This Easy Crochet Basket can be worked in any size you choose, creating a simple fabric with basic stitches!

This pattern is worked in joined rounds of single crochet stitches, and you can easily adjust the size as you go. It’s a great pattern because:

  • This Easy Crochet Basket is a quick and easy project to work up!
  • Baskets are great projects to use around the house (they’re not just for plants)!
  • This project works great with cotton yarns, and plant-based fibers, but you can use up stash yarn of your choice!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: joined rounds, stitch tension, gauge & size, increasing, back loop only, finishing techniques & more!
