Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.

The first single crochets at the beginning of each round are replaced by 1 chain stitch, the round ends with 1 slip stitch in this chain stitch.
This is not described for each round in the text, but each round starts and ends in this way.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show the colors in the pattern. 1 square = 1 single crochet.

When changing color, work as follows: Work the last single crochet with the first color, but wait with the last pull through, change to next color and work the last pull through with the new color, then work the next single crochet.
When working with 2 colors, lay the strand of the color you are not working with over the stitches from the previous round and work around the strand so that it is hidden and also taken forward.

Use the strand from both the inside and outside of the ball. When changing balls, it is a good idea not to change both strands at the same time - this avoids the strand change being too thick.

The basket is worked in the round from middle of bottom and upwards. The whole basket is worked with 2 strands of each color.

Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 5 mm / H/8 and 2 strands dark red and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Read CROCHET INFO, COLOR CHANGE and DOUBLE STRAND TIP!
Work A.1 in the round as follows (= 6 repeats of A.1 on the round).
ROUND 1: Work 6 single crochets around the ring (this is the first row in A.1).
ROUND 2: Work 2 single crochets in each single crochet = 12 single crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 single crochet in the first single crochet, 2 single crochets in next single crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 18 single crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 4: Work * 1 single crochet in each of the 2 first/next single crochets, 2 single crochets in next single crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 24 single crochets.
Continue to work single crochets in the round according to A.1 in this way by increasing 6 single crochets every round, i.e. each round work 1 more single crochet between each increase. When A.1 has been completed, there are 84 stitches on the round. Now work the sides of the basket as described below (do not cut strand).

Continue working in the round, but now work A.2 in the round without increasing (= 14 repeats of 6 stitches). When A.2 is finished, cut and fasten the strands.

Work an edge around top of basket with lobster stitch and 2 strands dark red (lobster stitch = work single crochets from left to right). Cut and fasten the strand.
