Pattern Notes

Basket is worked in a continuous spiral. Do not join rounds unless specified.

The yarn used for these designs contains natural fiber and requires special laundering. Please read yarn labels and follow directions to maintain the life of your crochet work.

A small length of contrasting yarn may be used in place of a stitch marker. Weave the yarn upwards as you work rounds in the piece. See picture below.
