Free Crochet Baskets for Every Room In Your House! Ideas New 2021
I designed the basket crochet pattern because I am in love with home decor and I really enjoy finding ways to add crochet punch to rooms as much as I can! So when my friend said he needed a potting cover, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
I have been looking for a certain size basket for a while with no luck. Then I saw a circular version of this idea and realized I could make my own!
This uses a technique similar to crochet where you crochet over another yarn to add volume to one fabric. This works the same way if you’ve previously crocheted your ends to avoid weaving.
In this case, I used rope instead of another thread, this is much more bulky but great for adding rigidity and making each row deeper. This project had the advantage of using just one strawberry I left in my stash!
Spring has come and it has given me the mood to clean and organize my whole house! One thing I like to use for storage are baskets. Today I will share a simple crochet basket with handles that are perfect for holding toys, sewing supplies, or thread!
CARROT DOOR BASKET

5.7″ foam ball for artificial flowers
Large Yarn Needle

Okay, so it turns out that whole eating carrots for your eyes thing is a myth. But the Carrot Door Basket is a great way to make your eyes smile by adding some festive fun to your front door! Add artificial greenery for a big look that’s low maintenance, that you can enjoy year after year.
Knitted Hanging Basket
4 stitches and 6 rows over 2 inches. (Gage not necessary, but I put it in case you want the exact size of the sample)
One set of size US15 (10mm) circular or double point needles. Or similar in size.
One Skein of Super Bulky yarn.
I’ve been wanting to make a hanging basket for my bathroom for a while now. The hubs likes to set out his clothes for the night before, but would always put his socks, undies, and undershirt on the counter. So I went to make him a hanging basket, and noticed there wasn’t a single hanging basket in knit!
Mini Bunny Basket
4 mm crochet hook
25g light Yarn DK Yarn Weigth #3
Free crochet pattern to make a mini bunny basket. This is a quick and easy project to do at Easter. The basket includes rabbit ears and tail, and the option to make a set of them.

The basket has a small opening so it’s perfect for holding candy. This little chick would also make a great addition to a kid’s Easter Basket (I wouldn’t recommend this for very small children because of the button eyes).

J (6.0mm) hook I used my Furls Crochet Streamline Swirl. (save15% off your Furls order when you use code SINCERELYPAM15)
I’m addicted to baskets (purely purposeful). Not only do they compliment the addiction I have to take care of my plant babies, but they also work incredibly fast and use a minimal amount of yarn. Not to mention how thoughtful it was to cover up an ugly flower pot before giving it as a gift! The Julie Basket crochet pattern is no different.

Height: 4” (10 cm).
Small, pretty hanging baskets – perfect for storage in the bathroom or the office. They are crocheted in Rainbow Cotton 8/4 double thread or 8/8 single thread. A quick, little project.

I have become that plant lady. Well, at least a plant lady in training. I feel like it’s the latest trend and a pretty one. I’ve adopted ten new house plants over the last few months.

One of the best parts about being a fibre artist is being able to create one-of-a-kind gifts that cannot be bought in stores! This past Christmas, I was brainstorming what to make for kindergarten teacher and teaching assistant as I wanted to make them something very special

Now that is in kindergarten, she goes to school everyday, and I am so thankful that has been blessed with an amazing and experienced teacher who is so intentional with everything she does in the classroom. The children are learning so much and I love all the rhymes, songs, and activities she does to help the children learn, explore their senses, and also have fun.
Cascade Yarns Lana Grande, 1 ball per basket. Or approximately 90 yards super bulky weight yarn per basket.

The first part of the basket is worked in continuous rounds of single crochet. Then the work is joined and continued in textured stitches.
Everyone needs a good basket, don’t you think? With school starting recently, I knew I wanted to design a simple but functional crochet basket for organization. Meet the Moonbeam Baskets!
Zig Zag Belly Basket

Solids (170g/6oz, 106yds/97m)

M/N – 9.00 mm crochet hook for basket sides

cable holder/knitting needle/even wooden skewer for the i-cord
You know me, can’t leave well enough alone. I can’t just crochet a plain ol’ belly basket, I have to crochet a zig zag STRIPED belly basket, just to add some spice to life. And why not? Using two different yarns is great for adding color and interest, and helps with any stash-busting goals you might have.
For Basket: Lion Brand Yarn: Rewind Tape Yarn, 5 Bulky, 70% Polyester 30% viscose, 219 yards and 100g.
For handles: Lion Brand Yarn: Re-up, 4/ worsted, 100% cotton, 100g. (only 25g needed)
For Basket: J/10 6mm (I’m a really loose crocheter so you might have to choose a larger hook to get gauge)
For handles: G/7 4.5mm
Notions: Tapestry needle
Size: 30 inch circumference, 7 inch height
Gauge: 12 st x 14 rows = 4 inches
Stitches Used: Chain (ch), Single crochet (sc), Slip Stitch (sl st), Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc), Double crochet stitch (dc), Front post double treble crochet (fpdtc)
fpdtr: yo 3 times, insert hook around desired stitch from front to back, yo and pull through for a total of 5 loops on the hoop, (yo and pull through 2 loops) 4 times.
Some of the best advice I have gotten in my creative business is, “when you have a creative block go back to what you already know and build off of what you have already done.” So for me a lot of the time that looks like re-using a stitch pattern or if I have a hat pattern I will try and make a cowl or gloves to go with the hat.
Custom Rope Basket
You will need:
Length of rope (mine was 38m in length and 6mm diameter, for a 22x42x17cm basket)
Stash yarn (I used 310m of Patons 100% cotton 4ply in a cream colourway)
Size 5.00mm crochet hook (use a metal hook if possible as the work is quite stiff), or larger if your rope is thicker.
This uses a technique similar to thrumming, where you crochet over another thread to add bulk to a fabric. If you have ever crocheted over your ends to avoid weaving in, this works the same way.
In this case I used rope instead of another yarn, which is a lot bulkier but great for adding stiffness and making each row deeper. This project had the added bonus of using up a single skein I had left in my stash!
The Ridge Basket
Level: Basic Knitting
Finished Measurements: Approximately 9″ H x 10″ W
1 x 50-yard ball of Tough Love or Tough Love Stripe yarn
Size 50 (25mm) straight needles
Super simple garter stitch that is seamed and cinched into a clean-lined, modern basket. We particularly love the way it looks as a planter or with a vase with flowers!
Chunky Floor Basket
You will also need the following supplies:
15 mm (US P/Q) crochet hook
Jumbo Tapestry Needle
Loops and Threads Chunky, Color #4, Seaside (6 skeins)
Back at the beginning of the year, I fell victim to 50% off Loops and Threads yarn at Michaels with free shipping, and ordered six skeins of multicolored chunky yarn with no plan. For months, this yarn has been sitting on my shelf without a plan. For a while, I felt like I should have ordered either more or less, because I could have made something nice and squishy like a rug or a scarf, but I’m so happy I didn’t, because it turned out to be the perfect amount of yarn for this chunky floor basket!
Lobster Tail Crochet Baskets
Scheepjes Cahlista (70% cotton/30% acrylic), 50g/75m/82yds
Main Colour (MC) – 393 (Grey)
Contrasting Colour 1 (CC1) – 244 (Petrol)
Contrasting Colour 2 (CC2) – 388 (Burnt Orange)
A month or so ago, I was playing around with stitches… specifically with Crab Stitches. I LOOOOVE Crab Stitches. I hit upon this Crab Stitch Linen Stitch or Reverse Single Crochet Linen Stitch, and I fell head over heels in love with it! It has got the prettiest woven look and creates a lovely dense fabric! I think it looks like lobster tails (especially in the burnt orange I was using at the time).

I love the idea of being organised, with a home for every item. I just… fall short on the execution sometimes! Particularly when it comes to the smaller items; my jewelry laying loose on my nightstand, or toiletries scattered on the bathroom counter. So I whipped up these beautiful little crochet nesting baskets to help me out!
Cotton Cloths and Basket
5.5mm Crochet Hook
Premiere Home Cotton Yarn – Multi – Gray Splash (3 skeins) – Used for Cloths
Bernat Handicrafter DeLux Cotton Yarn – Rustic Grey (1 skein) – Used for Basket
In an effort to produce less paper waste I designed these cotton cloths with a matching basket. They sit right next to my paper towels so I remember to use these them instead. Washable cotton cloths can replace your hand towels, paper towels, napkins or rags. When dirty, simply throw them in the washer and dryer to make them like new. I promise these little cloths will be your new favorite eco cleaning accessory so plan to make some extras to have on hand – they make great gifts too!
