sk = skip;

TIP:
To make a smaller basket, simply work fewer rounds on the base. Stop when the base is the diameter you want and proceed directly to Rnd 18. To make a larger basket, work additional increase rounds by adding one more single crochet between each increase for each additional round. Similarly, the sides can be made higher or lower by working more or fewer side rounds.
