I found this roll in the good old Dollar Tree Store! I used a size K crochet hook and began crocheting with a circle as when you make doilies. When I got the size I wanted for the bottom, I stopped adding stitches and just continued the rows going around until the sides were the depth I wanted.
|Twine and Needle size K|
And this is the result! I just love it! Who knew twine could be so pretty! I am going to try it with the finer macrame cord next time but this worked up so quickly. It was a little coarse on the hands though. And when I finished it I had to trim off some fly-away "hairs"-ha!
1. The basket was all stitched in single crochet stitches.
2. I increased by crocheting 2 stitches in each row every chain stitch around
until I had the desired size for the base like you would when making a coaster.
3. Then I crocheted without adding stitches for 8 rows until the depth was the desired size to hold small objects, candy, or even dried flowers.
4. Next, I crocheted 2 rows of single Crochet from side to side to make the handle.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this project and that it inspires you to make some baskets!
Thanks for coming and do come again soon!
