Round 4

Start the round with chain 1.

This round we will be working only in the back loops. For working on back loops, instead of inserting your hook underneath the entire stitch, insert the hook in center of the stitch, and exit underneath the back loop.

Make back loop single crochet in all stitches around.

This would create the ridged edge and form the bottom edge of the basket.
