Hanging crochet basket

When I made the set of 3 crochet baskets I had some leftover yarn and wanted to play around with making a hanging crochet basket. I’m really happy with the result, as is my cat…..I am going to experiment with a cat nest for her.

This would work well hanging off of your coat rack to keep gloves and hats together.  I have one hanging from my curtain rod to keep some light things up and out of the way.

If you are interested in a printable PDF of this pattern you can find one here in my Etsy store.

What You Need

  • 120 grams Bernat Softee yarn (leftover from last weeks pattern)
  • 70 grams Aran Bernat Chunky
  • 6.5mm crochet hook
  • Darning needle

Stitches Used

  • magic circle
  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • slst – slip stitch
  • sc dec – single crochet decrease
  • st – stitch

Important Tip

The chain 1 at the beginning of each row is not counted, and do not work in it.  Slip Stitch to the first single crochet in the round, and work the first stitch of that row in the same stitch as the chain.
