– You can use any type of yarn as long as you have a corresponding crochet hook size (check yarn label for recommendations). 

– You can make the pattern larger or smaller by changing the yarn weight and/or hook size.  You could also increase the number of rounds in the base of the pattern to make a larger basket. Follow these instructions on how to crochet a flat circle to get the correct number of increases per round.

– Numbers at the end of each round (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that round

–  This pattern is worked in continuous rounds.

– Move your stitch marker to the first stitch of each round to keep track of your stitches.

– Please note that I use US crochet terms.
