1. Introduction: Hi, I'm Shah. I'm an artist designer and doodle Adelaide and design closure buttons for jewelry, home decor and more. I've been rushing or a 125 years now, microtia designs, I have a range from traditional, ultra modern, abstract and geometrical designs. In this class, I will show you how to make around closure basket to organize your home. What this project you need to know the basics of OCI, That is how to hold a crochet hook and yarn. And also some of the basic stitches like the gym stitch, the single crochet, double crochet slip stitch. Even if you do not know them, you can go and watch my previous class that is string and we do things how to crochet a flower garden. And for absolute beginners in that glass, I have covered all the basics of pollution. The doors required for this class is a minimum crochet hook and a t-shirt yarn. Before we dive into the actual class project, let me give you a glimpse of the course you want that I do. In this class, I'll show you how to make a few grocery basket to organize their home that is embellished with a jumble going to fly. In the next video, I will demonstrate the class project in detail. I'll see you in the first lesson. 2. Class project: So today in this class I'm going to teach you how to make this organism. This is a very easy to maintain washable, multipurpose stories that can be used to store n number of things like small toys. Do your makeup products. For making this basket. I've used three colors in deshielding on beach. Lemon, yellow, and pink. If you want, you can use more number of colors or you can make them dieting and single color. If you prefer more subtle colors, you can have new drugs. If you want, you can go for a combination of bright colors. It is entirely up to you. I've also used this flower to decorate the basket. This is avoidable if you don't like it, you can avoid it and make a plain simple basket. Or if you want, you can design your own motive to decorate the basket bit, or you can have some ready-made embellishments if you don't want to crochet another part for that. This class is not for absolute beginners. That means if you want to make this, you should know the basics of crochet. That is, how to hold a grocer who call to hold the yarn. And also some basic stitches like the single crochet, double crochet chain slip stitch. That's it. The basket just uses the basic stitches. You don't need to know any under specific stitch. And also you don't need to be an advanced level crochet or even if you are a beginner and you know the basic stitches, you know how to do that, then you can easily make the basket following the video step-by-step. If you can't get access to the T-shirt yarn, don't stress out you can even do the project in any super bulky or bulky yarn. You just need to adjust the hook size and the texture and the loop would be slightly different than what you can see in the sample here. But that also works great. So let us quickly dive into the project and start learning how to make it. 3. Material required: Before we start with the project, let us quickly glance at Waterloo material you'll be needing. For this project. I have used three colors of tissue. Dionne. Dionne can be brought from the store if you want, you can make your own as well. You just need to cut all T-Shirt into all into one inch strips and join them together. For this particular basket that we are making, we are, I'm using 25 meters in each color that is a total of 75 meters. So if you are making it on your own, make sure that you measure it properly so that you don't fall short of yarn. Mit project have enough yarn or I would advise that you use a little extra only so that you can easily finish the project. If you don't want to get into the hassle of making your own dish at yarn. It is a good option to buy from the market readymade, but I am using is a 100 percent cotton yarn. You can also go for the synthetic ones that also do just fine. And the bass guitar completely washable doesn't matter if you make them with cotton or with a synthetic fiber. Along with that, you'll need crochet hook. That is a nine MM crochet hook. It is not necessary to go for a nine MM only you can increase or decrease the size is size of the hooks like d, whatever you are more comfortable with. You can have a six MM crochet or you can also have a bruit and MM. It is actually a good idea to have a smaller hooks so that the basket holds its shape properly. But if you are more comfortable, if you are a very tight crucial, then I would advise you to go for a bigger book. And if you're crochet loosely, then it is better that you go for a smaller book says, along the degrowth, you are going to need Dunning needle. It has to be a big needle so that you can easily thread the tissue, the Android, because this is what you are going to use when you'll be finishing the basket, that is for weaving in the ends. Along with this, you'll also need a pair of scissors. It has to be pointy and sharp so that you don't free the t-shirt yarn. Why you got it? That is all the material that will be required to make it. Now let us start with the project. 4. First half of the base: So now that you have gathered all the tools and materials that are required for the project. Let us start making the basket. Then start making it with a magic ring. So just wrap the yarn around, dwarf your fingers like this. Take the hook from under the false loop and pull out the back loop. Now, take a yarn over and pull through the loop bundle. That is a slip stitch, and you have a magic ring made. Now the first one will be made inside the string. So the first one will be on double crochets. So we didn't make chain 3 to start with the round. Now make 11 double crochets into the magic ring that you have just made. To make 11 double crochets in the magic ring. Continue making. Make sure that you make will be the three things that you have made that you'll be making will become. Now just to be sure, let us count that we have 12 stitches. Okay, I have 12. Now I'll close the magic ring for that. Just pull this spinning tail of yarn as tightly as possible. Bullet close so that there's no gap at the center. Once done, we'll finish the round by making a slip stitch in Todd of the fascial three chains that we made. You'll be making a slip stitch in the third chain of the first three genes that we mean that is the top chain. This make a slip stitch in it and you around, we'll be finished. Now the second round again will be started with three genes. The three chains will become good at the first double crochet. Now for this noun, you are going to be making two double crochets in each stage. So we'll make a double crochet in the same place as we made the three chains. And from this point make two double crochets in every station that is there, that is total of 11 stitches you have. So you'll have 22 and plus the three chains and the double crochet that you made, you will have a total of 24 stitches in the sound. You just need to have those stitches in each thing that is going to be increasing in every stage. Just to be sure the number of stitches you should have a total of 24. Yes, I have going for now we will close this zone same way as we did for the first round. We make a slip stitch in the top chain of the first chain three that we made in this make a slip stitch. That's it. You are done with the second round. In the next video, I'll show you how to make the second half of the base of the organism. 5. Second half of the base: In this video, I'll show you how to do the second half of the base of the basket. Third round again, we'll start with the chain three. This time you are not going to be increasing in each round, each stitch, sorry, you'll be increasing in every alternate stage. So the first gently counters the first double crochet. Now in the second stage you are going to make two double crochets. In the third one, you'll make one double crochet. Then in the fourth, again you'll make two, then one, then two, then one, then du, and just continue like that for the entire round. By the end of the neuron, you should have making a slip stitch in the team. For the fourth round. Again, we'll start with the chain tree. For this round, we are going to be increasing in every third stitch. That is, you'll be making one double crochet and blue stitches. And then do in the third one. Again, one in the next two stitches. And do in that third one, this keep on repeating the same by them. Why do that for them? Countless cities, ones just to be sure and just ended around the same way as we ended the first three rounds or slip stitch in the 13 of the first and remained the exit with this, we are done with the base now we'll start with the walls. In the next video, I'll show you how to make the sidewalls of the basket. 6. First half of the side wall: In this video, I'll show you how to start with the sidewalls of the basket. For this first thing that we need to do is we have to detach the pH threat and we have to attach the lemon yellow thread to this. Just cut off the piece threat, leaving about a six to seven inches long tail. Take the second color. Now in order to attach it, you just need to take a yarn over and pull it through the PGRN and just pull the end of the piece yarn so that the stitch is very small. It becomes very tight and goes right into the previous round and it is not visible anymore. That's it. You don't need to do anything else to attach the yellow yarn. You just need to do this. Just take a yarn over and pull the previous yarn tightly so that it holds in place. Now the wall is made out of single crochets in the back loops only. You are not supposed to make the single crochet in both loops. You'll be making it only in the back loop. Just make a chain one for us to start and then don't work in the front loop. You can see that each gene has two loops. We are not going to walk in the front loop, we're just going to work in the back loop and make a chain 11 single crochet at the same place, and then single crochet each in the back loop of all the stitches all the way round. Just make a slip stitch in the first gene that you made. To start the next round, make a chain one, each ONE from now on we'll be starting with the chain one and then just continue in the same way as we did in the previous row, will make one single crochet in the back loop of each stitch all the way around. All four rows will be made in the same manner. Just keep making single crochets in the back loop once it is the end joined with slip stitch, then again start the neuron with a chin. Today is the end, make a slip stitch, but this time made a slip stitch only in the back loop. Don't make the slips digit in both the loops. Make it in the back loop only. Again, we'll do a chain one for starting the next round, and we'll continue in the same manner. Make a chain one and as one single crochet in the back loop of each stitch till the end of the round, then joined with the slip stitch to the end of the semester. To begin this and also with the chain one single crochets in the back loop of each stage all the way round. Once you reach the end, just join it to the first chain of this round with the back loop only don't put in the crochet in the book, the loops, but it only in the back loop. That's it. We're done with the lemon color now the second half of the sidewall would be worked with the Bingen. In the next video, I'll show you how to do that. 7. Second half of side wall: In this video, I will show you how to do the second half of the basket sidewall that does the pink part. But then the first thing that we have to do is detach the yellow yarn, cut it off, leaving a six to seven inches long day. And the same way as you attach the lemon yellow to the orange or yarn at the beginning of the sidewalk. The same thing with the finger. Just take a Yana, love it, the pink yarn. Pull it through the yellow one. And just for the yellow yarn, tightly so that the loop becomes invisible. The loop now just make a gene with the pink yarn. And we'll do the same thing as we did for the previous row. I just willing to make single every stitch. Once you reach the end of the round, you'll just join it to the fascia in through the back loop only saved him that we did for the previous four rules. Now you'll repeat the same thing once more. Now in this row we need to meet the handles for the basket. So for that, make, started on with Jane. One, make one single crochet, and then make five genes. Instead of doing single crochets, we'll do five genes. Now you will skip five stages in the previous rule and you'll make a single crochet in the back loop of the sixth stage. That gives the gap for your basket handled. Now continue in the same way. One single crochet in each stitch in the back loop only for 19 stitches. When done with all the 19th stitches. And we'll make the second handle for that. Again, make five genes. Then skip vestiges and a single crochet in the back loop of that stitch. Now again continuing with the single crochet. This will give you the second handle. Now continue with the single crochets for the rest of the round. Once you reach the end, just join it with a slip stitch as you did for the previous rounds. At the end of the round, just join it with a slip stitch as you did for the previous rules. Start the next round again with a chain one. Now for the gene Bardach is for the handle. Just walk under the genes and make 5 single crochet or over the entire five genes. You don't have to go into the loops. You will just go under the chin and McRae single Bush's. When done continue with the single crochets in the back loop. You reach the second handle. Once you reach the second handle, repeat the same thing. Just make the five genes don't go into the loops, just go under the gene and Makefile single group with one single crochet in the end. Once you reach the end, just joined to the first sheet, CMV. In the back loop only. The last rule of the basket, same way as we did the previous rules. Start with the gene one in each stage in the bag and finish with a slip stitch slightly with your hands cut-off. Extra. In the next video, I'll show you how to meet the Florida to attach to the basket. 8. Making the flower: In this video, I will show you how to make this flower to decorate your basket. For this, it'll start with a magic ring. Wrap the yarn around, fulfill fingers. Take the Crochet under the first loop and pulling the second loop through it. Now to start with, we'll make do genes and wonderful crochet in the magic ring. The magic ring is the center of the flower. So all the statistics have been made in the magic ring only. Make three chains and a slip stitch in the magic ring again makes regions. A triple crochet. Again, three chains and a slip stitch in the magic thing. This'll make the second battle of the flower. We'll repeat it three more times to make a total of five buttons. If you want, you can repeat it four times. If you want to have more number of petals, or you can reduce the number of petals to four or three as per your preference. Okay? Once done with all the petals, just got off the yarn and pull the starting end to close the magically. Pull it tight. Because you want a closed circle, a closed center for the flower. This is it, we are done with the flower. I'll just pull up the end loop from the center to the back of the flower because we'll be needing it to attach it to the basket. So both the yarn ends, the beginning and the end should be at the back of the flower. Now take the lemon colored yarn and with this will make the flower center or the center again, we'll start with the magic ring. Make a slip stitch, and then make six single crochets in the ring. Once done with six, the starting end to close the magic ring, polar cap. And then to finish, make a slip stitch in the first single crochet that you made, cut off the extra yarn. And we are done with the center. In the next video, I'll show you how to attach it to the basket and how to finish the basket. 9. Finishing and attaching the flower: In this video, I'll show you how to finish the basket. Let us assemble the flower first. For that, we'll start with the flower center, that is the central circle. First thread, the end. In the Nanyang needle, bias it to the stages and bullet out through the center of the circle. Once you have both the ion ends at the sender, pass both of them to the center of the flower. I'm just died naughts at the back of the flood that will attach to the Florida Center. Do the main body of the flock. To finish the basket. Just keep on threading all the yarn ends through the donning needle and bus the yarn a number of times through the stitches. Once you feel that it is secure, just cut it very close to the work. Make sure that you follow a zigzag pattern. Like once you go to the right, then comeback in the left direction. Do that once or twice so that the ends do not come out when you wash the basket. Buddha, same thing with all the six ends that you have. Once you are done with that, then we are ready to attach the floor. I have attached the fly very close to the handle. That is the place where we started all the rooms. You can see this bar does not have any uneven stages, but the beginning will have someone even digits. So in order to hide them, you can add the flood there. Guys the fly you just need to pass the ends that are hanging at the back of the flood through the stages vary. Want to attach the floor? Just tie a knot at the back. You can do it with a crochet hook if you want, you can do that with the needle also. Died not very securely. Now boss, all these four ends to the front of the basket. If you want them hanging below the floor. I have attached them like that. If you want, you can died two or three knots and then just cut off the thread, the remaining extra fluid. And just make one or two secure naughts here. And then I've just got all the four ends equal inland. He had done with the basket. Do watch the next video to know what your class assignment is. 10. Assignment: Now that you have learned all the elements to make this basket, your class assignment is to make this basket with a T-shirt yarn or whatever by t yarn is available with you. You didn't make it and dispose the pictures in the project section here so that me and all the other fellow classmates can see what you have made.
