For the last two evenings I've been working on a small Easter Basket, just big enough to hold a chocolate egg, and it turned out horrible!! It is so tiny and I even added rows. Before you ask, no, I did not do a swatch. I know, I know. I am slapping my own hands for that one!
Anyway, I bought a skein of Pale Yellow Red Heart Super Saver yarn because I was going to do several of these. The pattern calls for a size 2 needle and has been suggested to me that if I go with a larger needle, the basket wouldn't probably stand on its own. It would be too soft. I don't want this yarn to go to waste and I would like to make something. I'm thinking of maybe going up to a size 3 or 4 needle, at the biggest and doing a swatch this time, or maybe just chucking that whole idea and doing something different. Do you think going up just a couple needle sizes will make it too soft to stand on it's own or should I try to find something else to do?
