Felted basket

I am so excited!!!  I was crocheting this without knowing how it would turn out.  I wanted something more basket like, rather than just a bowl.  I washed it once, and it was still pretty floppy.  I washed it again, and it felted more , but still floppy.  I washed it a third time and stuck it in boiling water, and wow.  What a surprise for me!!!  I used Paton's Classic Wool Yarn.  It shrunk quite a bit, but it is nice, soft and the sides hold.  I don't have a pattern for this, but will be doing more as I make baskets for our shelves, so I will try to get a pattern together. 

God bless!
