Hi again! How’s your Tuesday going? I’m doing well, currently delightfully caffeinated so I’m happy. 😀 I’ve also got a couple great patterns in the works and I’m so excited to share them with you! This week I wanted to return to another Easter inspired design, although you could definitely use this any time of year because carrots aren’t really just Easter designs, right?
I really do how you like this design, it’s a fun and quick basket and who couldn’t use more cute baskets full of candy, lipstick or pens around their home?
You can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf of this pattern in my Ravelry shop for $.50.
Materials:

Gauge:

  • 4″ = 16 scs x 16 rows

Terms/ stitches:

  • Magic circle
  • RS: right side (side that faces out)
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st from the last st.Ravelry link
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Following the base, sc into the back loop only.
  • If you don’t work this pattern in the back loop only, it might end up leaning. You can block the finished item to make it lean less.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parentheses means.
  • Color A is cream, color B is orange, and color C green.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.

Finished measurements:

  • Height: 5.75″ (sides), 6.5″ (handles pulled up)
  • Diameter: 7.25″ 
  • Base: 3.75″ in diameter

  • Following the ch 1, the first st is worked into the same st as join.

    This basket is too cute and a perfect size. It lends itself to endless series of themes. Have you thought about doing ones with more vegetables (i.e. radish, tomato, eggplant), or fruit (i,e. strawberry, plum, apple), or animals (cat [white cat on black or navy], turtle, dog) or even flowers (i.e. daisy, sunflower, poppy). I am getting your pattern on Ravelry. Thanks so much

      Thank you. <3 I have tons of ideas for patterns coming soon but there are only so many hours in the day! 😀 But I'll get 'em all written and released, it just might take a while.

      Hi!
      That pattern is fresh off my hook today and I’m still working out the details on it so it won’t be released for a little while. Keep any eye out, however, it is coming. 😀
