameter. If your work is “wavy” you can tug on it to shape it and flatten it. It will straighten out as you continue with the body of the basket.measureBody of the Basket:
