|Here are a couple of variations that can be achieved from the basic kit.
A sheet of ideas is included in each kit.
|Pink handle basket
The large oval basket was created by painting the base pink and using pink crochet cotton, one wire from either side was bent across and yarn-wrapped to create the handle.
The large oval base is no longer available, but this basket could be done on the small oval base.
|Shaped handle basket
This fancy shaped basket was created with a small round base.
After approximately 10 rows the wires were splayed outwards and weaving continued creating the "flared" effect.
|Waste paper basket
The waste paper basket was created using small round base with gaps left for a less solid effect.
The dog basket was created, with an oval base kit, by weaving the yarn back on itself after about 6 plain rows creating an ever-increasing gap.
