Pattern Notes

Ch 3 at beg of rows or rnds counts as 1 dc.

Ch 2 at beg of rows or rnds counts as 1 hdc.

Wind 15 yards of each color into a yarn butterfly to use as the yarn source (bobbin). Make additional yarn butterflies as work progresses or if additional colors are needed in a row.

Drop unused yarn after a color change to WS. The dropped yarns can be carried along WS of work until needed in the same or adjacent row(s) or can be cut and woven on WS as work progresses.

Leave a beginning 4” tail when adding a new color.

Pattern’s first block begins on WS at lower right-side bottom edge of chart. Pattern is worked diagonally throughout. All odd rows are worked diagonally downward ending at the bottom edge of the basket. All even rows beg at the bottom edge and are worked diagonally upward.

Basket height is completed after Row 7 and remaining Rows 8-46 progress horizontally to left side edge forming basket circumference.

Join with a slip stitch unless otherwise noted.

Back loop of a st is loop farthest away.
