A Tisket A Tasket has totally reversible patterning- different on each side but equally appealing on both. To me, one side looks like half and half textured Easter eggs, the other the baskets to put them in : ) Hence the A Tisket A Tasket title.
An Easy and fast knit, using just one super bulky (90 yd) hank of Malabrigo Rasta-- A great 'expanding knowledge' beginner piece or a quick 'gift knit' for the more experienced knitter. Knit in the round, bottom up, using very simple stitches -just knits, purls, YOs and p3tog.
The edge is designed to curl under to the first line of the stitch repeat- I considered an applied I cord edge but this worked out just as nicely.
You can leave it 'as knit' or block lightly (both looks shown in my pix)
As knit with 48 CO stitches, circumference measures 24" (61cm) by 10" (25cm)tall edges rolled under/11" unrolled, lightly blocked it is 27" by 11.5" rolled/12.5 unrolled.
Stitches are large and have plenty of give (stretches readily to 38" and returns to shape just fine).
Malabrigo Rasta Yarn highly recommended but not required- any super bulky that will get you gauge will work.
I think this would be lovely worked as a shoulderette/wrap/oversized cowl- It is very easy to add/subtract circumference, gauge is at an easy to figure 2 sts per inch and stitch multiple is 6, so each +/- multiple of 6 at CO will give an +/- 3" in circumfernce (unblocked)...Stitch pattern also looks nice with smaller yarn/needles --you need would need to work a swatch to find your gauge and figure stitches needed for your desired circumference.
2 stitches per inch in stockinette (or rev. St. st)
Have you made this pattern?

When/How did I get started?
I cannot remember, LOL it seems I have always been making something' craftsy' from the time I was allowed to handle some popsicle sticks and glue-- waaay back when!
