Ok, I love these...in the pic that is...I really am a beginner and I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong...I don't make it off the bottom and my work isn't flat on the bottom as these appear...what am I doing wrong?!

Just finished this pattern this evening. First it calls for 6oz yarn, but the Materials list says specifically. "Bernat Mega Bulky". That is 7oz, and thicker. If you use the Mega Bulky, you need 4.5 skeins to make the small basket. It is lovely however. Lastly, the instructions for the second row for the handles didn't seem to align with what I saw in the picture, so I just sc around again. And added one more round of sc to make them thicker. Easy as pie. Oh! And if you use the Mega Bulky, maybe up your hook size. I used the 10mm and it's a super-tight gauge on the basket, fyi.

Thank you for all of those hints and tips! As a beginner pattern I didn't think there would be too much difficulty with it but I will probably follow your lead when making these, that way I don't run in to having to trash my project! These will make the perfect containers for my large stash of yarn!
