START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

BASKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, starting with the bottom, from the middle of the heart. Start at the arrow showing the direction to cast on. Start with a row of chain stitches = thick, black line in middle of diagram. At the end of the line there is a triangle; first round starts here (= oval symbol).
ROUND 1 (also shown in diagram) is worked as described below.

BASKET:
CAST ON: Work 19 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm = US E/4 and Paris.
ROUND 1: Work 3 chain stitches, turn and work 6 double crochets in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 8 chain stitches – REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Now continue around the point of the heart as follows:
Work 1 double crochet + 2 chain stitches + 1 double crochet in the next chain stitch, then 1 double crochet in each of the next 8 chain stitches, 7 double crochets in the next (last) chain stitch. Continue by working on the other side of the row of chain stitches. Work 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches, work 2 double crochets together, see description above, skip 1 chain stitch, work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches and finish with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round. The first round is now finished.

Continue in the round according to diagram A.1 until the diagram has been completed, but where double crochets are worked together (rounds 2-3), skip 2 stitches.
Now work 1 single crochet in each stitch on the round – read CROCHET INFO. AT THE SAME TIME on round 1 increase 1 stitch = 75 single crochets. Work 5 rounds of single crochets. Then work a picot edge as follows: Work 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in 2nd chain stitch, skip 2 stitches, 1 double crochet in the next stitch. * Work 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in first chain stitch, skip 2 stitches, 1 single crochet in next stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the previous round. Cut and fasten the strand.

Tack a strand around the whole of the top row of single crochets and tighten so that the basket has a nice shape, tie and fasten the strand.

Det ville være fantastisk med den hele opskrift (altså uden diagram), da jeg overhovedet ikke fatter diagrammer. :(

Sehr geehrtes Team, Danke für Ihre Antwort zum Video. Mir würde helfen wenn ich die Beschreibung 2fach und dreifach Stäbchen besser verstehen würde. Besonders verstehe ich nicht so genau wo in die vorhandenen festen Maschen eingestochen wird, um den Faden zu holen und durch wieviele auf der Nadel bestehenden Schlingen, der Arbeitsfaden gezogen wird. Ansonsten eine sehr schöne Idee. Danke

Liebe Frau Hediger, hier wird keine 2fach noch 3fach Stäbchen gehäkelt, nur 2 Stb zusammen und 3 Stb zusammen (siehe passenden Video beim Klicken auf jede Name). Die Reihe mit 75 feste Maschen ist dann mit 1 fM in jeder Maschen der vorrigen Runde + 1 Zunahme dazu gehäkelt. Und am Ende wird der Faden einfach mit einer Nähnadel in diese fM Runde gefädelt (damit die Seiten vom Körbchen etwas fester sind). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Wird das Anleitungsvideo nicht mit deutscher Sprache angeboten?

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 11:56:

Liebe Frau Hediger, Unsere Videos haben keinen Ton. Wir sind ein weltweites Unternehmen und die Videos werden von Leuten der verschiedensten Muttersprachen angeschaut, von denen viele nicht deutsch sprechen. Wir haben daher schriftliche Erklärungen, die die Videos begleiten und Sie werden beim Anschauen des Videos nicht durch Geräusche gestört. Viel Spass!

I can't figure out how to add a pattern to Favourites - despite instructions, I can't see the relevant button !

DROPS Design 06.02.2019 kl. 09:02:

Dear Marion, the "Add to Favourites" button is just between the yarn/needles and "Pattern instructions", ie after the button to print pattern and photo. Click on that button and add your e-mail to save it in your favourites. Happy crocheting!
