Felted Nantasket basket new pic added

Felted Nantasket Basket #1. This one is made with Moda- Dea Cache and a pattern from The Knitting Zone… I made the handles on the sides 6 inches instead of 4 to 5 inches, won’t do that again… Making them for Easter, filling them up for the neighbors.

Too bad I’m not your neighbor! I love it!

Your neighbors! :shock: Wow…you must have some wonderful neighbors! The basket is gorgeous!

Why Miss Kittie it is marvellous!! What a lovely gift!

What beautiful baskets!!! I have a question for you. If I am doing Version I without a contrasting color why do I have to use a contrasting color for the end of the base?

Attach a double strand of Color B and knit 5 rounds. On the sixth round, *pick up the back loop of the stitch from the first round you knit with Color B and place it on the left needle. Knit this loop together with the stitch on the needle; repeat from * to the end of the round.
Is it so I can see what loop to pick up? If so can I use any Color B because it won’t show?

Thank you.

:cheering: :cheering: I love, love your baskets…I may have to make one after seeing yours :smiley:

Oooh so pretty.

My Nana and I bond over my knitting and she would love one of those (to store some of her vast quilting fabrics!). Is that a free pattern you could link? Or maybe even a link to where I’d find it if it’s a pay pattern?

Thanks!

On the first one I just marked the first row with contrasting yarn so I could see where the row was to pick up for the rim…
Or just count down 5 rows…

The Knitting Zone. just click on patterns, by type,felting, page 5 about half way down the page. They have a buch of different basket.

I’ve been wanting to make that for some time … yours are beautiful!
I love the blue combination. Really nice work.

Thank you so much Miss Kittie!!! I understand now. I frogged the whole basket last night because I was so frustrated!!! :frowning: But I will start again tonight.
