These reversible baskets are a great way to try out Fair Isle Crochet. Using medium worsted weight yarn, you can start with the small leaf basket to get your feet wet and eventually move on to the large owl basket when you’re ready.
Not only are these baskets cute, but they are practical. You can reverse from pattern to a solid color by simply flipping them inside out.
Never tried Fair Isle Crochet? Don’t worry, the pattern comes with a photo tutorial section and you can watch my free video tutorials on the subject whenever you like.
Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. The photo tutorials include:
Color Changing throughout the beanie including at the round join. Catching the yarn to create short floats. How to keep your yarn untangled. How to keep your seam straight on your basket.
