This is an Intermediate to Advanced crochet pattern.
Work involves stitch tension management, coil tension management, working with multiple colors, working tight stitches, and frequent color changes.
This pattern is not recommended for beginner crocheters.
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. My Coiled Crochet Baskets with Handles (Pattern 305) would be a great place to start. Add it to your purchase, and get both patterns for only $4; that is 75% off on both patterns! Simply use coupon code LEARN2COIL309 at checkout. Note: Discount will only be applied if both Pattern 305 and Pattern 309 (the pattern you are currently viewing) are in cart.
