I followed the instructions as written for this basket, except that I used Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn and a size N crochet hook. Made a very sturdy basket. One skein of yarn is all that is needed. Will post a picture soon.

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!

So easy, I made it in one day! Used 3 strands of Lion Cotton since I had it already. Will definitely make this again next year!

I chose to do a thick 1-stranded Lion Brand yarn from my stash. I just have so much. I stayed true to the pattern otherwise. I only got tripped up on the handle. I may have mis-read, but then again it was during a tornado warning/watch and severe thunderstorm watch. Anyway it was very easy, it went quickly and I will definitely be playing around with this pattern. Thank you and Happy Easter all. Though the basket can be used for other occassion ya know!

Easter Basket Reviewed by Deborah on 2011-04-12 *****
I too thought this basket was adorable and very, VERY easy to make...

As always I adapt patterns, and this one was no different...
I made it in Lime Green and White (my daughter loves lime green)...making the top two rows a 'solid green' with a green handle...

AND...Instead of making the handle separately which necessitates the extra step of 'sewing' it onto the basket,...What I did was this...As I finished the last stitch on the last row of the basket (the rim) using the same 'yarn' (do NOT cut the yarn) I continued crocheting by making the chain stitch base for the handle and then slip stitched it through the rim of the other side of the basket. I then finished making the handle, using an extra slip stitch onto the rim of the basket with each row to securly anchor the handle to the basket...

I also added a little flower to one side...

As you can see, it still turned out well...The basket itself measures 8 1/4 at the widest point by 5 inches tall with the handle making it a total of 11 inches tall.
Am going to give it to my 23 y/o daughter for Easter with lots of homemade goodies (lotions and soaps) in it...

I can see where adjusting the size of the basket can be easily done by adding or subtracting...And the colors, well, it can be made with any color or combination of colors...

Thanks for this wonderful little project.

I love this basket. I made it in yellow. Mine came out a little taller for some reason than the basket in the picture. It is still cute!
