Hanging basketPATTERN TRANSLATION AND TUTORIAL
We are back with another pattern translation. This time the pattern is a basket I made a few months ago and that caught people’s eye because of its Green pistachio color. I must say the pattern is in easy level and it’s really simple to do because the only “weird” stitch is the crab stitch. I’m leaving a useful link below where you can learn how to do it.
The yarn I chose for the hanging basket and that lately I’m using for doing more things that you will see in the future (*secret*) it’s the Katia Big Ribbon, 1 skein for this basket.
It’s really soft and stretchy, a little like spaguetti yarn but not exactly the same. I must say this yarn is my favorite so far and I’m planning to fill my house with things made of Big Ribbon (poor Technologic Arachnid u.u).
And as unrelated news, I’m announcing two new sections on my blog and you can see them up there(↗). There is Shop where you can have access to my Etsy listings (if you don’t know what is Etsy, please look here) and Patterns where you can see an index of my translated or original patterns.
So, without further ado, here it is the pattern that I translated with permission of Rebekka Bjarnoll (original pattern).
Since it doesn’t make any sense to write a Spanish version in the English version of the blog, I will leave the pdf in case anyone is interested. Also, you can check the English version here.
