----------------------------------------------------------

LOW BASKET:
Worked from bottom up.
Work 4 ch on hook size 3 mm / C with strong blue and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO and STRIPE COLORS 1. Work 6 sc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 12 sc.
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 sc.
ROUND 4: Work 1 sc in every sc but work 2 sc in every 3rd sc = 24 sc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 sc in every sc but work 2 sc in every 4th sc = 30 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Then work 1 sc more between inc until 24 rounds have been worked = 144 sc on last round. Bottom measures approx. 23 cm / 9'' in diameter. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Now work the side of basket as follows: Work 1 sc in every sc until piece measures approx. 14 cm / 5½''.
Turn piece to work in opposite direction (this is done because the edge is folded outwards, and the pattern will be on RS). Work edge as follows: READ CROCHET INFO and STRIPE COLORS 2. Work A.1 the entire round (= 36 repetitions). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work last round as follows: Work 2 sc in first sc, ch 1, skip 2 sc, * 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, skip 2 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 48 times in total). Fasten off. Piece measures approx. 23 cm / 9''. Fold the edge outwards.

BASKET TO HANG:
Work 4 ch on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with light wash and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.

ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 6 sc in ch-ring = 6 sc.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 12 sc.
ROUND 3: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 sc.
ROUND 4: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 sc.
ROUND 5: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sc.
ROUND 6: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 sc.
ROUND 7: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 42 sc.
ROUND 8: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

Then work pattern according to diagram as follows:
Read CROCHET INFO and PATTERN COLORS! Work A.1 the entire round (= 33 repetitions). Work A.1 2 times in total vertically = 132 dc on last round. Now dec in pattern, i.e. work as follows: * Work A.1 3 times, A.2, A.1 4 times, A.2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times (= 3 times in total). When A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 108 dc on round. Piece measures approx. 25½ cm / 10''. Now work a round with white as follows: Work 15 ch (= strap), 2 sc in first dc, * ch 1, skip 2 st, 2 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, work 15 sc in ch for strap and finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
