The basket is double stranded to create a marled look for yarn. The video below shows you how I use the outside of the cake and inside at the same time to double strand my project.

This project is inspired by the Marled Basket using Caron Big Cakes. Instead of creating a rotational stepping look, I was inspired by the bead stitch and clusters to create the look. The basket is 11″ x 5.5″ tall.

I blocked my basket and sprayed it was starch for finishing touches. It’s now great for a coffee table accessory or storage container that is handmade by you.

    I’m quite confused… the photo only has one row of bead stitch but the instructions have two rows of bead stitch. What am I missing? Thanks!

    Thank you for the Fancy Crochet Basket pattern. Mine will not be as pretty because my Michaels does not have the new yarn in. I look forward to trying it and the yarn that I will use. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into keeping the Crochet Crowd web site up and going.
