This pattern can also be used as a recipe if you don’t want them exactly the same size/shape. To make it larger: Add 1 sc between each increase for each new row in the flat circle.

Decreases: If you don’t want it to decrease in the top and instead keep it flat, end it before the increases.

Handle: If you want to have a handle, ch more than 4 and sl st in the opposite side. Get rid of the handle altogether if you want it to!

    Just found this pattern. So easy to follow.

    If I want a more open/hanging pod, more like the first picture,what should I do?

    Hi, i really like this pattern but I don´t understand when to begin the increases if I want it bigger… can you tell me, which round should be? thanks!!

    Like others I was hoping this was for the first basket pictured. Although I like my basket and the instructions were pretty clear ( stitch count helps us noobs) mine came out more like the second picture.

      The first basket pictured looks like has a cinched ribbon or tie around the handle, drawing that side together more. Maybe cinch around your handle to see if it makes the basket shaped more like a teardrop than a circle? Cheers!
