The pattern is written in US crochet
terminology.

It's an intermediate-level project that requires experience with front post double crochet, and back post double crochet stitches.

If you're new to crocheting or not sure how to do front and back post-double crochets yet, we recommend watching some tutorials on YouTube before attempting this project.

This mini basket holds candy or any other small items, a great little basket to give as a gift. It would also be good for holding sewing supplies, or other small things that are not too
heavy.

Completing each basket involves two sections, making the basket and then the handle.

The written instructions start with the basket and follow with the handle instructions, the basket is completed by joining the handle to the basket rim using a yarn needle and leftover
yarn.

Finally, working in the ends will complete the construction process, with this simple technique, you can create beautiful pieces of art that will last for a long time.

Any yarn type can be used for this project like cotton, bamboo, hemp, or acrylic.
The list of yarns used in the sample is listed under the material section.

Glossary, References, Techniques

This pattern is written and charted using standard US crochet terminology.

Techniques used:

The pattern starts off with a magic ring and is worked in the round, in general, chain 1 is required after completing a round, when using the same yarn and color for the next round, if it is your choice to change color, then in general, you would join with a slip stitch on top of starting chain stitch after the last stitch is worked for the round.

Working in ends as you go is my best practice, but it's all up to you and your choice when completing a project.
