CROCHET BASKET – Free pattern

http://www.heldesign.com/crochet-basket/

Make a cute little basket! Perfect for your keys, pocket change or other small items. You can also make it larger and use it as a bowl, a cover for your plants etc. The ways to use it are endless!


DESIGN AND PATTERN: HEGE ESPELAND LYGRE
Please read the Terms of use for my crochet patterns.


What you´ll need:

  • Scrap yarn
  • Crochet hook – Size D or whatever hook you´ll need to get a stiff basket, that means a smaller hook than you´d normally use.

Stitches/Abbreviations

Special stitches

Misc

  • The basket is crocheted in rounds, that means that you do not join after each round, you continue to crochet in the next stitch on the next round. It might be a good idea to use some yarn or a stitch marker to show where each round ends.
  • Increase: 2 sc in same stitch.
  • Decrease: 2 sc together: Insert hook into stitch, yarn over hook, pull yarn through one loop, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over hook, pull yarn through one loop, yarn over hook, pull yarn through all three loops on hook.

PATTERN

IMG_20140817_232807Rnd 1: Make 10 sc in a magic ring, don´t fasten with sl st in the first st. Tip: don´t tighten the ring until you´re done with the second rnd.

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st all the way around = 20 sc

Rnd 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * all the way around = 30 sc  

Rnd 4: 1 sc in each st all the way around = 30 sc

Rnd 5: *2 sc, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * all the way around = 40 sc  

Rnd 6: 1 sc in each st all the way around = 40 sc

Rnd 7: *3 sc, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * all the way around = 50 sc  

Rnd 8: 1 sc in each st all the way around = 50 sc

Rnd 9: *4 sc, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * all the way around = 60 sc

Rnd 10: *5 sc, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * all the way around = 70 sc

Rnd 11: Decrease: *5 sc, next 2 sts tog*. Repeat from * to * all the way around = 60 sc  

Rnd 12 – 18: 1 sc in each st all the way around = 60 sc

Rnd 19: sl st in next st, ch 1, 1 sc in the same st as sl st. 1 sc in each of the remaining sts all the way around, join with sl st in the first st.

Cut the yarn and weave in the ends!

Tip! If you want a bigger basket you just continue to increase after rnd 10 until you get the size that you want. The same goes for the height, if you want the basket to be lower you crochet less than 19 rounds and if you want it to be taller you crochet more than 19 rounds.
