This is a sturdy basket made up of flat pieces crocheted together and features a textured pattern in three colours. It measures 30 x 28 x 15cm and all four sides and the base are lined with fabric and also with plastic canvas to make it strong.

Although the yarn I have used is called a DK weight yarn, at 104m / 50g I think it is nearer aran weight. You will need 150g of this or a similar yarn in the main colour and 100g in each of two other colours.

This pattern uses British crochet terms.
