Rectangle Crochet Basket With Handles

2 Materials
1 Hour
Easy

What would be better than a Basket when you think of organizing your stuff. I love making Crochet Baskets. They are a great option if you are looking out for a quick organizing crochet project. Using the same pattern you can make them in various sizes of your choice by increasing the number of rounds in the base of the basket.

Today am sharing the Pattern for this pretty dual toned Rectangle Basket with handles. The handles of the basket makes it very easy to carry around.


Materials Used:-

Bulky Yarn

6mm Crochet Hook


Notes:-

For the whole pattern the Starting Chain 1 is not counted as a stitch.

It is just to bring the yarn to a working height.

Here is the Video Tutorial:-

Round 1:-

Start with a slip knot.

Chain 11.

1 Single Crochet in the 2nd Chain from the Hook.1 Single Crochet in rest of the stitches untill the last stitch.

3 Single Crochet in the last stitch.

Continue working on the opposite side.1 single each in rest of the stitches untill the last stitch.

3 Single Crochet in the last stitch.

Slip stitch on top of the 1st Single Crochet.


Round 2:-

Chain 1(Not Counted as s Stitch)1 Single Crochet in the same stitch.

1 Single Crochet each in rest of the stitches untill you reach the turning 3 Single Crochets.

3 Single Crochets and mark the 2nd stitch with a stitch marker.This would be the stitch for making the increase in the next round.

1 Single Crochet in the next Stitch.

3 Single Crochets in the next stitch.Again mark the 2nd stitch with a marker.Continue with 1 Single Crochet in the remaining stitches untill the next turning 3 Single Crochets

Repeat the same on this side too.

3 Single Crochets and mark.(Mark the middle stitch)1 Single Crochet in the next Stitch.3 Single Crochets in the next stitch.(Mark the middle stitch)Slip Stitch on top 1st Single Crochet.


Round 3:-

Keep Repeating round 2 untill you reach the size needed.


  • Just Remember :-Start each round with Chain 1(Not Counted as a Stitch, 1 Single Crochet in the same stitch.
  • Mark each corner stitch.
  • 3 Single Crochets in the marked corner stitches.
  • As the size of the rectangle grows, the Single Crochets between the marked stitches will keep increasing.


Turning Base:-

Start with Chain 1.(Not Counted as a stitch)1 Backloop Single Crochet in the same stitch.

1 Backloop Single Crochet in the remaining stitches.

Once you reach the end do not slip stitch. We will be working in continuous rounds.


Sides of the Basket:-

Continue making 1 Single Crochet in each and every stitch around untill the size needed.

Change the yarn color for the last 3 rounds.


Handles:-

Mark the 4 stitches next to the corner most stitch with stitch markers.

1 Single Crochet in each stitch untill you reach the first marked stitch.

Chain 12.

Skip the stitches between the two marked stitches and 1 Single Crochet into the stitch next to the marked stitch.

This will make the 1st handle.

1 Single Crochet in each stitch untill you reach the next corner.

Repeat the same as the first handle.


Border:-

1 Single Crochet in each stitch untill you reach the handle.

12 Single Crochets on the handle Chain Stitches.

Continue with 1 Single Crochet in each stitch untill the next handle.

Repeat the same as the 1st handle.

1 Single Crochet each in the remaining stitches.

Slip stitch and weave off.

    Can you tell me about what size these baskets came out to be? I want to make some for cubby hole cabinets instead of buying the holders to go in them! Also looks like from the info. that you needed about two skeins of yarn, so I guess I would double that amount of I wanted to make them taller!? Thanks do.much.for the pattern!
