Notes:

  1. Basket is worked in continuous rounds (spiral), from the base upwards.
  2. Scarf, nose, and eyes are worked separately and sewn to basket. Mouth is embroidered onto basket.
  3. Basket is worked with 4 strands of yarn held together. Scarf is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together. Nose and eyes are worked with a single strand of yarn.
  4. To make it easier to wind yarn into the correct number of balls for scarf and basket, work the scarf first then wind all the remaining C-colored yarn into 4 separate, equal size balls and work the basket.
  5. To change yarn color, work laststitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
