Crochet Easter Basket: Description and Pattern
We knit the bottom of the basket with single crochets using the standard circle pattern, adding 6 columns evenly in each row. Knit to the desired size of the bottom of the basket. 1 row. Around amigurumi ring - 6 tbsp. without nakida 2 row. In each column of the previous row - 2 tbsp. without nakida It turned out 12 loops. 3 row. 2 tbsp. double crochet - every second loop.

The bottom of the crocheted Easter basket is ready, now we will knit just up to the desired height. 11-16 rows. 3 vp lift, a series of double crochets without increase-decrease, complete the series with a deaf loop in the third air lift loop. 17 row Select the handle. Our row is 60 columns; under the handles we will select 8 loops each. We calculate the distance between the handles: (60-8x2): 2 = 22, where 60 is the row length in the bars, 8 is the handle length, and two is the number of handles. It turns out that the distance between the handles will be 22 columns. This series of knit so: 3 v.p. lifting, 1 tbsp. double crochet, 8 paras., 22 art. double crochet through the 8 columns of the previous row, 8 vp, 20 tbsp. with nakida, deaf loop in the third air lift loop. 18 row.

A row of single crochets for sealing the edge. Upon request, the finished basket can be decoratedribbon, pendants, crocheted flowers, bright buttons, beads, etc. Since we plan to use a basket for a photo in the future, it should not delay all attention in the frame, so we left it without decor, in the most concise style.
How to compact the basket if necessary
- cut plastic or cardboard strip (lengthequal to the length of the circumference of the bottom, and the width - the height of the basket to the handles) and a circle (whose diameter is equal to the diameter of the bottom); in the same dimensions as plastic or cardboard blanks, cut the lining (plus seam allowances); make the lining, laying seals between it and the knitted part;
- around the perimeter of the bottom and the top edge of the basket, tie in a whalebone (used to seal the edges of knitted caps).
