Felted Nantasket Basket #1. This one is made with Moda- Dea Cache and a pattern from The Knitting Zone.. I made the handles on the sides 6 inches instead of 4 to 5 inches, won't do that again... Making them for Easter, filling them up for the neighbors.

What beautiful baskets!!! I have a question for you. If I am doing Version I without a contrasting color why do I have to use a contrasting color for the end of the base? Attach a double strand of Color B and knit 5 rounds. On the sixth round, *pick up the back loop of the stitch from the first round you knit with Color B and place it on the left needle. Knit this loop together with the stitch on the needle; repeat from * to the end of the round. Is it so I can see what loop to pick up? If so can I use any Color B because it won't show?

Thank you.

Is your kitty going with them? It might blow the whole "Easter Bunny" thing... you could knit some ears...

Oooh so pretty.

My Nana and I bond over my knitting and she would love one of those (to store some of her vast quilting fabrics!). Is that a free pattern you could link? Or maybe even a link to where I'd find it if it's a pay pattern?

Thanks!

Thank you. On the first one I just marked the first row with contrasting yarn so I could see where the row was to pick up for the rim..
Or just count down 5 rows...
