Any-Size Round Container
An easy-to-make container with a round base which can be made in any diameter, height or number of colours, making it a good project for beginners or for using up yarn left over from other projects. Makes a great plant pot cover, storage basket or toy box.
The container is worked in a continuous spiral from the base up and can be made with or without the folded-over lip at the top edge.
This pattern uses both American and British crochet terms and has a photo tutorial on how to change colour.
