Pattern featured in issue 69 of Inside Crochet magazine.

● Wool And The Gang Jersey Be Good, 98% cotton/2% elastane, 500g/99m/108yds
Yarn A: Peach Sorbet x 1 spool
Yarn B: Shiitake Mushroom x 1 spool
Yarn C: Golden Compass x 1 spool
(This yarn is made of factory off-cuts so available colours change often – just choose three shades you like!)
● 9mm hook
● Yarn needle
● Stitch marker

Any super chunky yarn will work here. A yarn can even be made from old t-shirts – simply cut in a spiral, making a long strip approximately 2cm/¾in wide.

Exact tension is not essential here. Ensure work is tightly crocheted to make for a stable basket.

Baskets measure approximately 20 (25, 30)cm/8 (9¾, 11¾)in in diameter.
