Join white yarn for Minnie or yellow for Mickey and repeat row 4.

Basket Handle:

Ch 20 with black, join different color(pink for Minnie or red for Mickey) and make a row of sc, join black again and make a row of ss.
Cut the yarn and weave in the ends. Sew the handle to the basket.

I did ch 25 for Minnie's basket but it looks better with ch 20 (Mickey's basket).
