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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

CROCHET INFORMATION-1:
At the beginning of each round of double crochets, replace the first double crochet with 3 chain stitches. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round.
At the beginning of each round of single crochets, replace the first single crochet with 1 chain stitch. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at beginning of round.

CROCHET INFORMATION-2:
When changing color at the start of a round, work the slip stitch at the end of the previous round with the new color.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 double crochet by working the next 2 double crochets together as follows: Work 1 double crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work the next double crochet, but when working the last pull through, pull the strand through all 3 loops on the hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).

LOBSTER STITCH:
Work single crochets, but backwards. In other words, work single crochets from
left to right.
----------------------------------------------------------

BASKET:
The piece is worked in the round, from the middle of the bottom of the basket and upwards with 2 strands.

Work 5 chain stitches with 1 strand off white and 1 strand dark beige (= 2 strands) and hook SIZE 5.5 mm/I/9 and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch worked.
Then work in the round as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 12 double crochets around the ring – read CROCHET INFORMATION-1!
ROUND 2: Work 2 double crochets in each double crochet = 24 double crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 double crochet in the first double crochet, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 36 double crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the first 2 double crochets, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 48 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 5: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the first 3 double crochets, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 60 double crochets.
ROUND 6: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the first 4 double crochets, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 72 double crochets – read CROCHET INFORMATION-2.

Change to 2 strands off white and work as follows:
ROUND 7: Work 1 single crochet in the back loop of each double crochet.
ROUNDS 8-11: Work 1 double crochet in each stitch.
ROUND 12: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the first 11 double crochets, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 78 double crochets.
ROUND 13: Work * 1 single crochet in the front loop of each of the first/next 5 double crochets, 2 single crochets in the front loop of the next double crochet* work from *-* = 91 single crochets. This round makes an edge along the outside of the basket. Cut the strand.

Change to 1 strand off white and 1 strand dark beige (= 2 strands).
ROUND 14: Continue working from round 12, on the inside of the piece: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the first 11 double crochets, work the next 2 double crochets together to 1 double crochet (= 1 double crochet decreased) – read DECREASE TIP *, work from *-* to end of round = 72 double crochets.
ROUNDS 15-17: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
ROUND 18: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 13 double crochets, work 12 loose chain stitches and skip 11 double crochets for the handle, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 25 double crochets, work 12 loose chain stitches and skip 11 double crochets for the handle, work 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 12 double crochets on the round.
ROUND 19: Work 1 single crochet in each of the first 13 double crochets, work (1 half double crochet, 11 double crochets, 1 half double crochet) around the chain-space for handle, continue with 1 single crochet in each of the next 25 double crochets, work (1 half double crochet, 11 double crochets, 1 half double crochet) around the chain-space for handle, continue with 1 single crochet in each of the remaining 12 double crochets on the round.

Change to 2 strands off white and work a finishing edge of LOBSTER STITCH - see description above. Work 1 lobster stitch in each stitch to end of round. Cut and fasten the strands.

DECORATION:
Make a tight pom pom of 4 cm / 1½'' in diameter in each of the colors shocking pink, heather, raspberry and apricot. So that the attachments of the pom poms to the basket are hidden, use off white or dark beige to fasten with. Trim the pom poms so that they are neat and even.

Make one tassel in each of the colors apricot, raspberry and heather as follows:
Cut 20 strands of 12 cm / 4¾'' and lay the strands together. Cut 1 strand off white or dark beige of 20 cm / 8'', tie a knot around the 20 strands. Fold double at the knot and wind a strand in the same color as the tassel 4 times around, approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' down from the fold and tie a knot. Cut the strands so that the tassels are even at the bottom.

Sew every other pom pom and tassel to Round 12 on the basket.

Row 14, continue from round 12? \r\n\r\nDear Drops\r\n\r\nI\'m stuck on row 14. I\'m not sure what it means to continue on the inside to work on one row before. Thank you

Dear KK, on round 13 you have worked in the front loop of sts from round 12. On round 14 you will work in the unworked loop (= back loop) of sts from round 12. Happy crocheting!
