Wicker baskets are an excellent option for storing various trifles. But no less attractive will look a basket, crocheted from knitting yarn.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
Depending on the size, the amount of yarn will vary. For knitting choose hook number 7.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
It starts from the bottom. Make a sliding loop.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
Tie seven crochets into the formed ring. Tighten the loop so that the hole is not visible. Complete all rows with a connecting loop.
The next row is connected with two columns without single crochet. The third with the addition of a column through one loop. Every second loop is knitted with two single crochets. In the fourth row, the addition is done on every third loop, in the fifth for every fourth, in the sixth for every fifth, etc. until you get the right diameter.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
To hide the free end, take the hook of a smaller diameter and pull it through the adjacent loops. Remove excess.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
To finish knitting, enter the back of the hook, grab the loop and pull it to the wrong side.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
To secure the sides, make an air loop, enter the hook into the same loop and output through the next one. Grab the thread and crochet the crochet. So the entire perimeter of the bottom is connected.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
To start knitting with magnificent columns, make an air loop, skip one loop, tie the next column to the next one. Next, enter the hook into the missed loop, pull the thread, put the hook over the hook, re-enter the same loop, pull the thread, put the hook over the hook, enter the hook into the loop and pull the thread. Knit all the loops on the hook.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
After that, skipping one loop, tie a single crochet. Further repeat the scheme above, passing through the passed loop.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
At the end of the row, when closing, you can use a different color of yarn or make the basket one-color. Repeat the knitting pattern above.Youtube | Oksana HandMade
When finished, strengthen the walls. Tie stitches around the circle. Thread trimming stretch through the lush posts to hide.
