Pattern description from Mason-Dixon Knitting: “You can purchase a Moses basket at most baby furnishings stores. Make sure that the basket does not have an attached hood. This basket that came with simple, white cotton padding inside and over the top edge, which was ideal for supporting the knitted lining. Choose a basket that does not have ruffles or other embellishments that will prevent the lining from lying smoothly.”

Notions: Approx 1/2 yd (0.5 m) of cotton fabric (for bottom of the basket; you may be able to use the fabric liner that comes with the basket; stitch markers in 3 colors or types.
