I was making more of my “mini” bowls/baskets. There are just so many uses for this little item – candy favors, table decorations, baby/bridal showers, small soaps, flowers, paper clips, loose change, ear buds, etc.
I love mixing one variegated cotton yarn with a bright solid cotton yarn for a very Springy look and feel but this item certainly could be hooked up into any color combo that would be perfect for your occasion. I also really love working with Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn but use what you like and are familiar with.
Here’s the link to this pattern, which makes for a cute bowl style basket:
If you want a more flat bottom, complete round 3 in the BLO (back loop only) to achieve that effect. Then continue on with the pattern as written.
Hope you enjoy this “mini” basket and would love to see your pictures.
