FREE CROCHET PATTERN - The Mini Crochet Basket Pattern By BrennaAnnHandmade


Happy Monday Maker's! Today I'm introducing you to the 1st FREE crochet pattern I ever designed / released back in January of 2017, in collaboration with HobiumYarns! :)

These adorable mini baskets are super quick & easy to whip up in no time, they're the perfect vessel to hold buttons, or any small items that need a cute storage container!  The best part is, you only need ONE skein of yarn to make one!  ;)


The Gipsy KARTOPU Wool used to create this pattern is perfect for mini baskets, in that it is chunky (so works up fast) but also creates a nice, sturdy basket when finished. :)

Are you ready to get started? Great! Let's go!


Materials needed:
1 Skein Gipsy KARTOPU Wool (Yarn is held doubled throughout pattern)
8mm crochet hook
5mm crochet hook OR tapestry needle (for weaving in ends)
Scissors
