Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this Mini Crochet Basket pattern. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauges, video tutorials, and sizing information.
Mini Crochet Basket to Tame the Clutter
I just love having little crochet accents all around the house. These baskets are great in the bathroom or office. You can fill them with cotton swabs, bandaids, and even pencils. If you are looking for a larger basket that is similar, then check out the heart plant baskets.
Picking the Right Yarn
Because my baskets are in the bathroom I chose to use cotton yarn. Cotton stretches less than acrylic yarn. You could also use acrylic yarn or wool for this project. You can also use a thicker yarn with 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.

Basket 3: Repeat row 2 until you have 42 rows total.
Fasten off leaving a 12-inch yarn end for sewing.
Assembling the Basket
Fold the basket side piece in half so the small ends are together. Use the long yarn end to whip stitch the two small ends together. This will create a tube.
Use the long yarn end on the basket base piece to whip stitch the basket base to one side of the tube. The number of stitches on the last row of the base piece will be equal to the number of rows worked in the side piece. This will allow you to whip stitch the side of one row to each stitch on the base piece.
Fold your sides down as far as you would like.
Now your mini crochet basket is complete and ready to be filled and enjoyed. Fill it with bathroom or office essentials.
