This basket is fun to make! 

So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this OWL BASKET.

The pattern was made with yarns: SpagoYarn Chain, 500g / 85m, 85% cotton, 15% polyester, 6mm, https://www.vlnika.cz/z17500-prize-chain

SpagoYarn Chain is quite strong braided twine cotton yarn, very pleasant and very soft.
This yarn is perfect for crocheting accessories, home decorations, wall hangings, also for baskets, handbags and bags. 



For this pattern you will need 8.00 mm crochet hook.

Sewing/Embroidery and yarn needle/tapestry needle 



Size: one size 

Difficulty Level: Level 1 – Easy, for beginners

US crochet terms:

SlSt – slip stitch
CH/s – chain/s
SC - single crochet
HDC - half double crochet
DC - double crochet

SK - skip
T - turn
ST/s - stitch(es)
REP – repeat

This pattern requires familiarity with stitches used and using invisible join when you work in closed rounds. 



1) A ch1 at beg of the row DOESN'T count as a stitch

2) Continuous rounds - this basket is worked up in continuous rounds, which means that you will not be joining the last stitch of the round with the first one. Instead you will need to keep track of where each round started and how many stitches you have made because after each round you will continue right on to the stitches of the next round (with no join). It is useful to use a stitch marker or piece of yarn to mark the start or end of each round.

3) Invisible Join - I would recommend you to close the rounds with an invisible join to have a perfect basket. 

4) ( ) – The number of stitches that should be in a completed round/row are placed in brackets at the end of that round’s/row’s instructions.

5) This CROCHET BASKET is worked up as a one piece, starting from the bottom to top and then top down to the bottom. 

8) SIZE: this is one size pattern
bottom base: 15 cm
length: 15 mm
