Honeycomb Pop Basket
his quirky basket is worked in the round from the bottom up. You can customise it to your preferred size by working more or less rounds of the base.
The sides of the basket are made nice and firm by using a combination of post stitches in a honeycomb pattern, and a popcorn stitch at the centre of each popcorn.
If you’ve tried Diamond Trellis Basket then you’ll find this pattern even easier, and fun for using up left over stash too!
You will need super chunky yarn and a 7mm hook. Example used 265m Erika Knight’s Super Chunky (label suggests size 10mm hook).
Alternatively, hold several strands of yarn together and make sure you use a smaller hook than normal – so that the basket is nice and stiff.
Example is 11 inches across – but you can customise yours to your preferred size.
Gauge is not critical for this project – the main thing is to use a smaller hook size than your yarn label, or hold several strand of yarn together for a nice stiff basket.
The sides are made using a combination of post stitches and popcorn stitch.
