Crochet Pattern: Simple Basket

Free Handmade Crochet Basket Pattern

These are some of my little trinkets in a simple crochet basket. Crochet basket are so easy to make. So many likes and repins in Pinterest of this photo from this post, motivate me to write a free simple pattern for any of you who are interested in crocheting one. Read more for the pattern...


The basis on this basket is using hdc stitches, which give the beautiful look. You might want to look up on how to do a hdc and a magic ring, if you are a beginner.

Here we go.

Pattern

Start with a magic ring.

Round 1: Ch 1, 8 sc into magic ring, join with sl st.

Round 2: Ch 2, 2 hdc in each st, join with sl st (total 16 hdc).

Round 3: Ch 2, (2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next st), rep around and join with sl st (total 24 hdc).

Round 4: Ch 2, (2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next 2 st), rep around and join with sl st (total 32 hdc).

Round 5: Ch 2, (2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next 3 st), rep around and join with sl st (total 40 hdc).

Round 6: Ch 2, (2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next 4 st), rep around and join with sl st (total 48 hdc).

Create as many rounds for the base to the size you want, increasing accordingly.  

Round 7: Ch 1, back sc in each st, join with a sl st. (This round will create a crisp seam for the transition from base to body/wall of the basket). 

Round 8: Ch 2, hdc in each st, join with sl st. 

Round 9: Ch 1, back sc in each st, join with sl st. 

Repeat Round 8 & 9 until desired height and finish off by weaving in the ends.
