Pattern Crochet Hanging Basket

For this pattern You will need:

– 1 ball of Yarn & a crochet hook nr 6 (US 10), I use Ribon XL (which I also sell in My Etsy shop) but You can try the pattern also with another yarn, preferably suitable for hook nr 6 (US 10), but if not adjust the hook to the yarn You have, if You have a thinner yarn You can also use it double.

– A stitch marker. (This can also just be a safety pin or a piece of yarn, we just want to know when we finish our round becouse we don’t close our rounds we just keep continuing)

– A big needle with round point to weave in the ends.
-The basket will be (using the ribbon XL and the hook nr 6 (US10)) 12 cm x 12 cm or 4,7 inch x 4,7 inch.

The stitches we use:

– The chain stitch = yarn over, pull true.
– The single crochet (SC) = Go true the stitch, yarn over, pull true, yarn over, pull true 2 loops on the hook. – The slip stitch = Go true the stitch, yarn over, pul true and pull true the loop on the hook.

Now, take a cup of tea, make Yourself comfortable in Your favorite chair and lets start!

 

1. Make 3 chain stitches and close in a circle with a slip stitch.

2. Make 6 SC in the middle of the circle and mark Your first SC with a stitch marker (or safety pin). (6 st)

 

3. Make 2 SC in each stitch, replace the stitch marker (12)

 

4. (Make 1 SC in the first stitch and 2 SC in the next stitch) Replace stitch marker.
Repeat ( ) another 5 times. (18st)

5. (Make 1 SC in the first 2 stitches and 2 SC in the third stitch) Replace the stitch marker.
Repeat ( ) another 5 times. (24st)

6. (Make 1 SC in the first 3 stitches and 2 SC in the 4th stitch) Replace stich marker.
Repeat ( ) another 5 times. (30st)

 

7. (Make 1 SC in the first 4 stitches and 2 SC in the 5th stitch) Replace stitch marker.
Repeat ( ) another 5 times. (36st)

 

8. (Make 1 SC in the first 5 stitches and 2 SC in the 6th stitch) Replace the stitch marker.
Repeat ( ) another 5 times. (42st)

9. (Make a SC in each stitch around, replace stitch marker. (42st)) Repeat ( ) another 7 times.

 

10. Make 10 chain stitches.

11. skip 9 stitches and attach with a SC in the 10th stitch. go around with a SC in each stitch.
(Now we see where the stitch marker is is the beginning of the new round, we don’t need to move him any more.

12. Go another round all around with a SC in each stitch. (42st)

13. Make a slip stitch in each stitch so You get a nice decorative border. (42st)

14. cut of the tread and pull true the loop. Take a big needle with a round point, and stitch in the loose ends.

Make them in all colors and play also with the sizes, You can make them bigger by always adding 1 more SC to the pattern of the bottom of the basket and crocheting a few rows more up. These baskets are really handy for many uses! I have one for My cloth pins, one hanging in My wardrobe for My chunky necklaces, and in one I put some basil and hung it in the kitchen, But also at the entrance or in the bathroom they can do there duty!

Ilse:)

When u are satisfied, click on odd and one will generate for u. You can now save it and/ or print it out.

      Thank You! The stitch marker is not really a stitch marker, it’s a clasp for key’s I found somewhere, but it’s really handy as stitch marker because You can replace it so easily!😉

    What a useful little basket for a craft room, I love it. I think I’ll try it using denim, with an appropriate sized hook of course. Will come out a bit larger, but that will be Ok. This will be a perfect project to do with my crochet club, thank you so much for sharing.

    I love it but I was trying to make it with a slightly thicker yarn and it becomes sort of wavy at the beginning😦 I wonder what I’m doing wrong …

    Thank you for this fabulous pattern!!! Just wondering where ever did you get that large “eyed” needle? I’ve never seen one like it before. It looks perfect for projects using this type of yarn.

      Hi Sue! I’m happy You like the pattern! You can use any yarn, it will just make a difference in the size of the basket, chose a slightly smaller hook then You would normally use so the basket will be strong, for the yarn I use its a 10/J in US size. Have fun! Ilse:)

    I’m curious as to how you got the basket to hang “through the door handle. The bag handle looks like a closed loop and the door handle in the picture looks closed as well. Did you crochet the bag through the door handle or unscrew the handle to insert the bag? I didn’t see any screws in the top of the “brass” handle. Also, have you ever considered using the magic circle to start the bag?

      Hi Linda! The handle of the bag is big enough to hang on the door handle, and yes, of course you can start the basket also with the magic circle, whatever you prefer!:)

      I was wondering about how it was hanging on the door handle as well. In one of the photos, you can see that the top of the handle isn’t attached to the door…the screws are removed.:)

        Hi Jackie, the basket if crocheted with Ribbon xl and hook nr 6 can pass for sure over the handle of the door, there’s no reason to unscrew anything:) If some screws are missing it’s because its an old door. Give it a try You will see, have fun!
