Crochet Basket{Tutorial}

You like my new basket??

I saw this basket over on Pinterest and fell in love!


I mean, how you could you not, it’s fantastic!! I started making it, but then I changed halfway through…deciding to do a half double crochet and double crochet in spots rather than just the single crochet all the way through. You can see her pattern here and follow that, or you can stick around here and I’ll show you what I used as mine;)

I used two skeins of yarn and double strands instead of four strands. Mostly because I didn’t have two skeins of each color, but also because I couldn’t find my bigger crochet hook…LOL whatever, Make do with what you have right? Using hdc and dc make it go by faster too since a “sc” stitch gives a shorter row.

2 skeins (I used white and grey)
Size K Crochet hook

Starting out using her pattern, I followed it for the bottom part.

I copied that part of the pattern here to keep it all in one place for you.

Ch 3

Rnd 1: 7 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with sl st (8 hdc)

Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each st. Join with sl st. (16 hdc)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next st, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st) around. Join with sl st. (24 hdc)

Rnd 4: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 2 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st) around. Join with sl st. (32 hdc)

Rnd 5: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 3 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 3 sts) around. Join with sl st. (40 hdc)

Rnd 6: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 4 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 4 sts) around. Join with sl st. (48 hdc)

Rnd 7: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 5 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 5 sts) around. Join. (56 hdc)

Rnd 8: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 6 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 6 sts) around. Join. (64 hdc)

Rnd 9: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 7 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 7 sts) around. Join. (72 hdc)

The next round will be the first row of the body of the basket. You will be working into the back of each hdc.

Rnd 10: Ch 1, sc under the line or ridge on the back of the first st of previous round. (Hdc have a line or ridge on the back of the stitch). You will be working under this line or ridge, not into the regular loops. Creating a seam separating the bottom and the sides of the basket. Continue working sc around. Join with sl st.

Rnd 11: (Here is where it changes) Ch 2, dc in each st all the way around. Join.

Rnd 12-13: Ch 2, dc in each st around. Join.

Rnd 14: Join white yarn. Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join.

Rnd 15: Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join.

Rnd 16: Join grey yarn. Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join

Rnd 17-18: Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join

Rnd 19: Join white yarn. Ch 2, hdc in each. Join

Rnd 20-24: Ch 2, hdc in each. Join.

Rnd 25: Join grey yarn. Ch 1, sc in next 13 sts. Ch 10. Skip 10 sts and then sc into 11th st.  Sc in next 25 sts. Ch 10. Skip 10 sts and then sc into 11th st. Sc in remaining 12 sts and join.

Rnd 26: Ch 1, sc in each st until you get to the chain (handle) part. Going around the chain, sc over it 12 times. Continue with sc throughout sts and repeat the 12 sc’s on the second chain section (handle). Sc on following sts. Join

Rnd 27: Ch 1, sc in each st around.

Finish off and weave in ends. all done!! Super cute. I plan on putting mine in the car so that I have a place for all of Miss M’s toys during car trips.

Let me know what you think!

  2. I love this and really want to make one, but I have a really dumb question. If you did not have 2 skeins of each color yarn, how were you able to do double strands? Is there a trick to doing that? Thanks for your help :>)

    • Not a dumb question at all..I used Red Heart, so you can take the strand from the side that wraps around it, and then also from the middle. On the packaging its labeled “A” and “B”. I hope this helps!;)

  3. Very nice! I invite you to link it up to Fibers on Friday as well!


  4. Ooh, I need to make one of these. (And I think I’d rather use your method, two strands instead of four sounds good to me!)

  5. Love this! I wish my crocheting skills were a little better, but I may definitely give this a go! Lovely stuff here :)

  6. I love crocheted stuff, and I wish I know how to do it. Now you are making me wanna try to do it:)

    Hopping by and following your FB, twitter and Pinterest.

    Also inviting you to join my Yoplait Giveaway which includes VIP coupon for a free 4-pack of Yoplait Trix yogurt for kids and Yoplait branded items including an insulated lunch tote, ice pack, backpack, folder, zippered pencil pouch, pencils, erasers, and pencil sharpener (great for your schooling kid!).

  11. Hi, I am new to crochet. I’ve started making this bag and have a questions that I can’t seem to find anywhere online. Once I’ve finished a row and begin the new row with a chain stitch should I rotate and change direction to begin the new row?

  12. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
    feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re
    interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

  13. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your
    favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries
    that they just don’t know about. You managed
    to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  22. Or, you can set yourself up as a broker selling things for others
    and earning a commission. Once the information is established in
    a newsletter or ebook, or in a video or audio presentation,
    the work is done and the author gets paid each time a consumer purchases
    the information. What’s more, since this profession
    is in great demand, you can expect to find a steady source of income online every single month.

    The deceased may have been a member of a particular race or

  32. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content
    from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
