Sister Easter Baskets
Created By: Trisha Ratliff
Craft: crochet
Materials: Loops and Threads Impeccable
Pattern Source: original: Easter Basket

This is a great simple starter pattern. I only made a few modifications to suit my needs. I added two more rows. R14- sc even (44 sts). R 15- (decrease 4 sts evenly around to allow the neck of the bowl to taper in a bit)-> *sc in next 9 sts, sc2tog* repeat four times around (40 sts). Join. Do NOT finish off. I then chose to add my handle on here by using the chainless foundation dc method. Dc the 31 sts as written in the pattern and join to the opposite side of the basket. Finish off and weave in ends. Next, I wanted a rolled edging around the whole basket and handle. I did this in two steps after the handle was added. Start to the right of where the handle is joined on one side; join new yarn and do reverse sc around to the opposite side of the bowl and continue up along the handle stitches. Join to first stitch and finish off. Repeat with the other side of the basket and handle. THEN, last change. I wanted the basket to sit better and have a more sturdy base. So, using the free loops left over from round 5 on the bottom of the basket: join new yarn and do the rev sc stitch in each free loop; join and finish off. Viola! Base made!
