Simple Crochet Basket Pattern
Skill Level: Easy
- Super Bulky Yarn (6) I used Lion Brand Yarn Hometown USA in Chicago Charcoal
- Size N 9.00 MM crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Approximately a 13-Inch circumference and 5 inch height
- Slip Stitch does not count as a chain when working in the round. (skip it)
- Make sure to slip stitch to first Single or Double Crochet in each round not the Chain 1 or 2.
Crochet Basket Pattern
Round 1: Chain 3, 10 Double Crochets in 3rd Chain from hook. Slip Stitch to top of first Double Crochet.
Round 2: Chain 2, 2 Double Crochets in Each Chain Around. Slip Stitch to top of First Double Crochet (not the chain 2)
Round 3: Chain 2, 2 Double Crochets in first Stitch, *1 Double Crochet in next stitch, 2 Double Crochets in Next stitch, Repeat from * around until last chain, slip stitch to the top of the first Double Crochet.
Round 4: Chain 2, 1 Double Crochet in each stitch around. Slip Stitch to top of first Double Crochet.
Round 5 & 6: Repeat Round 4.
Round 7: Chain 2, Double Crochet in first st *Skip next stitch, Double Crochet in the next stitch, Now go back and Double Crochet in the Skipped stitch (creates a crisscross) Repeat from * until the end of round. Slip Stitch to top of first Double Crochet.
Round 8: Chain 1, Single Crochet in each stitch around. Slip stitch to top of first Single Crochet.
Round 9: Chain 1, Slip Stitch in ever stitch around. Fasten off. Weave in ends with Yarn needle
- Cut a 24-Inch Piece of yarn with scissors
- Attach yarn to yarn needle
Finishing: Weave in yarn completely around basket along top of single crochet round (see picture)
Pull yarn through as you are weaving it around until you are left with about 1 inch of space between yarn ends. (See picture)
Tie a bow and cut ends if you choose. It really depends on how long you want your bow.
You are done!
The basket could also be easily cinched closed to hide gifts and make gift giving even more fun than it already is!
I ended up trimming the ends of the bow to make it a little shorter.
Which way do you prefer?
I actually love it both ways! I like the fact that without the bow you can see the awesome crisscross pattern, but with it, you can cinch the basket closed and hide away whatever you are giving! To… many… choices…

Should Round 3 end with “Slip Stitch to top of First Double Crochet” like all the other rounds?
Yes you will. I updated the pattern to reflect that. Thanks for finding the error. 🙂
