Super Easy Nautical Baskets Free Crochet Pattern
Difficulty: Easy / Beginner
Finished Size: 9″ wide x 8″ tall (large basket) and 6″ wide x 5.5″ tall (small basket)
Hook: H (5.0mm) and G (4.25mm). Because we’re using a small hook for a chunky yarn, make sure to protect your hands by using hooks with padded grips. I absolutely love my Clover Amour hooks!
Yarn: I used Bernat Maker Outdoor for my baskets, but most #5 weight chunky/bulky yarns will work; just avoid anything that’s super soft. For the large basket, you will need about 330 yards of COLOR A (I used “Navy Ink”) and 165 yards of COLOR B (I used “Fresh White”). For the small basket, you will need about 170 yards of COLOR A and 75 yards of COLOR B.
Gauge: With your larger hook, your first 8 rounds should measure 3.75″ wide.
You’ll also need:
Two 20″ (large basket) or 16″ (small basket) lengths of 3/8″ twisted rope for handles (available at craft stores)
Optional but recommended: Size 15/32″ (12mm) eyelet kit. Each basket needs 4 eyelets. You don’t have to add these but they will give your basket a beautiful, professional finished look.
Hammer (if using eyelets)
Plastic Canvas – look for the large sheets of ultra stiff, and get a couple per basket. If you can’t find the large sheets, that’s ok; just grab a couple extra of the smaller ones.
