Notes:

Not reversible.

Knit top down.

Knit using the seed stitch.

Knit in the round with a circular needle.

When knitting in the round you’re always knitting the right side of your work.

I knit the basket using small needles to get a tight stitch, so it will stand up on it’s own.

 

Video:

I create this like I end a hat, which I’ve created a video for and I do it all with my circular cable needles.

Don’t bind-off. Cut thread leaving about 12″ {30cm}, pull through the remaining STS, pull tight, push it through the center into the inside and weave in the ends.

I used a crochet hook to sew the bottom onto the basket.

Weave in the ends.

No blocking necessary.
