Your pattern says to finish with a slip stitch row of Color A. But the photo shows the top edge as color B. Is there a reason?

Ive worked with two strands together, but this project calls for handling three. Its interesting how the designer instructs you to periodically cut one of the yarn strands to make the ember pattern. Its not a hard pattern to follow but it is fiddly. And definitely use the stitch markers on this one! The original free download can be found here http// == s-basket

This is a great craft pattern to make to hold a variety of different small items such as threads, candles, cat toys and even coupons.

I love this basket design! I love the colorway, too. I appreciate that we have the pattern right on this page instead of a separate link. It looks like it holds quite a bit of stuff! These would be great for holding babies toys, stuffed animals and blankets. There are several color combinations to make this in.

I made this as a birthday gift for my sister. She loves it and it has found a very practical use, holding her yarn! Looks fantastic!

These baskets are infinitely versatile. They would not look out of place in your craft room, filled with yarn or thread bobbins. How sweet would they look in a child's room, customized to the decor, filled with little toy cars or blocks? They wouldn't look amiss even on your kitchen table, lined with a cloth napkin for your bread! What about filling it with goodies as a welcome gift for a new neighbour?

not made because there is no pic....wouldn't even know what it's supposed to look like

There is a photo now added at the top! It's so cute!

Hi there, There are photos added for every project - there might have been a temporary loading issue preventing this one from showing, but it's there! The image URL, if you need it, is Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet
