Love your pattern! I found the tip of the second eye a little tricky but it turned out wonderful. Thank you! Oh and I used Bernat Handicrafter off white cotton.
Please can you tell me what a good alternative to Cascade Yarns would be as I can't get it in England. Thank you.
Do you have Lion Brand thick and quick? That is a good alternative and you can use less strands to get gauge.
I haven't been able to find Lion Brand. I've got Rowan purelife which is a chunky. Would two strands sufficient? I tried three and it was really difficult.
You can definitely use that. Also if the two strands is enough to make gauge then that's perfect. :)
I'm having a problem with this project. I cannot find the preferred brand of yarn at any of my local stores and really don't want to order online. I bought some bulky weight wool as sugguested, but had a really hard time starting the project with a P hook and four strands of the yarn, so I used a Q hook instead. I'm only on the 7th round and the base of the basket is getting really big. I'm afraid this is turning into an epic failure. Any suggestions?
The stitches are going to be very tight when using the P hook. That gives it the ability to stand on its own without being filled. It's almost like working amigurumi on a really large scale. You want super tight stitches.
what is a majic adjustable loop? does that mean after I've done 8 hdc that I join the ends together then do 16 hdc (2 sts in each stc?)?
You might google it and find a tutorial for it or even a youtube video, but you first make a chain of four and then join it, and then do the 8 hdcs into it. Hope that helps :)
I have a video tutorial on my website that shows how to do a magic adjustable loop. :)
Thanks - I was able to find it and replicate it. Loving the pattern - it's going to be the perfect gift for my daughter who's a teacher!thanks
I love this pattern, it is so easy to work and although I didn't use the required yarn amounts my basket turned out quite well and my daughter loved it! Thanks you for the pattern.
That's fantastic! I'm so glad you like it. Thanks so much!
you are most welcome.
