Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
See diagram A.1. Work diagram in tr, i.e. 1 square in diagram = 1 tr with 2 strands.

COLOUR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colour work as follows: Work last tr with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour and work last pull through, then work next tr. When working with two colour place strands for the colour not worked over sts from previous round, work around the strands so that they are hidden and follows in the round.

Beg every dc round with 1 ch, finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round (this ch is not count in no of dc).
Beg every tr round with 3 ch, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (these ch are not counted in no of tr).

Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

Work as dc but backwards. I.e. work dc from left to right.

Work 4 ch on hook size 5.5 mm with 2 strands dark grey and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch - READ DOUBLE YARN TIP.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 6 dc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 12 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 4: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc.
ROUND 5: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 dc.
ROUND 6: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 dc.
Continue to work like this until 12 rounds have been worked = 72 dc on last round.
Work next round as follows: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 80 dc. Piece measures approx. 20 cm in diameter. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work the edge.

Worked in pattern with 2 colours at a time.
Work edge as follows: Remember CROCHET INFO! Work A.1 (= 16 tr) the entire round - READ COLOUR PATTERN. When A.1 has been worked vertically, work 1 round with 2 strands mustard as follows: Work 1 REVERSE DC in every tr - see explanation above. Fasten off.


= off white
= mustard
= dark grey

Bellissimo questo cestino ma non sarebbe meglio lavorarlo tutto a spirale invece che chiudere tutti i giri? Il disegno si apprezza ugualmente....

Buongiorno Paola. Può lavorare anche in spirale se preferisce. Buon lavoro!

I do agree with Sissy, one of my crochet students is working on this pattern and if the 3ch do not count as a dc, then the last one is an extra stitch.

Sissy 11.04.2017 - 22:21:

The first round has the last stitch with an X in it. Your video shows the last stitch worked as the empty box color, the chart shows an X so technically you must stop before the end of the chart. That is fine when the first and last stitches are to be done in the same color. But for rows 4 & 6 the chain will not be the correct color. I have made the adjustments, but am writing to you for others who may not be able to make it work.

Sissy 10.04.2017 - 05:11:

Yes, but then what happens when you come to the end of the chart on the last repeat? What is the last stitch?

DROPS Design 10.04.2017 kl. 23:08:

Dear Sissy, after the last repeat, you close the round with a slip stitch, which you crochet into the top of the 3 treble, the round was started with. I hope this helps. Happy chrocheting!

Sissy 01.04.2017 - 19:42:

Hi, in the notes section of the pattern it says the ch 3 that replaces the first dc of every round does not count in the number of dc for the round. I believe as the pattern is written and as the video shows, it is counted.

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 13:33:

Dear Sissy, you can see in the first round in the video that the first 3 ch are worked extra to the first 2 sts worked in green (in the video / dark grey in the pattern). Happy crocheting!
