Crochet: Nesting Basket

Ever since I created my first crochet basket (as seen on this site under “Bright Basket”), I’ve been hooked. Yeah, I just made a crochet pun. I’m not sorry.

I scored some great twine at my local Home Depot and couldn’t wait to make a nesting basket. There are many patterns floating around the internet, but I just re-purposed one that worked for me. Without rambling on for too long, here is my little basket in all its glory with a little pink flower for good measure:

Crochet Nesting Basket

Materials:

  • Medium-weight twine
  • Size 5.50MM Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle

Crochet Stitches Used:

  • Single crochet

Pattern:

Chain 4 stitches and join in the round

Single crochet 8 times into the centre to create first round

Work in a spiral: *single crochet once into the first space, single crochet twice into the second space to increase

Repeat from * until you reach your desired base circumference

Once your base is complete, single crochet on the outer stitch only for one round

On the next round, single crochet into both stitches to build the body of the basket

Continue to work in the round until you reach your desired size

Happy crocheting!
