I actually started work on this design over a year ago, then got distracted by knitting, as one does!
There is absolutely no sewing involved, well apart from weaving in loose ends, it is crocheted from the base in the round, and then the handle is worked from side to side. The basket weave pattern is a combination of the crochet knit stitch and working in the back loops.
