An easy, multi-use little basket that is ideal for those chocolates during festive times, for Easter eggs, could hold little baubles on your table..a whole load of possibilities.
The pattern is worked in rounds from the bottom up and we work the ‘handle’ continuously without the worry of weaving too many ends.
