WHAT YOU WILL NEED
G Crochet Hook (See note on gauge)
Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Weight Yarn: About 50 yards of White, 75 yards of Cherry Red, 150 yards of Blue Suede. If substituting yarn, avoid soft yarn or the basket will be floppy.
Stitch markers (optional but useful)
Tapestry Needle to weave in ends and attach Stars.
SKILL LEVEL: Advanced Beginner– some experience helpful.
GAUGE: Gauge is not important for this project. In Half Double Crochet, 4 rows and 7 stitches equal about 2” – when working the base, each round adds about 1” to the diameter. In the pattern repeat, each cluster is about 1”.
