Crochet Utility Mini Basket

"Looking for something quick and useful to make? These handy crochet utility baskets are just the project for you! These little crochet baskets are ideal for storing small things. Use them to store your jewelry, hair accessories ,sewing accessories....craft utility items...just about anything!!! Get creative and make them in different colors for your different things. Materials Used:- Bulky Yarn 8 mm Crochet Hook You can use any yarn of your choice ,but bulky yarn would the best for this project."


Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(5) Bulky/Chunky (12-15 stitches for 4 inches)

Round 1:- Start with a magic circle. Make 12 Double Crochet in the circle. Pull the loose end to close the gap.Make sure to pull it tight. Start each round with a Standing Double Crochet or you can use the standard Chain 2 method. Round 2:- Make 2 Double Crochet in each stitch around.(24) Slip stitch at end to join. Round 3 *DC1, 2DC* in next stitch(36) Slip stitch at end to join. Repeat from * to *. Round 4 Start the round with chain 1. This round we will be working only in the back loops. For working on back loops, instead of inserting your hook underneath the entire stitch, insert the hook in center of the stitch, and exit underneath the back loop. Make back loop single crochet in all stitches around. This would create the ridged edge and form the bottom edge of the basket. Round 5 This round on wards, its just simple Double Crochet all around in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch and just keep making 1 Double Crochet in each stitch around till you reach the height you want your basket to be. Once the desired height is reached end the round with a slip stitch. And....Tada......!!!!! ...your basket is ready to store your utilities. Or...simply twist the edge of the basket and use it as a Yarn Bowl..!!!!

This is the perfect project for all of my scrap yarn. It would also be a cute little addition to my otherwise drab office desk. Love this!

The first thing I noticed was that the hook size listed here is not what is listed on the designers blog. Here it says to use a 5 mm hook. On the blog it says to use an 8 mm hook. It looks to be an 8 mm hook in the images on the blog as well. This pattern is easy to follow, and the designer has included several photos to help those who like to compare their work to the design as they go. These little baskets work up quickly and can be used for so many things. With the holidays right around the corner, I plan to use them for small gift baskets.

What an adorable basket and great way to use up scraps of yarn. I did not even think of a yarn bowl but it would be perfect. I have to do that since I always have my yarn rolling all over the floor. Easy pattern to follow and you can customize it as well. Thank you.

Neat idea and super easy pattern! It is a basic circle with the formula for increasing stitches around, then work in back loops only to begin working up the sides of this cute little basket. ONce you know the formula for increasing you can customize the sizes of your baskets to suit your needs.
