I found a pattern for a soft basket and thought it would be a nice present filled with squishy balls, just right for my younger one as she is on her move exploring the world and emptying any container she finds. Not so sure did I do it right though, it really lacks the structure – ok, maybe I expect too much of it 🙂 I just hope it will look better once filled 😀
I got the pattern from another book (More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson and Anna Williams), and used patton’s DK 100% cotton for it (made a large one). It says that it is an 4-hour project but I didn’t measure the time needed (it was more like whenever I get a minute free). Could taken me anything between 4 and 8 hours I guess! I’ve decided to put the ribbing into a different colour and then (as I was doing it) just felt like it needs a stripe of original colour in 😀 Well, picture is here and hope to update it soon with some squishy balls inside!
