The Perfect Whirl basket came to live when I wanted a basket to have my Whirl skeins in to avoid the yarn to tangle. The basket is crocheted with single crochets (US terms) and slip stitches with two different thicknesses of cotton yarn.

For the body of the basket I used Scheepjes Cahlista which is an un-mercerized thicker cotton yarn and for the slip stitches I used Scheepjes Catona which is a thinner mercerized cotton yarn with a beautiful sheen. The slip stitches not only give the basket a nice look but also makes it extra sturdy.

I have made the basket in three different sizes using different numbers of threads and the size of the medium basket fits a Whirl skein perfectly.
