Easy Crochet Basket Pattern

I love making crochet baskets – they’re incredibly versatile and quick and easy to make. I recently taught a class on hot to crochet a basket and thought I’d share the pattern on my blog too…so here it is!

You Will Need:

T-shirt yarn (approx 240g)

10mm crochet hook

Needle (for sewing in ends)

Stitch marker

How to make the basket:

Round 1: Using the t-shirt yarn, form a magic ring, 6dc into the ring and tighten (6)

Round 2: 2dc in each stitch (place a stitch marker into your first stitch, and for every round) (12)

Round 3: 1dc into first stitch, 2dc into the next stitch *dc, 2dc* until end of the round (18)

Round 4: 2dc into first stitch, dc into the next two stitches *2dc, dc, dc* until end of round (24)

Round 5: *2dc, dc into next 3 stitches* (30)

Round 6: dc in back loops only for the whole round (30)

Rounds 7-10: dc in every stitch (30) (Nb this is 4 rounds)

Round 11: dc in first 5 stitches, ch8, skip 5 stitches from previous round, dc into the next stitch and the following 9 stitches. Ch8, skip 5 stitches, dc into the last 5 stitches. (36)

Round 12: dc in every stitch, when you get to the chain sections, dc 8 over the chain and then continue with the dc until the end. (36)

Finish off and weave in ends
Ta-dah that’s it! These make great little gift baskets or storage solutions – happy crocheting!x
