CROCHET TIP:
Beg rounds 1-4 on pot holder with ch 3 and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
Beg rounds 1-9 on basket with ch 3 and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.

DOUBLE STRAND TIP: Use strand both from inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching the 2 strands at the same time - to avoid a thick strand when fastening.
