Shaping The Basket:
Fold the top of your basket down at round 9 where your stitch marker is. Round 13 should be at the bottom touching the inside base of the basket. Smooth out your edges and shape if needed.

Your basket is complete! Some ideas for use are:
– Bedside basket (lip balm, hair elastics, hair clips)
– Bathroom counter (dental floss, small container of hand lotion, tissues, face scrubbies, small make up containers or sponges)
– Storage for small toys or small toy accessories
– Holiday treats and goodies
– Crochet items like small scissors, yarn needles, stitch markets, tape measure, etc.
– Desk organization (paper clips, push pins, small memo pads)
