    This pattern shows you how to knit a basket with thick cotton rope, where to get the materials, and how to alter the dimensions to make baskets in different sizes and shapes.

    Difficulty: Easy. The pattern uses a basic garter stitch. And because the rope is so thick, you only need a few stitches per row!

    You can always use the pattern as a starting point and substitute your own materials. I've seen people make these out of old climbing rope or other types of rope/cord.
