Large Basket with a Handle
CMC Cordonnet, No. 20
Steel Crochet Hook, No. 9
This is a rather large crochet basket, measuring 4 1/2 inches in diameter and 5 1/2 inches tall, handle and all, while the basket part is about 2 inches tall. The handle is in the form of a beading and a colored ribbon is strung through. A lining of the same color would add to the effectiveness.
To stiffen basket, dip with sugar water made in the proportion of 1 spoonful of sugar to 2 spoonfuls of water and pull into shape over a form; a glass of anything the desired size will do.
