  1. round 14 is not working for me – starting with 1dc flo in the next 2 stitches- also don’t quite understand Round 11 – work around Row 9?

    1. It’s a beautiful basket, but I literally cannot learn without a video showing every step. I know that there’s a video showing the stitch, but since I’m still kind of new to crocheting I can’t learn without the video. I love seeing everyone else’s basket on the Facebook page though. 🙂

  2. Round 14 not working for me. I do have the correct number of stitches but following the count in the instructions, it does not work.

  3. The written pattern for the basket calls for 2 sc blo between the ldcflo stitch in the first row of the pattern on row 14. The video and the photo show 4 scblo. Am I reading it incorrectly?

  4. Breann – I think I have 14 correct but am having trouble with 15. Every other lecture flo ends me up in the middle of a lecture flo from the previous row.
