Has anyone successfully completed this project? I am at the base and it says chain 23 which would leave you with 22 stitches, well I followed it, have not attached it to sides because it does not match up with the sides, for the small basket (which I am doing) each side is 5 inches, and 22 stitches is much longer then 5 inches so it results in there being two sides at 5 inches and two sides more then 5 inches, I think I may restart the base and do my stitches as long as 5 inches. The rest of the pattern is pretty straight forward. Am I maybe missing something as to why there are two different sized sides for the base?

what are the instructions for the large basket? I love this idea and want to do them. I agree this instructions are not all that clear. I understand the ch 46 (23) parentheses but I see nothing in these directions for the large basket. Any help out there? Thanks! Twodogs

Typically, when instructions are written that way, it indicates a change in size. Therefore, you would chain 23 for the smaller one, or 46 for the larger one.

What stitch should I use to joint the base to the sides? None is specified and am unsure of how to join this together. Thanks, can't wait to finish this.
