Mini Baskets

 And another Easter pattern moved over from my old blog: Mini Baskets!




Original post from April 20414:
I got the idea to make mini baskets from my friend Sheri of Frogging Along. She sent me a picture of a basket she WIPped up and I FELL IN LOVE! After making several using her pattern the idea to put little treats (non-food) in them and leave them around town for people to find came to me. I have heard of this done with other objects and have always loved the idea!!! And with Easter coming up, it's just perfect timing. But I decided that I would like more than one type of basket, so I designed a few myself.
Thank you Sheri for the inspiration! And for everyone else, definitely go and check out her
Mini Treat Basket...it is so stinkin' cute!

And now for my versions:

The basket pictured above reminds me of a vase or a flower pot. I'm not sure, but it makes me think flowers!

MATERIALS NEEDED (For both versions):
Worsted Weight 100% cotton (although any WW Yarn would work)
I Hook
Yarn Needle

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Magic Ring, 8 hdc in ring
2. 2 hdc arnd (16) (Pull ring closed)
3. *2 hdc, hdc* arnd (24)
4. In BLO: *2 hdc, sk 1* arnd, join with sl st, ch 1 (24)
5-9. In Back Bar Only (3rd loop): *2 hdc, sk 1* arnd, join with sl st, ch 1 (24)
10. *sc, ch 1* in each st around (DO NOT FASTEN), Ch 16, sl st to opposite side, sc back across ch and sl st to beginning ch. Fasten.



I loved how Sheri's basket was rounded, so I decided to come up with one that was rounded but still had a little texture. This reminds me of a cauldron or pot o' gold!

2. 2 hdc arnd (16) (Pull ring closed)
