Knitting Distraction—Advice Needed

Right now, when I absolutely, positively do NOT have time to think about anything else except getting ready for this move, I am, of course, thinking about some knitting.  At least, it would be for the new place.

I saw this item in a catalog or magazine—I’ve lost the source.  I pinned it to my Pinterest page.  It is obviously knitted.  It is made of rope.  It is described as 14” x 16”.  I need some baskets about this size for the new place and this kind of looked like fun.  However, I can’t figure out how to shape the bottom.  Any ideas out there?  And needles?

My first thought was to knit a strip of garter for the sides. But then, the bottom? I wonder about looking at
a similar hat pattern to adapt to making a larger shape like the pic...??? Guessing that you might need dps or a circ for magic loop. Something to think about... Good luck. I'll watch for updates!
