The Nantasket Basket is a small felted basket with a unique handle and a circular base. The bottom features a sturdy, cleverly knit edge that allows the basket to stand upright.

Instructions are provided for two versions.

Version I has plain sides:

Version II uses a slip-stitch pattern to mimic the look of wicker.

Each version requires two, 100g skeins of a worsted-weight 100% wool yarn (approximately 220-250 yards per skein) that felts easily. Good choices are Nature Spun Worsted, Cascade 220, Plymouth Galway, or Dale of Norway Heilo. Both have a finished size of approximately 4.5 inches tall and 6.5 inches around the base.
