Rustic Crochet Baskets Patterns

I'm trying to find cheap ways to decorate my bathroom for the $100 Room Challenge. Why not make some cute baskets that will bring color to the room.

Erin, from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry, started this series in September 2015 : 

One room, one month and $100

Now she opened it to other bloggers and I'm glad to say that I'm part of it, updating my bathroom.


See the recap here : 
 Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5


We're currently on our way to week four so these cuties will be featured (among other things) in that week's post. 

If you would like to make these baskets, they are pretty easy and kept me busy during my flight back home from springbreak 😉

What you'll need :

  • Worsted weight yarn (go mine at Hobby Lobby during spring break. With the 40% coupon, it costed me $2,53)

    Pattern

    ch : chain
    st : stitch
    sl st : slip stitch
    Sc : single crochet
    dc : double crochet
    dec : decrease (1 dc in the next 2 st)
    Inc : increase (2 dc (or sc) in the next st)


    Big basket
    (about 6-1/2" diameter)

    R1 - Start by making a magic circle of 12 dc / join with sl st to form ring (12)
    R2 - ch 3 / Inc with dc / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (24)
    R3 - ch 3 / {dc / inc with dc } repeat { } around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (36)
    R4 - ch 3 / {dc in next 2 st / inc with dc } repeat { } around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (48)
    R5 - ch 1 / sc in back loop, all around / sl st in the ch 1 of the beginning (48) This will be the bottom edge of the basket


    Sides
    R6 and R7 - ch 1 / sc all around / sl st in the ch 1 of the beginning (48)
    R8 - ch 3 / dc all around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (48)
    R9 - ch 3 / {dc in next 5 st / dec with dc } repeat { } around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (40)
    R10 - ch 3 / dc all around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (40)


    Change to burlap rope
    R11 - ch 3 / dc all around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (40)
    R12 - ch 1 / sc all around / sl st in the ch 1 of the beginning (40)


    Fasten off and weave in ends.


    Small basket

    (about 4" diameters)


    R1 - Start by making a magic circle of 12 dc / join with sl st to form ring (12)

    R2 - ch 3 / Inc with dc / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (24)

    R3 - ch 3 / {dc / inc with dc } repeat { } around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (36)

    R4 - ch 1 / sc in back loop, all around / sl st in the ch 1 of the beginning (36) This will be the bottom edge of the basket

    Sides
    R5 to R7 - ch 1 / sc all around / sl st in the ch 1 of the beginning (36)
    R8 and R9 - ch 3 / dc all around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (36)
    *note : for the small basket, I didn’t decrease, but I think I should have cause the top seem to open a bit.


    Change to burlap rope

    R10 - ch 3 / dc all around / sl st in 3rd chain of first ch 3 (36)
    R11 - ch 1 / sc all around / sl st in the ch 1 of the beginning (36)


    Fasten off and weave in ends.
