Lightweight Square Basket Pattern


  • 25 gr of worsted weight yarn in one color
  • 50 gr of worsted weight yarn in another color
  • 5mm/H crochet hook


  1. Start by chaining 13.  Then single crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook and all the way across for a total of 12 single crochets.  Crochet in the back side of the chain when making this first row.

  2. When you flip the chain over and crochet on the back side of the chain, you end up with a nicely finished bottom edge.  This is helpful later when you attach the individual squares together to make the box.

  3. Crochet 13 rows of single crochet to end up with a square.  Make 5 of the same sized squares.

  4. Then attach 4 squares to each side of the 5th square,  simply single crocheted the edges of the squares together.  Be careful to line the edges up when attaching the 2 squares.

  5. Next, using single crochet, attach each of the sides together to form a box.
  6. When you join the final corner together, start crocheting from the bottom of the box. Once the side seam is finished, turn the box so that you can single crochet on the outside loop of the top. row.  Crocheting only in the outer loop is what make the folded top lay down nicely.

  7. Crochet around the entire top using only the outside loop, join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet.  Then single crochet normally around foe 4-5 rows, until the fold is the length you like.  Finish off and weave all loose yarn into the basket fabric.
