Happy November!
Well, I hope your November is happy thus far, being that we’re not that far into the month so far. I know that I’m skipping over the rest of the Fall season, but I love the imagery of Winter and the holidays therein. Like little red stockings dancing around a basket, that’s just cute to me. I’ve also been working on trees and hats with snowflakes on them… which you might know if you follow me on social media. It’s not my favorite time of the year, that’s Fall-o-Ween as I’ve explained previous, but I do love it. & I’m looking forward to it getting a little cooler, not cold, just cooler. 😀

This week’s design is ANOTHER basket. Are you sick of baskets yet? They’re one of my favorite things to make I’m always thinking of new designs and how I can update the basic shape to make it more interesting. I just like how cute they are while also being very useful (I keep my makeup in my anchor and tapestry heart baskets on my bathroom shelves, no joke). I do hope you like this week’s design.

You can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf of this pattern for $.50 in my Ravelry shop. It helps me to continue to make free patterns week after week.

Materials

GaugeRavelry link

  • 4″ = 17 scs x 14 rows

Terms/stitches used:

  • Magic circle
  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Sc2tog: single crochet 2 sts together

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st after the last st.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up in 3 sections: the base, the sides, and the handles.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Following the base, sc into the back loop only, until you get to the handles. At the end of the row, slip st into both loops of your 1st st, this will help to keep your seam straight.
  • Every stitch in this pattern is a single crochet. The directions for the sides portion (where the graphing is) will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many stitches to make.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is tan (Bernat Super Value in Honey), color B is red (Caron One Pound in Scarlet), and color C is cream (Caron One Pound in Off-White).

Finished product dimensions

  • Height: 5” (not including handles)
  • Diameter: 9.75” – 10”
  • Base diameter: 6.25”
