Crochet pattern Square Basket

basket brown

For this pattern You Need:

*1 ball of Yarn, (I use Ribbon XL. It is perfect for these baskets! But you could use also t-shirt yarn.

If You use Ribbon XL, You need a crochet hook nr 6(US size 10) When using Zpagetti Yarn use a hook nr 8 or 9.

 You will need a stitch marker, You can use a safety pin or a piece of yarn for this too.

 An XL needle with a round point to weave in the ends.

The finished basket will be about 15 cm x 15 cm

 

 

Let’s get started!

1. Make 3 ch st. and attach them together with a slip st.

 

2. Make 4 SC in the middle of the circle, and put Your stitch marker in the first SC You make.

 

3. Make 3 SC in each of the 4 stitches, replace the stitch marker. (12 st)

 

 

4. Make 1 SC in the next stick and replace the stitch marker. In the next stitch make 3 SC. (Make 1 SC in the next 2 stitches and 3 SC in the 3rd)
Repeat ( ) another 2 times.
End the row with 1 SC (20 st)

 

 

5. Make a SC in the next 2 stitches, replace the stitch marker. Make 3 SC in the 3rd stitch. (Make 1 SC in the next 4 stitches and 3 SC in the 5th.)
Repeat ( ) another 2 times.
End the row with a SC in the last 2 stitches (28 st)

 

 

6. Make a SC in the next 3 stitches, replace the stitch marker. Make 3 SC in the 4th stitch. (Make 1 SC in the next 6 stitches, make 3 SC in the 7th stitch.)
Repeat ( ) another 2 times.
End the row with a SC in the last 3 stitches. (36)

 

 

7. Make a SC in the next 4 stitches and 3 SC in the 5th stitch. (Make 1 SC in the next 8 stitches and make 3 SC in the 9th stitch) Repeat ( ) another 2 times.
End the row with a SC in the next 4 stitches. (44)

 

 

8. Make a SC in the next 5 stitches and 3 SC in the 6th stitch.
(Make a SC in the next 10 stitches and 3 SC in the 11th.)
Repeat ( ) another 2 times. End the row with a SC in the next 5 stitches. (52 st)

 

 

9. That was it for the base, let’s go up!
Now We will make 1 SC in each of the 52 stitches but We will pick up only the back loop of the stitch so We get a line all around. This line is deciding the bottom of the basket with the sides,

At the 4 corners, You crochet 2 stitches together, like this the basket will stand up more straight.

(48 st)

 

 

10. (Make a SC in each of the 48 stitches.) Repeat ( ) another 15 times.

 

 

 

11. Cut the tread and pass true the loop. Take the needle with a round nose, ship a stitch and pass it true the next stitch.

 

 

12. Go back to the first stitch and pass the needle down true the stitch, zig-zag the rest of the yarn on the inside of Your basket.

 

 

16. Flip over the basket and tadaa! Ready 🙂 I like to sew in a little label, or if You make a lower basket that You don’t flip over, You can use it for bread, Make the base smaller or bigger, have fun with it!

Now go ahead and make them in all colors!!

Have Fun!
