(weekend diy) crochet basket pattern


 Supplies Needed:
Twine
5.5 MM Crochet hook
Stitch marker (I use a safety pin)
Embroidery needle
Scissors

Note: This isn't a crochet tutorial because my skills are fresh and not so hot since I'm a beginner.


I found a pin on pinterest of crocheted baskets. That set off my crocheting journey. I wanted to make these baskets and I wanted to make them that day. I followed the pin to the source and it was in a foreign language that Google Translate could translate but the pattern language got lost in translation. I couldn't find another basket that was like the ones of my dreams so I referenced a couple different ones and this is what I came up with!

CROCHET BASKET PATTERN:
Base: 
Ch 2. 
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first ch.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around - equaling 12 sts.
Rnd 3: *2 sc in next st, sc in next st; rep from * around - equaling 18 sts.
Rnd 4: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts; rep from * around - equaling 24 sts.
Rnd 5: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts; rep from * around - equaling 30 sts.
Rnd 6: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts; rep from * around - equaling 36 sts.
Rnd 7: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts; rep from * around - equaling 42 sts.
Rnd 8: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 sts; rep from * around - equaling 48 sts.
Rnd 9: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 7 sts; rep from * around - equaling 54 sts.
Rnd 10: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 8 sts; rep from * around - equaling 60 sts.
Rnd 11: *2 sc in next st, sc in next 9 sts; rep from * around - equaling 66 sts.

Sides:
Rnd 12: Working in front of loops, sc in each st around.
Rnd 13: Working in both loops, sc in each st around. Continue working in the round until sides measure desired height. Mine is approximately 5" tall.
Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Enjoy!
