Yarn in an array of colours (approx 1000-1200m).

Rope. I used approx 21 metres of 9mm nylon rope to make a basket approximately 35cm in diameter x 30cm high. The same quantity of 8mm rope was used in the first basket. I think you could use rope in any size, though thicker rope will make a more sturdy basket.

Hook. I used a 5mm/H hook.

Stitch markers.


Yarn needle.

Lighter or matches. These come in useful for any joins that you may need to make with the rope as well as for sealing the cut end.
