Basket

I made this little basket as a part of a birthday present – where the gift was money. After I startede to crochet I simply don’t like just giving a card with money in it. So for the last few year I have been making different things as presents. I try to make something that I know the person likes – but that can be hard when the recipient is a man. 🙂

I made this little basket for some easter eggs and some money. The colors are two different blue that I had a small amount left of. I chose those because the gift was for a man.

The parttern:

I made a round bottom. I closed every round with a slip stitch and start ever round with 2 ch.

  1. magic ring with 7 hdc. (7)
  2. 2 hdc in each stitch (14)
  3. *1 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (21)
  4. *2 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (28)
  5. *3 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (35)
  6. *4 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (42)
  7. *5 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (49)
  8. *6 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (56)
  9. *7 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (63)
  10. *8 hdc, 2 hdc in the next stitch* repeat *-* 7 times (70)

The number of stitches has to be divide with 7 for the waves to look like mine. I made 70 stitches my number on this basket.

To start the sides on the basket make 1 hdc in each stitch but only in the back loop. After that make 2 more rounds with 1 hdc in each stitch in both loops. The third round of the sides I din’t close. I pulled the stitch on the needle long and left it. This will be closed together with the round with the waves.

I now change color. Starting in the front loop of round 10 (the bottom) I only work in the front loop.

Repeat from* to * all the way around the basket.

  • *1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 2 tr slip stitch at the top of third round of the side in the front loop, ch 4 and slip stitch in the next stitch at the bottom*.

When you get all around with the waves you take the long stitch in the other color. Put the loop on the hook and tightened then slip stitch.

Now ch 2 and make 1 hdc in each stitch around the basket.

The last round is made in dc. Repeat from * to * all the way around the basket.

  • Ch 2, *make 1 dc in the 2. stitch from the chain. now make 1 dc in the stitch you skipped*. This vil make a cross.

Enjoy.
