What Can You Do With A Crocheted Basket?
Use Your Extra Yarn – Crochet basket patterns don’t use a ton of yarn, so they make for a great stash buster project. It’s a good use of yarn that that was leftover from those chunky blankets last fall, or for skeins of worsted weight yarns as well.
Gift Giving – These baskets make awesome gifts. I love to crochet a basket and then put a gift inside, whether a gift card, cute tea towels, candy – just about anything!
Storage – handmade baskets like these are so trendy in home decor right now, and they are super useful to store anything!

What Yarn Is Best For Crochet Baskets?
The trick to making a good crochet basket is to have a sturdy, firm fabric. To do this, it’s easiest to use a chunky or super bulky yarn and a small hook. This will create a tight fabric so the basket will hold it’s shape.
However, there are great patterns that also use worsted weight yarn! You just need to use a small enough hook for it to work out. You can also hold several strands of worsted weight yarn together to equal a the thickness of a chunky yarn!
Crochet Skills Needed To Make a Basket
You will definitely want to be comfortable with single crochet stitches and crocheting in the round. Many patterns require you to knit a flat, round base. You can find a lot of tutorials on how to do this on YouTube.
Depending on the kind of basket you make, you’ll likely also want to learn how to crochet in the front or back loop for the first round of the sides of the basket. This is how you will work from the flat base, and then up the sides.
How Do You Crochet A Simple Basket?
There are many ways to crochet a basket, but the most common way is to first make a flat base, and then work the sides. Some baskets are a rectangle shape, so you’d start with a flat rectangular base, and then crochet the sides.
For round baskets, you will crochet flat circular base and then crochet in rounds to make the sides.
To keep it simple, use easy stitches like single crochet. Double crochet stitches can tend to be too loose, and you want to make a tight fabric!
