Pattern Notes

This crochet basket pattern begins by working a flat round piece for the bottom, continues in the basket weave pattern to form the sides and finishes the handles in single crochet. The basket weave pattern may look slightly complicated in the written form if you are new to crochet or reading patterns. I recommend taking a look at the basket weave stitch tutorial to familiarize yourself with the stitch. It’s actually much easier than you may think!

Don’t be intimidated by working the basket weave stitch in the round. It’s not nearly as difficult as you might think to adjust the pattern. Your chain 3 at the beginning of the basket weave pattern (round 9 in this case) will act as a double crochet, so don’t forget to count it as such. You will join with a slst to the second chain for every round. This is a great project to challenge yourself if you’ve never worked this stitch in the round before!
