Crochet baskets are useful decorative pieces. They enhance the beauty of your room as well as can be used to store small to medium sized items. Here is a tutorial on a common crochet basket pattern.
The basket will be 1.5 inches high with 1.5 inches bottom diameter and 2 inches top diameter. To harden the basket, dip it into sugar water solution. You will need appropriate yarn and crochet hook to make this pattern.
At first, make 6 single stitches in the first chain. Now use both loops at the top of the stitch and make one single crochet in 1st single chain, 2nd single crochet in the next single crochet and so on. Repeat for the entire row.
For the next row, make 2 single crochet in every 3rd stitch. For the next row, make 2 single crochet in every 4th stitch. Continue adding one single crochet in the dimension of the basket, until the desired measurement is achieved.
Do the next row as follows: Chain stitch 3, 1 double crochet in last single crochet, chain stitch 1, skip 2 single crochet, 2 double crochet in the next stitch.
For the next row, do as follows: Chain stitch 3, 2 double crotchets in first space, chain stitch 1, 3 double crochet in same space, 1 double crochet in next space, 3 double crotchets in next space. Continue this ending in 1 double crochet in last space.
Do the next row as follows: Chain stitch 3, use a grouping ( 3 double crochet, chain stitch 2, 3 double crochet) in the middle of the next group, 1 double crochet on 1 double crochet. Make as many rows needed to crochet basket pattern.
To finish, make 5 single crochet with 4 picots between the groups and 1 single crochet in each double crochet between the groups.
