Gather Your Supplies

For this crochet & knit basket I recommend using Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend yarn. It’s really soft and easy to work with. Plus it comes in a variety of colors!

To make one basket, you will need about 75 yards of yarn.

If you choose to substitute yarn, I recommend you stay in the worsted weight category.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 75 yds, Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn (Chai Latte shown)
  • 4 mm Crochet Hook
  • 5.5 mm circular knitting needle, 16″
  • Darning Needle
  • Scissors

Pattern Notes

This quick and easy crochet and knit basket begins with a crochet round base and is complete with knit basket weave stitch sides.

Use this basket as a planter cover, hanging basket or soft basket that’s easy to stuff with your favorite things. You may also block your crochet & knit basket with starch or a 1:1 glue/water solution for a stiffer look.
