A Crochet Hanging Wall Basket
This crochet pocket wall hanging can be worked up quickly. All you need to do is make a simple square, add a loop to hang it from, and sew it up. I added a special stitch to give this crochet project more texture but you could make this crochet hanging wall basket with just basic stitches as well. use this basket to hold flowers, books, mail, or more.
Yarn Choice and Substitution
I decided to use cotton for this project because I love the natural look. You can use any yarn for this project, just be aware that if you place heavy things in the hanging wall basket then yarns like wool and acrylic will stretch under the weight. You can even use a thicker yarn and a larger hook to create a larger basket.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Crochet Hanging Wall Basket Pattern
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH2, turning chain, as a stitch.
– You can adjust the pattern by working more or fewer chains in the foundation chain. You will want to work any even number of chains. You will also have to work the pattern repeat until you have a square. (This may be more or fewer rows depending on how you adjusted your starting chain.)
Row 1: DC in the 3rd CH from the hook. DC in next 31 CH. (32 DC)
Row 2: CH2, turn, DC into the first ST. *Skip a ST, DC into next ST, DC into Skipped ST* repeat from *to* a total of 15 times. DC in last ST. (32 DC)
Row 3: CH2, turn, DC in next 32 STs.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 17 rows. Do not fasten off.
Row 18: CH 10, turn so you are working down the side of the rows. Work 2 SC into the side of each Row.
Row 18 Cont’d: CH1, turn so you are working into the other side of the starting chain. Work 1 SC into the opposite side of each CH. CH1, turn so you are working into the side of the rows. Work 2 SC into the side of each row. CH1, turn so you are working into the top of Row 17. Work 1 SC into each ST of Row 17.
Row 18 Cont’d: Work 13 SC into the CH10 loop created at the beginning of the row. Fasten off and use your end to sew the last SC to the first SC of the row. Weave in your ends.
Now we just need to fold and sew up our square into a hanging wall basket.
Sewing up your Crochet Pocket Wall Hanging
Start by laying your piece on a surface with the hanging loop at the top. Take the two side corner and fold them into the center.
Then fold the bottom corner to line up with the sides of the other two corners.
Now use an invisible stitch or mattress stitch to sew the sides of the square together along the dotted line, shown in the photo above. Weave in your ends.
You can be done here or you can add some tassels to spice up your crochet hanging wall basket. It is your choice. Once you are done, just hang your basket up by the loop and enjoy.
