Crochet Marled Basket
The Marled Basket is using Caron Big Cakes. The basket is super easy. It is about 12″ diameter by 12″ tall.
It uses 2 balls of Caron Big Cakes. You have two choices for using 2 strands together. For the basket shown here, it’s my own sample and I used two different colours of Caron Big Cakes at the same time. It was 1 ball of Blue Macaron and Blueberry Scone. It is a pure fluke it matched my bedspread. With crochet marl, you never know how it will look until you do it. This is what makes it fun for me.
Grab the ends from the two balls and crochet them together.

Grab the end from the one ball, then the other end from the same ball. This will use the same ball to do both strands. I demonstrate that in the tutorial below.
For me, I did Choice #2 to create my own version. There is a beautiful advantage in doing Choice 2 and I explain that in the tutorial below.
