Q&A with belsoko

The Pegster asked:
How very clever! I love the color! Do you stiffen it at all or just use multiple strands?
belsoko answered:
Hi The Pegster ! I did not stiffen it at all, and it is done using a single strand. But the yarn is a blend of 50 % cotton & 50 % Polyester Micro., 14-ply. I used a 4 mm hook (would normally have gone for a 5 mm).
CarSok asked:
This is what makes me want to crochet! Just love the basket and look forward to starting my first lesson next week.
belsoko answered:
Hello CarSok, crochet is a lot of fun, enjoy !
Emma B asked:
i am new to crochet, will this be an easy project to start with?
belsoko answered:
Very easy ! Pick up a non-elastic yarn like the blend cotton-acryl from DROPS I have used, and a crochet a little under the number advised for the yarn (I have used a 4 mm instead of 5 or 6) so that the result is stiff. And off you are, with a spiralling project (no join in the round, you just crochet a continuous spiral). It is single crochet all along - just one "round" done in the back loops. Go for it ! It is fun to do, and highly customizable.
BerryRobin asked:
I really liked this crochet yarn basket, where did get the pattern at?
belsoko answered:
The pattern can be downloaded for free from Ravelry. There is a link to it in this project page.
