Mar 2, 2015 12:00:00 AM

After the success of the trapilho crochet basket, free pattern to download here, we thought it was necessary to start with you.

Because we regularly offer the trapilho basket workshop at Henry & Henriette in Nantes, we also noticed that the beginning was hard to achieve and retain, once the we had completed his first basket.

To fill this gap, so we made a video to start the basket, that is its bottom. The part to create the edges being much simpler following the explanations.

Find our great trapilho balls here and small there. The trapilho crochet basket kit is available here.The Knit Pro Waves hooks (which can be seen on the video 8mm) are here.

Please tell us what you think about this video and suggest us some others!
