Finished Dimensions are approximately a 13 Inch Circumference and 5 Inch Height.
Cut a 24 Inch Piece of Yarn with Scissors
Attach yarn to yarn needle
Weave in yarn completely around basket along top of Single Crochet round (see picture)
Pull yarn through as you are weaving it around until you are left with about 1 inch of space between yarn ends. (See picture)
Tie a bow and cut ends if you choose. It really depends on how long you want your bow.
The basket could also be easily cinched closed to hide gifts and make gift giving even more fun than it already is!
I ended up trimming the ends of the bow to make it a little shorter.
Which way do you prefer?
I actually love it both ways! I like the fact that without the bow you can see the awesome crisscross pattern, but with it you can cinch the basket closed and hide away whatever you are giving! To… many… choices…
