HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY !!
basket front
This little basket is a perfect container for a Valentine's gift of Hershey Kisses.  I made these baskets as table favors for a Valentine's dinner.  
basket alone
I adjusted the pattern after row 7 (36 sts.) by continuing to work in the round, but without increasing, for 5 addtional rows.  I then slipstitched twice around the top edge before adding the handle.

Hi! This is my first visit to your blog via Beverly's "Pink Saturday" party. I SO admire people with the creative gene that engineers the power to knit and/or crochet and/or sew!!! Those talents are totally elusive to me! I know your guests were thrilled to get these hand and heart-made favors that they can continue to enjoy long after the kisses are devoured! Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
