I wanted to make the 14 diameter but as I finished It was only 10. So I did something wrong. In the pattern whenit says 1 hdc in each of the next 2, 2 hdc in next.....I did 2 hdc separate then 2 hdc in the next stich and so forth like 1 hdc in next 11 then 2 in the next. WAS I supposed to do 2 hdc in all of them. whenit says SAME I guess I have a black in my mind. Please correct me as I want to make another one RIGHT. Thanks so much love this pattern. Lana Connelly

Don't know if you still need an answer:
What you did was correct. You are making a circle which becomes gradually bigger with each round. The problem might be that you crocheted tighter than it was done by this member. Although there is no need for a gauge checking, problems like this can appear and make it seem like you did something wrong like crocheting too tight or maybe even by simply using a thinner yarn.

Just found your basket pattern and want to make a few kits for family I know will love making them. Could you tell me real quick how much yarn I need to purchase (approximate-I realize there are different sizes)? The main color; then for each of the various colors. Anything you could do to get me a quick answer would be much appreciated...or tell me where I missed it in skimming through the pattern on my iPad before leaving for the day! Thank you. GrBo

Have you tried making this with Plarn? I have been asked by a hair saloon to make a basket out of plarn, for earth day, which is in April 2016. They saw plarn projects I had been making, and thought this basket would be a good idea ,

Please help! I am new at crochet and I have been using youtube videos this is my first printed directions. I want to make sure I am under standing correct. I will chain for my length but it says work to Rnd 13 whats that mean? Also, then for Rnd 1 I am doing 8 hdc, join to 1st st, ch1 (8). Does this mean I am doing 8hdc in the first ST then Ch1, then proceed to Rnd2. Then Rnd2 would be 2hbc in each st. I'm trying to understand. Thank you so much. looking forward to hearing from you.

This pattern is worked in the round, so there is no starting chain for length. I believe if you just follow the pattern step by step, you will be able to accomplish it! Good luck!

Quick question in the round for the first st do you mean 8 hdc in the round itself then attach it to the first stitch? I'm working on the biggest basket.

Hi Joy. I'm the one that was trying to talk to you on facebook. I was talking to you about making Magnificent moss basket, a different way. Anyway I think weaving the basket is the wrong word. More of a braid would look cool. OR making it some other way. I love the way it looks, and the colors. I really would like to make it or one that looks like it. It very nice. I just don crochet. I seen one today that was made of that rope type stuff thats in laundry bags as the string at the top to keep it closed. But it had no color and it was glued together. And I also seen one that was crocheted around some of the clear plastic / rubber hose. like you can buy from homedepot. Heres my E-mail address to get ahold of me. spalsbury_tammy@yahoo.com I put it on the message on facebook but i dont know if you got it or not. Thanks Tammy Spalsbury

When you say to use double strand, do you mean to actually put two strands of yarn together or is there yarn to buy that is already double strands? Sounds to me like you would have to use 2 skeins of yarn to have a double strand or rewind the whole skein to double one skein. Can you help please? I'm confused

What a great pattern! I've crocheted rag rugs for decades, so doing up a yarn basket was a change but so easy and REWARDING! Turn out in about 5-6 hours. Think I'll rip up an old sheet and make one with rag strips. I noted major difference in size from 8 to 10". One seems small while the other seems huge eventhough same yarn and tension. Also, with the 10", I bathed it in liquid starch and now have a firm sided, standup basket for bread loaves. LOVE IT!

In crocheting the bottom on a round or row, when you say to crochet so many hdc in the next so many stitches then 2 hdc in the same. . .I believe you mean: 1 hdc in each of the next 2 (or 3 or 4 or 5, etc depending on row) then 2 hdc in the next hdc.. Please clarify. . . thanks!

It will depend on what size you plan on making, but the largest size uses approx 7oz of worsted weight working with doubled stranded.

I downloaded a pattern on here, and I can't read it. I understand the abbreviations individually, but not when it is a long run on of abbreviations. The pattern I downloaded just jumps in with hdc which is a half double stitch...but it doesn't say how many chains to do at the beginning. You cant to a hdc without chain stitches. I love the way the pattern looks, and I would love to do it, but it all looks like hieroglyphs to me. Can you help my please?
When the pattern says, "Rnd 1: 8 hdc, join to 1st st, ch 1 (8)" I know what hdc means...rnd means round maybe (meaning the first circle?), and st is stitch and ch is chain....but what does it all mean together? Thanks so much!!

This is worked in the round, so the stitches are worked into the first chain of a ch2, or a magic circle.

The abbreviations list is at the beginning of the pattern to refer to if you have trouble with the common crochet abbreviations.

Joyful Yarns on craftsy.com
Joyful Yarns  August 3, 2014

The first line of the pattern instructs to ch3 and work in the last chain (I responded in error above). OR you can use a magic circle to work the stitches into.

Joyful Yarns on craftsy.com
Joyful Yarns  August 3, 2014

In Round 1 above, you will work 8 hdc into the last of the beginning ch3, OR in a magic circle. Then slip stitch join to the 1st hdc, then chain 1. Then you will proceed with Round 2.

The magic circle works the best and so much easier than a chain. Take the time to learn it and you'll use it all the time

Hi! The amount of yarn needed will vary depending on the size you choose to make. For the basket in the picture, I made the largest size and it took about 2/3 skein of RedHeart Super Saver for the ecru color. I would suggest 7-8 oz total of worsted weight/aran weight yarn for the largest size.

Moss stitch is the repeat pattern in the center rounds where you ch1 and hdc. The next round you will work the hdc into the ch1 sp from the previous round and ch1 to skip over the hdc from the previous round. If you have any further problems, please contact me here or at my Facebook page, and I can help you!

I downloaded the pattern and wonder what the * stands for in the pattern details? It starts at the Round 3 and I am just making sure it am doing all correct. On the hdc do we skip a stict or 2 or go strait in to the first available stitch? I was taught the hdc starts in the 3rd stitch over... is this right??

The * is the repeat, so you would repeat the instructions between the *'s.

This is worked in the round, so you dont necessarily follow the same rules for working in the 'x' st after making a turn chain like when working flat and turning the work. The chain in this pattern is part of the stitch pattern to create the texture.
