PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

DOUBLE STRAND TIP:
Use the strand from both the inside and outside of the ball. When changing to a new ball, it is a good idea not to change both strands at the same time – so that the fastening of the strands will not be so thick.

CROCHET INFO:
Each round starts with 1 chain stitch (the chain stitch does not replace the first double crochet). Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet.
Each row starts with 1 chain stitch (the chain stitch does not replace the first double crochet).

WORK 2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER:
* Push the hook into the next stitch, pick up the strand *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a yarn over and pull the yarn over through all 3 loops on the hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).

LOBSTER STITCHES:
Are worked as double crochets, but backwards. In other words, you work a double crochet from left to right. The round with lobster stitch starts with 1 chain stitch (the chain stitch does not replace the first double crochet) and finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

BASKET WITH LID:
The basket is worked in the round, bottom up. READ DOUBLE STRAND TIP! The lid is worked in the round, top down.

BOTTOM:
Work 3 chain stitches with hook size 5.5 mm and 2 strands apricot and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work A.1 a total of 6 times in the round – Remember CROCHET INFO! When A.1 has been completed in height, there are 48 double crochets on the last round.
Then work A.2 a total of 4 times in the round. When A.2 has been completed in height, there are 32 double crochets on the last round. Now work 1 round with LOBSTER STITCHES – see description above. Cut and fasten the strand.

TAIL:
Make a pompom of approx. 6 cm in diameter with a remnant of off white. Sew it on to the bottom of the basket.

LID:
The lid is worked in the round, top down.
Work 3 chain stitches with hook size 5.5 mm and 2 strands apricot and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work A.1 a total of 6 times in the round. When round 7 in A.1 has been completed in height, there are 42 double crochets on the round, continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 double crochet in the back loop of each stitch.
ROUND 2: Work 1 round with lobster stitches.
Cut and fasten the strand.

EARS:
The ears are worked back and forth and are sewn on to the lid afterwards.
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 5.5 mm and 2 strands raspberry.
ROW 1: Work 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 chain stitches = 3 double crochets.
ROW 2: Work 1 double crochet in each of the 3 double crochets.
ROW 3: Work 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, 2 double crochets in the next stitch = 5 double crochets.
ROWS 4.-10: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
ROW 11: WORK 2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER – see description above, work 1 double crochet, work 2 double crochets together = 3 double crochets.
ROW 12: * Push the hook through the first stitch and pull the strand through *, repeat from *-* in each of the next 2 stitches (= 4 loops on the hook), make a yarn over and pull the strand through all the loops on the hook.
Cut the strands and fasten them.
Work an edge of double crochets around the ear as follows: Fasten the strand with 1 double crochet in the first chain stitch worked at the start of the ear. Work 1 double crochet in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch in each of the first 11 rows, work 1 chain stitch, work (1 double crochet, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet) in the 3 stitches worked together outermost on the ear, work 1 chain stitch and continue along the edge with 1 double crochet in each of the 11 rows. Cut the strand, but leave approx. 20 cm for assembly.
Work another ear in the same way.
Sew the ears in the row which was worked in the back loop of the stitches on the lid. Sew with 1 strand in one and one stitch so that the seam is not thick. Cut and fasten the strand.

EYES AND SNOUT:
The eyes are worked in the round with 1 strand.
Work 3 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and a remnant of grey and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.
ROUND 1: Work 6 double crochets around the chain-stitch ring.
ROUND 2: Change to off white and work 2 chain stitches, work 1 treble crochet in the first double crochet, work 2 treble crochets in each of the next 2 double crochets, work 1 half treble crochet in the next double crochet. Cut the strand but leave approx. 20 cm for assembly.
Work another eye in the same way.
Sew the eyes to the basket by sewing a few stitches up and along the edge of the eyes.
Make a snout on the basket by sewing a few stitches with a remnant of grey and double thread. Cut and fasten the strand.

TWISTED CORD:
Cut 2 strands off white of 1 metre. Twist them together until they begin to resist, fold the cord double and it will twist again. Tie a knot in each end so that it stays twisted.
Thread both ends of the cord through the centre of the lid so that there is a loop on the lid. Tie the ends of the cord together on the inside of the lid.
