Basic Skills Necessary:

  • To make these baskets you need to know how to chain, single crochet and slip stitch. You will be working in the round which is explained. Instructions for Crab Stitch are included.

Pattern Description:

These 3 baskets are very fast & easy to crochet in inexpensive cotton worsted yarn. A beginning crocheter can finish each basket in less than an hour. The 6 page illustrated pattern comes with access to the designer (me) for any questions you may have. The baskets look very festive in these Spring/Summer colors, but of course could be made in neutrals, dark colors, or whatever fits in with your home.

The yarn is used doubled to make thick and sturdy baskets you'll find so many uses for. The pattern is for all 3 baskets, so it's like getting three patterns in one. There's also a full page of suggestions for ways to alter the sizes and styles of the baskets. You'll be crocheting baskets for years with this one pattern.

These handy little stash-busting baskets can be quickly made by beginning crocheters. They're made in single crochet and thick yarn so they keep their shape. Use them for candies, paper clips, stitch markers, pins, tea bags, lipsticks, etc. The tall basket has a loop for hanging and is useful for crochet hooks, chopsticks, dried flowers, etc.
