I just found the neatest pattern at Knitpicks for a felted Nantucket Basket. The pattern and yarn cost less than $16 and since my whole order was over $30 the shipping was free. Can't wait to get it and try the basket pattern.

I saw that basket and pattern and am tempted to give it a try. What yarn did you select for it? Please let us know how it comes out, ok? You just can't beat KnitPicks for their low cost but beautiful yarns!

Is it my imagination or did they enlarge the yarn color samples? I like them.

I got wheat and winter night. I'll let you know how it comes out. I just received notice that it's already been shipped. Wow, that's quick, I just placed my order this morning. Can't wait to see how it works up.

i just finished the nantasket basket using christmasy green with red for the handles and border at bottom. it is adorable!....going to give it to mother-in-law with goodies in in for holidays. i used wool-of-the-andes double stranded and increased to a final of 100 stithes rather than 88. the only change i would make would be to shorten the handle a tad.

Hi
I'd like to order the Nantasket basket...but I don't like to use DPN's unless they are for I-cord. So, in making the basket, are DPN's used for the base or just the handles?
thanks,
Carol

(thats why my bowls/vases are made with a flat square base, no DPN's!

yes....you have to use dpn's to start the basket and for the icord. i too hate dpns...i feel like i have more fingers than i need..but i struggled thru the first few rows then moved to a short circular and it came out fine...wish there was a way to get around those dpns![crazy]
