MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back.

CROCHET INFO:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.

COLOR CHANGE:
To get a nice color change work last sc on round as follows: Insert hook in last st, get yarn, make a YO with the new color and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round with the new color.
----------------------------------------------------------

LARGE BASKET:

ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 20 sc.

ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, work 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 10 inc sc) = 40 sc.
ROUND 5: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, work 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 10 inc sc) = 50 sc.
ROUND 6: Work 1 sc in every sc.
