Storage Basket

t-shirt-basket-coming-soonThis simple basket can easily be modified to make in larger or smaller depending on what you want to use it for.

The basket shown used two reels of Hooked Zpagetti, other t shirt yarns could be substituted.

You will also need a 12mm crochet hook and a needle and cotton to sew in the ends (weaving them in will do, but for security I stitch mine on the wrong side). A stitch marker is helpful to mark end of rounds.

Pattern is written in standard UK crochet terms (see pattern support tab for a link to abbreviations list).

Pattern Starts Here:

The basket is worked in spirals, at the end of each round, do not turn and do not join with a slip stitch.

With 12mm hook and chosen yarn make 6 ch, join to make a ring.

Round 1: 6 dc into ring. 6 dc

Round 2: (2 dc in each dc) 6 times. 12 dc

Round 3: (1 dc, 2 dc in next stitch) 6 times. 18 dc

Round 4: (2 dc, 2 dc in next st) 6 times. 24 dc

Round 5: (3 dc, 2 dc in next st) 6 times. 30 dc

Round 6: (4 dc, 2 dc in next st) 6 times. 36 dc

Round 7: 1 dcblo in each dc.

Round 8: (4 dc, dc2tog) 6 times) 30 dc

Round 9 onwards: 1 dc in each dc around until sides measure 24cm.

Fasten off. Sew in ends using needle and cotton.
