·         8 mm crochet hook or L hook

·         Yarn made out of 2 of grandma’s nightgown


Pattern:



Basket
In Magic circle double crochet stitch 12 times,

Row 2 – do 2 dc stitches in each chain.

Row 3 – do 2 dc in first stitch then 1 dc in next 1 stitch.

Row 4 - do 1 dc in every back loop (ran out of yarn…fastened on new yarn)

Row 5 - do 1 dc in every back loop (continue this pattern until desired height. 


Lid
In Magic circle double crochet stitch 12 times,
Row 2 – do 2 dc stitches in each chain.
Row 3 – do 2 dc in first stitch then 1 dc in next 1 stitch. 
Row 4 – do 2 dc in first stitch then 1 dc in next 2 stitches.  
Row 4 – do 2 dc in first stitch then 1 dc in next 3 stitches.   
I used up the trim of one of the nightgowns to make a pompom by just cutting it into small pieces and tying it together. 
*It's very easy to give the lid shape while still using the same stitch count by doing looser and tighter stitches.
