A crochet hanging basket can add to the charm of your studio or your kid’s nursery all while giving you a little extra storage space for your lightweight items. Use them to store towels, small stuffed toys or even hold plastic bags in your kitchen.


Crochet Hanging Basket

 

 

 

 

Since this crochet hanging basket pattern is designed using the plush and bulky Bernat blanket yarn all it takes is one strand to get a sturdy basket. No hassle of holding the strands together and hurting your hands. This is a very quick and easy pattern. When you get tired of working those Afghans this project could be the perfect break. I hope you enjoy the free crochet pattern.

Hi, question, after finishing row 8, I then go ahead and repeat it but I end up doing the last sc/DC right before my marker. Is that how it should be? I've frogged it twice 😩 thanks so much!

The last sc/dc should not be in the st right before the marker but one st before. I mean, after you do your last sc/dc, there will be one st free before the marker.

Love this pattern! I have been using it with medium worsted weight yarn which gauges them down to mini baskets. I have been decorating my office at work and made one for my little plush stitch character to hang out in which the kiddos think is awesome. I'm currently making more to do fake cascading plants in as well. It is the perfect mix of country and classy. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern with us!

I’m not understanding the second to last row, the one where you change colors. I’m to the part where it says “16 sc2tog”. I don’t understand what this means. I’m almost exactly 1/2 way through the row. Please help.

sc2tog is a decrease that will join 2 stitches into one. You can look under stitch explanations in the pattern or search Youtube for "single crochet decrease".
