Crochet shallow basket for earrings free pattern

about 11 inches long, 5 inches wide

Due to the overabundance of blue yarn that was chosen to occupy the bags of yarn I pick up at the thrift store for $3, I am going with a blue theme for my dresser top jewellery crochet baskets. I am actually running out of blue for now, so I made the base of this basket orange (trying to use up that yarn) and the side blue.

Sides
Here`s where I had to switch to a 4 crochet hook because my blue yarn is thinner than the orange. This is why I continued in hdc rather than sc. Also, I wanted to keep the nice side of the oval facing up since this will be a shallow dish and I`ll be looking at it as I select earrings so round 13 is done a little differently.

Round 13: Ch 2, hdc around in FRONT LOOP ONLY, join with sl st to ch 2.

Round 14: Ch 2, hdc around through whole loop, join with sl st to ch 2.

Repeat row 14 3-4 more times. Instead of “join w/ sl st to Ch 2”, sc in ch 2, then sl st in next 3 hdc. Bind off and weave in ends.
