The camel stitch is one of my favorite stitches because the two sides look totally different but equally beautiful.  You can fold down the tops of the baskets to make even mini-er baskets or you can turn the entire basket inside out and it will still look great!

Although the same brand of yarn was used for both baskets, the grey heather was just a tiny bit thicker but it was enough that the basket only required 17 rows instead of 18 to make it the same height as the basket done in aran.

The back loop only is the same back loop like it is for all stitches, the third loop is the extra loop created when you make a hdc which is found behind/below the back loop.
