Carve six weight yarn and it comes with a stripe effect so your basket will look like you've done a ton of color work when it's really all with the yarn to start you need to pull the center of your cake so that we can start with this center color once you find the ends of the center we can start with a slipknot directly on our hook to make a slipknot place the end of the thread in the palm of your hand take the working thread wrap it around your index and middle finger and when you come back across as you twist your hand, you can take the hook, go under the front loop and grab the back loop and let your fingers come out and you have a slipknot, just spread your legs apart and pull it tight. to your crochet ok now you want to make a chain so you're going to wrap your yarn around like this and the chain for this is the bottom of our basket so we want to join with a slip stitch to the first chain we created so I've put my hook on that chain first by pulling a thread through a loop and then pull the loop that is on my hook.

Now I have a ring that I'm going to work the next set of stitches into. I start with a chain two and this chain two doesn't count as a stitch at all times so I won't count that. now I went to pass the yarn over my hook to be able to complete half of the double crochets all worked in the ring. I create it right where my finger is, so I'm going to insert my crochet hook into that ring. three loops I can pass these stitches around the ring as I create them to be two three four again I'm putting them all in that ring five six seven eight 9 you'll be like oh wait you ran out of room and you still have more to go no, just take the first ones you made and the ones you just finished and just place them around that ring so it would be 9 10 11 and 12 now we're supposed to slip stitch to the first double crochet half so I'll insert through both lakes yarn over pull and then pull through the loop on my hook yes it will have a little hole here at the bottom of the basket but that is totally fine as long as you have created your twelve half double crochets that is the main purpose congratulations you have finished the first round that is the setup for the rest of the circle we will create it for the bottom of the basket when you knit circles you increase the number of stitches in each to round, so for the second round we start with chain two and in this first half of the double crochet that we join with a slip stitch in we will place two half treble crochets, so we are going to place two in that first stitch, now in each stitch around, we'll do it again, so we'll place two half treble crochets in each stitch around, so we'll go from 12 half double crochet to 24 when you get to the end of the circle and finish the last half double crochet join with a slip stitch to the first half double crochet you will now see that you have created a circle and I have already established all your increased stitches in the following rounds you will continue increasing but with each round you will have one more half double crochet between each of the increases for example in round 3 you will start with a chain 2 you will start with two half double crochets in the first stitch and then you will have double crochets in the next stitch you will put two half double crochets in the next stitch and then one half double crochet in the next stitch notice how there is a single half double crochet in the middle each of the two half double crochet increases that are in round 3 in round 4 you will have two half double crochets between each increase in round five you will have three half double crochets between each increase in round six you can see that it constantly changes slightly because instead of working four half double crochets in between we will have nine half double crochets and then one increase this will bring us to a total of 66 half double crochets I have already worked in a swatch up to that point, so let's incorporate it and we can continue this basket pattern and here we are, this is the bottom of my basket through round six.

I'm getting ready to start round seven which is where we start to change the look of the basket from facing down and we'll start working the sides of the basket so I'm at the beginning here and I start with the chain this one is already different and now working through the back the loops are just ok so working just through that loop in that loop and that loop not through both but just the back loop we'll single crochet in each of the half double crochet all the way around so I'll just work the back loop alone and work one round of single crochet.

The body of the basket is worked in single stitches, it makes it a little stronger and stiffer to support the sides of the basket, so you want to make sure you are knitting these stitches well. and snug because it will give your bas For more stability and structure as you get to the end of this round, you will join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet just like you have done all along and now the designer wants us to take a stitch marker and place it on our fabric at this point so we have a place to measure from the side of the basket, now we continue with round eight and we'll repeat round eight for the body of the basket, start with chain one and then work through both legs of the stitch you'll single crochet the whole way around so it's just a round and round and round and round single crochet and at the end of each round join with a slip stitch and then chain one alright so you're working both legs this round see how it works so alright can you tell the difference here?
You have the front legs that we don't use exposed here and that will be the turn for the basket so look here is the bottom and this will be the turn and then for the b The body of the basket we will work single crochet rounds you work these rounds single crochet until the body of the basket measures about eight and a half inches from the marker I'm going to go ahead and get to that point you should too and then it's as

easy

as getting ready for the handles and you're done with this basket oh almost i forgot one more thing before i go let me show you how to add a new ball of yarn when the time comes when you get to the end of your skein of yarn all you will do is knit to the point where you have at least four to six inches left and then , when you get to the next stitch continue with the yarn, pull up a loop and then yarn over with your new ball of yarn and pull that new ball of yarn through those two loops, ok now your new ball of yarn is on your hook and p can you continue I know there are some youtube instructors that would say weave over these ends and that would be enough to weave them I'm not that crochet instructor I want you to weave those ends at the end of the project ok let me continue and get to those handles that It's a little long, isn't it?
My basket has now reached eight and a half inches from the marker and it's time for the handles now the instructions for the handles have you start your round and you hit 23 singles and I've done that now I'm supposed to chain ten like this that I'm going to chain ten and now I want to skip ten in my basket so I want to make sure I don't count the one that I've worked in two so one two three four five six seven eight nine ten go to the next one and I'll single crochet on that one and the next twenty-two giving me my 23 so I'm going to have 23 single crochet again and repeat chain ten and then skip ten stitches 22 and 23 and chain ten and then skip 10 which brings me right here to join with a slip stitch is ok so i started my handles here and i started my handles here so the next round we're going to work on these stitches that we chained and then we'll do three more rounds of single crochet so let me go to where the ch stitches are ena and we can work on those and that would be 23 and I'm right here where all my chains are and I'll single crochet each of these chains so I'll go back to my original stitch count once I do that and just like when you work on any kind of a base chain that I like to punch through the chain itself and I get what I would call the end of the stitch and the back leg of the stitch on my needle ok so here is my chain and just I'm going to drill it and low.
I know I have friends who like to work right at the back or end of the stitch, but I really like to work these chain stitches this way. for him there's my chain and you just drill right into it pretty simple fill in here when you get to the end of the chains just continue the round of single crochet you've already created until you get to the next set of chains for the other handle and you'll repeat the process with a low point. in those chains of ten ten once you've gone through all those chains join with a slip stitch and then the last thing you do is three more rounds of single crochet just working back on top of those handle stitches. to the end of my third row and I'm ready to join with a slip stitch after this last stitch here right there as always throughout the project I want to take my scissors I want to cut a tail leaving at least four to six inches so I can knit this tail and all I'm going to do is pull that tail right there okay and I'll take my tapestry needle and what I do is I usually unplug they open up a little bit and Pinch them around my needle can you see throwing it out? around the needle so I can slide it over the yarn needle ok now working straight through this V can you see that V?
That is actually the first stitch of the round. I'm going to work right through the center of that V and go down and then I'm going to go back here where the yarn came out earlier here on this last one and go down and it gives a nice perfect join there okay now on the inside I want to take this tail and i want to weave in my ends now i can weave it with all the yarn like this but i actually prefer to do this i will untangle the yarn or unwind the yarn to here at the base this is what i do when i am dealing with bulky yarn like this and weave in each part from the tail individually, so for this one I'm going to lower the points post a little bit, ok, go all the way down and then go back up. posting those stitches is not all the way up but only partially and then back down and as i'm g going down the post i'm trying to split the actual yarn and fiber just as we parted it i'm making my needle go all the way through and only it comes on the inside my needle is not visible on the outside it's okay once that's done in those three directions I can let that be and I can come here and I can do each of these individually as well once they're all done you can sit them right and close to the fabric and you can remove your stitch marker if you still have it there and your basket is complete now i want to remind you of this kind of curved line that you have from the basket that is perfectly normal and natural for the crochet to happen with that little curve unless you do a special technique to prevent the seam from being crooked it will always be crooked but once your basket is done lemme lemme get it all out here this basket is s super adorable look how cute it is it's such a cute basket it stands on its own i mean obviously you can see it on tha face camera it's right here but then looking down you can see it's not like it doesn't dip into any side and I can put whatever I want on it so it's cool look how cute it is I love it and there you go look at that. great basket with those handles and i love that the stripes make it look like i did a lot of color work but the yarn did all the work for me and the fact that it stands on its own is fantastic i can't wait to fill this with my yarn or my books or just leave it there looking pretty with the plants inside I hope you make this basket really cool and if you do please share it with us on social media use the hashtag marley
