This felted fair-isle basket will brighten your home while also being a very useful basket to keep your project, yarn or needles in. Sized to fit a standard round powder-room wastebasket (approx. 25” diameter and 9” height), this fun project is a wonderful project for newbie color-work knitters. You need 200 yards of two colors. The sample used KP’s Wool of the Andes

Note: you must be able to:
* follow a color-work chart
* knit with two colors of yarn in each row
* knit in the round
All of these skills are necessary for learning to knit fair-isle. The felting process helps cover minor mistakes and uneven tension -- making the final project a work of art that will last for years to come.
