With two strands of yarn join yarn on top of basket (you can pick the position as long as its even) and chain 4 onto basket.
Row 1: Chain 2, Turn, DC in the next 4 ST.
Row 2-15: Repeat Row 1
Join onto other end of basket with (4) Sl ST to form the handle and fasten off securely. To finish weave in loose ends with a yarn needle.
Finished Size is Approximately a 22 Inch Circumference and 7 Inch Length without the handles.
Now fill your crochet gift basket with whatever you choose (keeping in mind this will not hold a bowling ball).
