The finished basket measures 10" by 5" by 5". I'm not sure what I was thinking when I set out for this basket to be a dog bed because my little dog won't fit inside this basket. In order for Sisko to use the basket as a bed, it would need to be at least 10" by 10". Whoops!
On the upside, the basket only used four balls of yarn, leaving me with six left over in this color. I think I'm going to re-purpose the basket for something else and make Sisko a larger bed out of the remaining yarn. I can almost always find a use for yet another basket. It would probably look nice holding the rest of my crochet supplies or in my bathroom for toiletries. I'll need to think on where it's final rest place will be.
