Repeat from 1st to 8th round to make a second circle, and sew it on the bottom of the basket.
Finished the 8th round, make 1 SL ST in the next stitch and cut the yarn, leaving a long tail, use it to sew.
Pass the thread between the back loop stitch of the circle you just made and in the stitch of the 9th round of the basket (i.e. the round where you worked the back loop only).

Follow the explanation of the previous basket from 1st to 4th round.

Start making the central handles of the basket: make 10 CHs and 1 SC in each CH to return on the base of the basket.
Work 1 SC in each stitches around and finish the basket crocheting the Crab stitch.
Close with 1 SL ST and cut the yarn, leave a long tail and use it to sew one side of the handles on the opposite side of the basket.
