This is an Intermediate to Advanced crochet pattern, not recommended for novice or beginner crocheters.
Work involves stitch tension management, coil tension management, working with multiple colors, working tight stitches, and frequent color changes.
Sturdiness and durability of this geometric crochet basket is the result of combining coiled crochet technique with a tight waistcoat stitch.
If you have never crocheted over a coil, I recommend getting yourself acquainted with coiled crochet technique first.
