Retro-inspired flowers adorn four small nesting baskets measuring from 3 to 8 inches across. All are crocheted in worsted-weight yarn -- using one to four strands -- to create the graduated sizes.

This is a quick and easy pattern; it takes about an hour to complete one basket and two flowers. All the baskets are made with the same pattern. Gauge varies according to hook size used and the number of strands of yarn.

YARN
NOTES: Sample baskets are crocheted in Red Heart Super Saver in Aran. Heavy worsted acrylic yarns with body, such as Red Heart Super Saver, are recommended for these baskets.
