Crochet tutorial of a miniature basket.

If you are a miniature crochet lover, like me, this pattern is for you!

I’ll show you how to crochet a simple small basket with two side handles and one center handle.

I thought of making this tutorial, to combine it with an amigurumi bunny, with chocolate eggs inside the basket, to give at Easter to my kids!

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).

Work 1 SC in each stitches around and finish the basket crocheting the Crab stitch.
