This pattern shows you how to knit a basket with thick cotton rope, where to get the materials, and how to adapt the pattern to make baskets in different sizes and shapes. The large basket is approximately 11-12 inches tall and 13 inches in diameter. The medium is 9x9 inches and the small is 8x8 inches. Once you know your gauge it’s easy to adapt your basket to different shapes.

I also sell kits to make these baskets at and I teach in-person classes in the Bay Area. Check my web site, for updates.
