Here’s what you will need:

  • 2 colors worsted weight yarn, approximately 216 yds each (shown here in Berroco Remix in the colorways Smoke 3930 and Old Jeans 3927)
  • H hook
  • scissors and yarn needle

Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.

 

Finished sizes measure approximately 5 in. diameter × 2½ in. tall (small), 5½ in. diameter × 2¾ in. tall (medium), 6¼ in. diameter × 3¼ in. tall (large).

 

Notes: I prefer starting rounds with a ch-1 followed by the first st of the round because I feel it leaves a less obvious “seam”; however, if you prefer the more traditional ch-2 start, count the ch-2 as a stitch and use it in place of the ch-1 and the first hdc (end of round stitch counts should remain the same). 

For more clarification and photos of working in the “third loop” of half double crochets, please see here.

Two strands of yarn in coordinating colors are worked together throughout.

    I purchased the Chunky Nesting Baskets pattern as a kit quite a while back but am just now attempting to crochet the baskets. I’m starting with the large basket first and noticed what appears to be a typo on round 8. The instructions appear to be the same as for round 7 but the total stitches should equal 64. Shouldn’t the instructions be to:

    Ch 1, work 2 hdc in same st as join, 1 hdc in each of the next 6 sts, *2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in each of the next 6 sts, rep from * around, join and turn — 64 sts.

    I came back to your site and didn’t notice a correction so thought I should post a reply.
    You have some wonderful designs and I really enjoy your newsletters sharing your patterns.
    Thanks for all of your creative designs.
