Pattern Description:

I love baskets. Viewing the hanging basket on Pinterest and enjoying the conversations about how to make a basket for the wall got me to thinking about creating a pattern.

I promptly made one from heavy handspun wool and it could be felted. The best part, it can be crocheted in less than two hours. Please comment on the pattern directions; it would be most helpful to me.
