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.



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.

Bottom Pattern, Knit in the Round:

Using size 11 {8mm} needles with 16″ {41cm} circular cable

CO 43 STS, PM, join in the round.

Round 1:  *K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG* {3 times} K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, P1, K1, P1, K1 {36 STS remain}

Round 5: *K2TOG* {6 STS remain}

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.



I created a video for this too! I’m a visual learner, so I like to create videos to help other visual learners. :)
