I'm still working on a custom order of Minion hats and a Toronto Maple Leaf Pocket Bunny. She told me when she can pick up, and it's not for a week...so I've procrastinated on the finishing LOL. I decided to make Megan (my youngest, who's a bit of a hoarder), a crocheted basket. I have a few skeins of this awful, old, Mary Maxim yarn. Very bulky, very acrylic, very retro. Yellow, orange, white and brown. Oh yeah, baby. Just like my kitchen in the '70s!
I had trouble with the base, it seemed to be curling up so I increased more than usual for a crocheted circle. But then, once done, it seems like it's bulging. Should have been more patient and trusted the math. I just worked random colours, double stranded. The last two rounds were single crochet instead of half double crochet because I wanted to finish off with two strands of orange and was running low.
