Glowing Embers Basket Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern #: LW4265
Designed by: Vicki Blizzard

Skill Level: Easy

Move your yarn from bags to this crocheted basket and it will become a colorful room accent rather than clutter! We love the way the two yarn colors are used for the shaded modern look.

Materials:
RED HEART® Super Saver®: 2 skeins 400 Gray Heather A and 1 skein 726 Coral B
Note: Although RED HEART® Soft® is shown in the photograph, it was not used to crochet this project.
Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 8mm [US L-11]
Yarn needle
Stitch marker

Gauge/Tension:     GAUGE: Rounds 1–5 = 4¼” (11 cm). CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Basket measures 7½” (19 cm) high x 13½” (34.5 cm) diameter across bottom.

Special Stitch
sc2tog = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Notes
1. Basket is made in continuous rounds (spiral) with right side facing. Do not join rounds until instructed.
2. Wind each skein into 3 balls of equal size before beginning. Hold 3 strands of yarn together throughout.
3. Place marker for beginning of round and move marker up as each round is completed.
4. Changing one strand of color as instructed creates ember motif. Drop and cut indicated strand at end of round; pick up new color and hold with remaining 2 strands.
