Quick Crochet Basket- Free Crochet Pattern

Hello Craftees, it’s time to crochet something new. A crochet for home project, a nice, little quick crochet basket pattern that’s handy all around the house.

This boho crochet basket pattern is relatively easy and quick to crochet. The contrast colour accents add a carefree vibe to an other wise bland design. This crochet basket can be used anywhere in the home, the office or craft space.

It is part of the Cozy at Home crochet-along with Marie of the Undergroundcrafter, featuring many talented designers. So, you have a lot of patterns designed for home to choose from. For more details on the crochet-along, i encourage you to visit Marie’s blog.

One of the things I really like about this cute boho basket is the use of left-over yarn. I am always thinking of small project ideas to make with left over yarn. Some of the ones on Yarn Craftee are bean stitch cardholder, tapestry crochet bag, drawstring pouch to mention a few.

The Yarn

This crochet basket pattern uses two strands of cotton DK yarn held together. However, that is not necessary if you have cotton worsted weight yarn. Unless you want a thicker basket.
