These knitted baskets are made from Paper Yarn using the same size knitting loom. Each basket is then sewn onto a round wooden base with pre-drilled holes.

Guide step 1
1.
Secure the Paper Yarn by tying it onto the small peg on the side of the knitting loom. Now wrap the yarn around each individual peg (making loops around each peg) on the knitting loom, going in the same direction (as here shown).
Guide step 2
2.
Cast a total of two rounds each time before starting the knitting. Always start on the peg to the left of the peg on the side of the knitting loom.
Guide step 3
3.
Use the knitting hook which is part of the knitting loom kit to lift – from each peg - the loop from the lower row over the upper loop around the whole of the knitting loom. Continue this process until you have reached the desired height. NB: Take into account the fold (here the entire length is 20cm) and do not knit too tightly, as Paper Yarn does not give.
Guide step 4
4.
Casting off: Lift two loops onto the knitting hook.
Guide step 5
5.
Finish: Pull the outer loop on the hook through to the inner loop. Now there is only one loop on the hook. Pull up a new loop from the next peg on the lom (clock wise). Pull this loop through the inner loop as described above. Continue like this around the loom.
Guide step 6
6.
Cut the Paper Yarn at the last loop. Pull the end of the Paper Yarn through the loop and tighten.
Guide step 7
7.
Turn the knitted tube inside out. Fold in the middle and stitch together with Paper Yarn where the two edges meet.
Guide step 8
8.
Fit four wooden sticks into the pre-drilled holes on the wooden base for stabilizing. Place the knitted tube around the wooden sticks onto the wooden base.
Guide step 9
9.
Sew the wooden base onto the knitted tube using Paper Yarn; through the pre-drilled holes and through both knitted layers twice. Use one of the needles from the knitting loom set.
