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. While walking through Lowe's one afternoon I spied this awesome green jute and decided to give it a try. It's a simple pattern, easy to find materials and can be made from so many different fibers. 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Single and double crochet, decrease and crochet in the round. GAUGE One size basket varies with materials and hook size, easily adaptable to other yarns and fibers including tee-shirt yarn and plarn. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size
