Are you ready to make yours?

For this pattern you will need:

Cotton yarn

I use this yarn www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/unitas-mirabela  You can also use some of these brands if they are available to you for my patterns Aunt Lydia’s fashion 3 size 100% Mercerized cotton or “Patons Grace” 100% mercerized cotton or anything similar.

3 mm crochet hook

yarn needle

 

Stitches used:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

dc – double crochet

slst – slip stitch

 

For the basket you will use a double strand of yarn. That means you will hold two strands together to create one strand while crocheting.

 

Row 1: Ch 3, 6 sc in the 3rd chain from the hook, slst in the 1st sc from beginning.

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in the same sc that you made slst, 2 sc in every stitch around, slst in the 1st sc from beginning.

Row 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in the same sc that you made slst, 2 sc in next stitch, *1 sc in next, 2 sc in next (repeat from * around), slst in the 1st sc from beginning.

Row 4: Ch 1, 1 sc in the same sc that you made slst, 1 sc in next, 2 sc in next stitch, *1 sc in next 2 stitches, 2 sc in next (repeat from * around), slst in the 1st sc from beginning.

Row 5: Ch 1, 1 sc in the same sc that you made slst, 1 sc in next 2 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch, *1 sc in next 3 stitches, 2 sc in next (repeat from * around), slst in the 1st sc from beginning.

Rows 6-10: Ch 1, 1 sc in the same sc that you made slst, 1 sc in every stitch around, slst in the 1st sc from beginning.

 

 

Row 11 (make this row only through BACK LOOP of the stitch from previous row): Ch 2, 1 hdc in the same stitch you made slsl, 1 hdc in every stitch around, slst in the 1st hdc from beginning.

 

 

Now to make the handle ch 30, 1 sc on the opposite side of the basket, ch 30, slst in the same stitch that you made slst at the end of the row 11. Fasten off.

 

      

 

Now insert hook through the front loop of the 10th row and attach ONLY ONE STRAND of contrasting color.

Ch 3, 3 dc in the same loop, 4 dc in the next loop and in every loop around. When you come to the last loop make only 3 dc then ch 3 and finish with slst in the same loop. Fasten off and tie a knot with two ends.

 

       

 

Make two laces of about 80 chains, tie a knot on every end and wrap them around the handle of the basket, tie them together on every side of the basket.

 

        

 

Weave in all ends and you are DONE!!!!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed it and that you LOVE your new egg basket! 🙂
