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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

CROCHET INFORMATION-1:
At the beginning of each round of treble crochets, replace the first treble 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 double crochets, replace the first double 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 colour at the start of a round, work the slip stitch at the end of the previous round with the new colour.

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

LOBSTER STITCH:
Work double crochets, but backwards. In other words, work double 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 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 treble crochets around the ring – read CROCHET INFORMATION-1!
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochets in each treble crochet = 24 treble crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 treble crochet in the first treble crochet, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 36 treble crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 treble crochet in each of the first 2 treble crochets, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 48 treble crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 5: Work * 1 treble crochet in each of the first 3 treble crochets, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 60 treble crochets.
ROUND 6: Work * 1 treble crochet in each of the first 4 treble crochets, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 72 treble crochets – read CROCHET INFORMATION-2.

Change to 2 strands off white and work as follows:
ROUND 7: Work 1 double crochet in the back loop of each treble crochet.
ROUNDS 8-11: Work 1 treble crochet in each stitch.
ROUND 12: Work * 1 treble crochet in each of the first 11 treble crochets, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 78 treble crochets.
ROUND 13: Work * 1 double crochet in the front loop of each of the first/next 5 treble crochets, 2 double crochets in the front loop of the next treble crochet* work from *-* = 91 double 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 treble crochet in each of the first 11 treble crochets, work the next 2 treble crochets together to 1 treble crochet (= 1 treble crochet decreased) – read DECREASE TIP *, work from *-* to end of round = 72 treble crochets.
ROUNDS 15-17: Work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet.
ROUND 18: Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 13 treble crochets, work 12 loose chain stitches and skip 11 treble crochets for the handle, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 25 treble crochets, work 12 loose chain stitches and skip 11 treble crochets for the handle, work 1 treble crochet in each of the remaining 12 treble crochets on the round.
ROUND 19: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 13 treble crochets, work (1 half treble crochet, 11 treble crochets, 1 half treble crochet) around the chain-space for handle, continue with 1 double crochet in each of the next 25 treble crochets, work (1 half treble crochet, 11 treble crochets, 1 half treble crochet) around the chain-space for handle, continue with 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 12 treble 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 in diameter in each of the colours 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 colours apricot, raspberry and heather as follows:
Cut 20 strands of 12 cm and lay the strands together. Cut 1 strand off white or dark beige of 20 cm, tie a knot around the 20 strands. Fold double at the knot and wind a strand in the same colour as the tassel 4 times around, approx. 1 cm 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.
