Work 4 ch on hook size 3 mm with orange and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 6 dc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 12 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 dc in first/next dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 dc.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 dc.

Continue by working 1 dc more between inc until piece measures approx. 12 cm in diameter (if you want a larger basket continue the same way until desired diameter). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures approx. 4.5 cm (or desired height), switch to black and work 2 round with 1 dc in every dc. Work next round as follows: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Fasten off.

Beg the vertical lines with 1 stitch at the beg of round (- see arrow in diagram), sew 1 stitch in the middle of bottom, sew through edge, baste on the back, sew through edge, sew 1 stitch in the middle of bottom etc. the entire round - NOTE: Make sure that to avoid a tight yarn. Then sew the diagonal lines (= 3 round), sew 1 backstitches around each of the vertical lines in the crossing point to fasten the vertical lines. Fasten yarn after last round.

SPIDER:

BODY:
Beg at the back of body and work forward.
Work 4 ch on hook size 3 mm with black and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 1: Work 6 dc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc the entire round = 12 dc.
ROUNDS 3-6: 1 dc in every dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 7: Work all DC TOG 2 by 2 - see explanation above. = 6 dc.

HEAD:
ROUND 8: Work * 1 dc in first/next dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 9 dc.
ROUND 9: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 10: Work 1 dc in first dc, then work all dc tog 2 by 2 = 5 dc.
Put some cotton wool in the spider, cut the yarn. Sew on 2 eyes with stitches in orange. Baste it up and down around the opening at the top of head and tighten.
Twine a black yarn around the transition between body and head, fasten.

LEGS:
Work 4 pairs of legs in black (= 8 legs in total). Beg with the longest legs at the back. Work legs tog in the middle so that they are easy to fasten under the spider.

The 2 legs at the back: Work 21 ch, cut the yarn.
The 2 second to last legs: Work 10 ch, then 1 sl st in the middle ch from previous ch row and 10 ch, cut the yarn.
The 2 second foremost legs: Work 9 ch, then 1 sl st in sl st from previous ch row and 9 ch, cut the yarn.
The 2 front legs: Work 8 ch, then 1 sl st in sl st from previous ch row and 8 ch, cut the yarn.

To avoid fastening the strands in each end of legs, tie a small knot right by the ch row, then cut the yarn directly below the knot.

Place all legs under the spider and fasten them on the middle.
If you want to hang the spider, make a loop by pulling a yarn through the middle of body and back, let the loop be approx. 6 cm long, tie the 2 strands tog under the body and fasten.
