Free pattern: small hangable crochet basket
This simple, yet convenient little basket is perfect to story small items, such as your crochet hooks. Or use it for your pencils and place it on your desk. Versatile crochet baskets always come in handy, you can never have enough! For this pattern, we used our newest recycled gradient yarn Wavy Blends. This cake yarn is super soft and creates beautiful, subtle colour flows. You don’t need much for this easy project: one ball Wavy Blends, a crochet hook and of course some scissors and a stitch marker if you’d like. Get started right away! This pattern is designed by the fabulous Emmaknitty.

What you need:


Size of finished project:
Diameter approx. 8cm x height 14cm.


Used stitches:
Slip stitch – sl st
Chain – ch
