EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

CROCHET INFO:
The first double crochet at the beginning of each round is replaced by 1 chain stitch, the round ends with 1 slip stitch in this chain stitch. 
Although not described every time in the text, each round begins and finishes in this way. 

DOUBLE STRAND TIP: 
Use the strand from both the inside and outside of the ball. When changing to a new ball, it is best not to change both strands at the same time - this avoids the strand-fastenings being thick.

BASKET- SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The basket is worked in the round, from middle of the bottom and upwards. The whole basket is worked in 2 strands.

BOTTOM:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 6 mm and 2 strands Paris; form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Read CROCHET INFO and DOUBLE STRAND TIP, see descriptions above. 
ROUND 1: Work 6 double crochets around the ring
ROUND 2: Work 2 double crochets in each double crochet = 12 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 = 18 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 4: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 double crochets, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 24 double crochets.
Continue working double crochets in the round, increasing 6 double crochets on each round; i.e. on each round you work 1 more double crochet between each increase. When the bottom measures approx. 18 cm in diameter work the sides of the basket as described below (without cutting the strands).

SIDES:
Continue working in the round, but without increasing until the height of the basket is approx. 8 cm.

EDGE IN LOBSTER STITCH:
Work an edge around the top of the basket with lobster stitch (lobster stitch = work double crochets from left to right). Cut and fasten the strands.
