Beg every round with 1 ch and finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

Ch 4 on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with orange and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: ch 1, 8 sc in ch-ring - read CROCHET TIP.
ROUND 2: ch 1, 2 sc in every sc = 16 sc.
ROUND 3: ch 1, * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 24 sc.
ROUND 4: ch 1, work 1 sc in every sc = 24 sc.
ROUND 5: ch 1, * 1 sc in each of the first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 32 sc.
ROUND 6: ch 1, work 1 sc in every sc = 32 sc.
ROUND 7: Work * 1 sc in each of the first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 40 sc.

Continue inc on every other round with 1 sc more between every inc until a total of 9-13 round have been worked = 48-64 sc.

Continue to work the next 2 rounds as follows - remember CROCHET TIP.
ROUND 1: ch 1, * ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: ch 1, * 1 sc in ch, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-*.

Continue to work 1 sc in every sc until piece measures 7-10 cm / 2 3/4"-4" measured from sc/ch round. Fasten off.

Use black. Work one round around the edge of basket with 1 sc in every sc. Work 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc, ch 1, turn piece, then work back and forth with 1 sc in every sc and turn the row with 1 ch. Cut the thread when the handle measures 30 cm / 11 3/4''. Fasten in the other end with neat stitches.
