FELTED BASKET – english pattern


‘Felted basket’ is a playful pattern to enjoy felting yarn. Starts by casting on stitches for the round bottom and knit symmetrical increases to achieve the desired size. Then you’ll knit a folded hem that will add stability to the piece. Keep knitting in the round until you reach the desired length. Right at the end you’ll knit a folded hem but this one is not sewn. You can add some embroidery as a custom final detail. This pattern includes 7 easy embroidery tutorials + another video for the knitted hem. You will also find 3 mini guides at the end of the pattern: one for knitting with unspun yarn, another one for start working with dpns, and the last one with instructions for felting with your washing machine.
