Mini Crochet Basket

Mini Crochet Basket Avyastore

Love the Easter crochet basket, got the inspiration from these basket for this project.

This attractive basket is quick and easy to make, and is a good bazaar or gift item. Can be made in variety of colors.  Willing to try the tulip stitch, I have modified the stitch and tried to get the look.

The mini crochet basket is started with a center and extends upwards, i.e. working in spirals. Level of skills required are intermediate.

Supply List for Mini Crochet Basket

  • Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. We have used Anchor Size 10, 3 Different Colors are required.
  • Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the flower, we used a size I.75 mm steel crochet hook.

Finished Size:

The motif measures about 6 X 4 inches in size. The sizes will vary based on supplies used and other factors.

General Direction:

Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.

That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each to fit the needs of your project.

When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
